Got a new tank for my betta fish..

My other one was leaking so I had to get a new one. It's the exact same type as the old one. I put in new gravel, a new tree and a new filter. Is he going to be alright? I put conditioner and supplement in the water too.

It depends on the size of the tank, if its more than 3 gallons then make sure you cycle the tank first before you add in the fish and if the tank is small make sure you do water changes atleast 3 times a week. you also need to keep the temp to about 75-80 degrees I believe.

Welcome to the forum......

You can safely establish the nitrogen cycle with the Betta provided that you are willing and able to make the needed water changes-you can speed this up by using your old filter media in the new filter if the beneficial bacteria are still viable.....

Be sure and properly acclimate him to the new tank water chemistry by adding small amount of water from the new dechlorinated like temp water to the holding container with the Betta over 10-15 min....

Look forward to some pics.....
