Hi:) well I hope I put this question in the right place. It seems someone was listening to me and got me filters for my fish.
So here is my question, I received Whisper 3i Filters for my two betta tanks. (2.5 gal tanks) I want to know if I can just put the filters in the water with them. I was reading things about ammonia spikes and don't want to hurt my fish.
If I can add the filters right away, Should I be adding them to tanks with newly changed water?
And after the filter is in there how much water should I be changing and how often? (I don't have a water test kit. But if need be I live close to a petsmart and can have the water tested there.)
Also don't have a siphon/ gravel vacuum ~maybe I'll invest but for now I was reading about some people using turkey basters. :o
(I have 1 live plant in each tank atm if it matters)
