Hi! I’m nearing the end of my nitrogen cycle and looking to add a male betta in the next week or two. I have a 6 gallon Fluval Edge tank. I am prepared to lower the water level if necessary for him to breathe better. I’ve been doing so much research as this is my first tank. My main source of information STRONGLY suggested an air stone for my planted tank. but I’m wondering how Bettas do with an air stone? Does this allow them to breathe from the water more, or are they required to breathe from the surface? Also, I’ve read some things about the betta having fun in the bubbles and whatnot but that seems to be an individual case basis... anyone with experience for this?
