Hi, I'm totally new here, just got my betta last week kind of on impulse, but I don't want to leave him in the little .5 gallon (tiny, I know) tank I got with him. We don't have a good pet store nearby, so I'm making a trip as part of my birthday outing this coming Saturday to check out a couple of pet stores and hopefully come home with something good for him.
I don't have a really big budget for this, but I'm hoping to get a 5 gallon if I can, though I may have to settle for a 3 if it comes to that.
So what would you guys recommend for a starter? Apollo's pretty frisky even in his little tank, but I want to make sure he's got what he needs to be a happy fish. I've got the basics, pellets, bloodworms for a treat (he loooves them
), and water conditioner. I'd like to kinda get a list of things to check out and look for when I go to the stores.
