So I was at PetCo the other day shopping for my rabbit and I wandered into the fish section and I found two beautiful Betta's that I fell in love with. Anyways, I believed that one of the small half gallon tanks with a divider was enough. After looking at them in it, and reading this website I've realized I made a horrible mistake. I feel awful. I'm going to get them a new tank on Friday. But before then I have a few questions.
Is it best to get a 5 gallon with two dividers, or a 10 gallon with three dividers? Each Betta would get either 2.5 gallons or 3.3 gallons to himself. Oh and if I got the 10 gallon with three, that would mean another fish! Even though I don't really deserve it right now..
Anyways, if you have dividers do you need a heater for each division? Or one for the whole tank? Also, what is the best heater to get? Same question for the filter..
And about how much does it cost to get everything? I'm ready to spend whatever it takes, I'm just looking for a number so I know kind of what to expect.
I think that's it for right now, but if you have any other tank shopping and setup advice that would be appreciated!
