I was given a beautiful red Betta for my birthday back in November (his name is Fin!). Currently he just lives in a standard fish bowl that holds.. I dunno.. maybe 2-3 liters of water. I'm not sure of the exact amount. Anyhow, I'm looking into getting this kit from Amazon, a 5 Gallon Marina Style Glass Aquarium Kit
. I'm on a pretty tight budget right now so this sounded ideal for my price range.
I'm also wondering about gravel... is there anything I need to know to look for when looking for gravel for a Betta tank? Or is standard tank sand/rocks/gravel OK to use? How much do I need for a 5 gallon tank? I'm thinking of getting a 1 pound bag of the Marina Decorative Gravel
because the price seems fair. Is 1 pound enough to coat the bottom of my tank or will I need more?
Sorry for all the questions. I've never really had a fish before so I'm clueless on how to take care of one. Any help is greatly appreciated!
