Two New Bettas!!

Hey everyone,

Im new to this forum but not new to bettas, my dad has always had bettas and I have always had a 40 Gallon tank of more than 50 guppies and others, but recently our roles have switched :)
He now has my tank and i now i two new bettas i got today.
I dont have space for anything bigger than a 3L tank but each betta has its own tank with a marina digital thermometer, Fluval compact heater 25W, black floor pebbles and just for now 1 leafy fake plant, i gotta stop by a shop to grab live plants. Oh and each has its own overhead light.

Just wanna hear what you all think of my sorta starter tanks!! :D

Well, it's good that you are heating the tanks because they need water between 76 and 80. A thermometer is also very important, you don't want to boil them. But the tank sizes are MUCH too small. You need at least 7.57 liters (2 gallon) per fish. I you really REALLY can't, at least get them a little more than 1 gallon. Bettas need to have space to swim and stretch (imagine being stuck all your life in something just big enough to take a couple of steps each way....
Also important, but you probably already have it is water conditioner to treat the tap water for the tanks.

Good luck with your new fishies!!!!

Everything sounds great! To be on the safe side, though, I'd also grab a normal thermometer (the glass ones that go inside the tank, not the outside strips), to double check the digital one. Sometimes they go a bit wacky. :)
