I'm new to being a Betta owner so I want to learn as much as I can that way my little guys live for a long time. :) I purchased one of my Bettas a couple of months ago from Wal Mart, I saw him and felt so bad I had to bring him home. I'm not sure what kind of Betta he is?
His name is Pearly and I love him so much! I'm going to start adding more decor to his tank so bare with me! :)
Last week I went to Wal Mart again and decided I'd take a little stroll by the Bettas... Next thing I knew I had already picked out another little guy and brought him home! He's a crown tail.
His name is Glow, I named him that because the beginning of his tail fin looks like it glows in the dark!
I have each one in a 2.5 gallon tank and I purchased water heaters for both of them because the water was getting way too cold and I was scared something would happen to them. I purchased a 7.5 watt heater that's for 2 to 5 gallons. I've had them in there basically all day today and the temperature has only gone up 2 degrees... I wonder if I'm doing something wrong or if it just takes a while because the water was really cold?
I'm glad I found this forum, I'm ready to create new Betta friends and learn a lot on how to keep my Bettas happy and healthy! :D
