    Betta Fish Care
    I am familiar with the concept of quarantine, but how long should you keep new fish/plants separate before adding them into the main tank? When should you quarantine for a long period, and when would it be okay to introduce them after a few days? I have a 1 gallon and 2.5 gallon tank that I...
