We have decided to get a betta for our 5 year old. Don't have a fish yet - my daughter will pick one on her BD.
I did some research though and just ordered the 3G Eclipse Tank, Hydor Theo 25W heater, API Matster Test Kit, thermometer, some silk plants, Tetra betta pellets and bloodworms, and Tetra AquaSafe watre conditioner
I did search this forum and got loads of valuable info, so thanks everyone!
I still have some questions about this tank:
1. From what I understand the biowheel suppose to make cycling much easier. Is that correct? Does it also allow to have fewer water changes?
2. What would be recommended water changes schedule for this tank?
3. I hear a lot about vacuuming. I am assuming this is done with the use of a siphon. Any good suggestions for this?
4. Is it ok to buy 1-2 nerita snails for this size of a tank?
Also any other info, recommendations, etc., regarding this tank will be really appreciated!
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!
