I have one girl Betta. She seems really young compared to the other ones I saw at the store, wich by the way was Walmart. I bought her a One Gallon Fish Bowl. I have put gravel in, my mom cleaned everything before putting her in her new fish bowl. It has a lid and has a light also above her and her air hole where I also feed her thorugh. I bought her yesterday a fish tank logg, plastic with silky plants that are also for fish tanks. My mom says she will be changing the water ounce a week every week 100% of the water.
For food I give her BettaMin Tropical Medly flakes by Tetra ounce a day because she is so small. So far dayly because she is active and fine and normal fish activity. I also used Betta Safe water Conditioner also by Tetra. I also bought yesterday on her second day Aquarium Salt by Jungle. I will be using it when I change the water soon. She is a "Vailtail" as per the cup she came in.
I also moved her to my room so she can be kept as warm as possible. She was at 74.23 now her temp is 76.24. I know it is not ideal since it should be 78 but I am really doing the best I can. I can't put a heater in and I was thinking will a heating pad help at least for the cold season?
The one time I had a Betta Fish he lasted a year or so and he only lived in a small cup for Betta's back in the 90's so I think I have done my very, very best for her.
Any other suggestions or help I can use to make sure she is thriving as much as possible?
