Hello everyone. I just recently started getting into betta fishes and boy am I nuts over them. I got two betta fish, one 5 days ago and another one just today. Just wanted to introduce my fishies (no names yet) and one question. My first betta is in a 1.7ish gallon tank and from what I gather from lurking around these forums, 2.5 gallon is the minimum everyone recommends. Only thing is, all the 2.5 gallons I saw online didn't look that much bigger and if anything, I think my tank looks a lot better and has more room to swim horizontally. Here's the picture of my tank
Here's the little bugger (the store advertised him as a super delta and it looks like that to me also)
Sorry for the image quality. I'm using a webcam and I'll try to borrow my girlfriend's camera soon. I can't take photos of my second betta because he's unfortunately in a water jug that is wavy so can't really see him. I just bought him today on impulse so I didn't get him a tank yet. I'm going tank shopping tomorrow. The second betta is a half moon and dark blue with some red showing on his bottom tail after I put him in new water.
I'm thinking of buying him the same tank as my first betta. I know a lot of people won't be quite happy with that, but my first betta looks very happy in his home and he already made 3 bubble nests. Only thing is I have to do 100% water changes every other day and 50% every other day as well. I feed them pellets and frozen bloodworms. I could get the 10 gallon tank at walmart for 15 bucks but it's really hard to catch them putting it up. They only have one out and it's gone really fast. All the other tanks they sell have stuff I don't want which jacks up the price. I'm actually ambitious enough to get the 10 gallon and buy another betta LOL.
And in case anyone is wondering why they see no heater, it's because I don't need one. I live in Hawaii so the temperature is always stable. Right now the temperature is at 80 degrees and it's always at 80.
