Nice setup you have there reminds me of my own. That first picture didn't do him justice. I've never seen a Betta with that brilliant of a green color. I love the pet keeper tanks. Easy to maintain and clean. I'm using them to house my boys at the moment.

How do you clean those pet keepers?

Can I use the siphon water to change the water with out taking out my betta? I know doing this way, could not change the water at 100%, is this safe?

Any other advice?

Thanks in advance...

I actually use a coffee mug to do my 50% water change on Wednesday nights. I use a gallon jug that was cleaned with just hot water to refill. Make sure you condition the water the you are adding. Then on Sunday nights I do a 100% change. On the 100% change I gently dump the substrate into a strainer and give it a quick rinse. Put the rocks back in the tank, add conditioner, and refill it. Add the heater back and swirl the water with it. Then add the fish back in. Also I bought a new mug and strainer that has never been washed with anything other than a bath in hot water when I first got it.
