Hello everyone, I don't have my tank or Betta yet but I would like to know some things before I get him this weekened.
He will be in a 5.5 Gallon and it will have a heater and a filter (which I will baffle). I was wondering how often I should clean his tank and the best way to do so? I want to know because I am thinking of picking up a small gravel vaccum, if that would work in a tank this size.
Also is cleaning his tank 50% a week too little? I want him to be happy and healthy. I didn't plan to cycle the 5.5, I read that the smaller the tank the harder to cycle and I don't mind cleaning him more. I also plan on putting a Moss Ball in the tank with him, if that makes a difference to the amount of cleaning.
Thank you for the advice in advance!
