I am a proud owner of a betta I named Mr. Betty!
Unfortunately I listened to the a******* at the pet store and the guy told me his betta fish lived in a corona beer bottle at home. After reading all this info I'm now worried that my fish is going to die soon :( All it is living in right now is a small bowl and I bought conditioner for the water to make it safe.
I'm hoping to get a proper tank, heating system and filter ASAP but will my fish survive for the next couple days if I keep feeding it etc ? I have a desk lamp over it and (don't laugh) an electric heating pad underneath the bowl cause I'm afraid the water is too cold. No idea if it's helping but I really don't want Mr Betty to die!
So bottom line, can my fish toughen it out for a day or two longer before I get him in a proper home?
