And completely mad at myself. I'm clearing a failure. Of course, I have so many problems.
Sooo got a betta, he's adorable, I already love him, his name is King Henry I.
I got the tank, cleaned, conditioned, decorated it, made sure the water temp was right.
Soooo the heater and the filter are really frustrating me. I have the heater set in there at an angle on the side of the tank about in the middle. It's plugged in but I'm not sure if it's working or not. I mean, the temp fluctuates from 76 to 78 to 80. It's one of those heaters that automatically sets the temp in the tank, too. So any advice on how to tell if that's working?
And with the filter, I FINALLY got it to work (the Impeller wasn't shoved down the filter enough, I guess.) So it's sucking it in the tube and pouring it out the spout thing (I forgot the parts' names. xD). But the spout thing is about 1 inch and a half above the water surface and the water flow is "hitting" the surface of the water. Is this normal? I don't want to stress Henry out because I want him to be as happy and safe as possible or I won't be able to sleep.
SORRY, like really, really sorry about rambling and dragging this out. I'm a problem child. Haha.
