Last weekend my fiancé got me a Betta. He was at the pet store and felt bad for the little guys and asked the lady about them and decided to get me one for a surprise. He asked the lady which Betta has been here the longest, so he could get him into a nicer home. I named him Parkey!!! I got his tank ready and got him into it the next morning. I really want to make sure he has a good environment and learn as much as I can about them, as I am already trying! I had a Betta when I was a child that my dad and I took care of that was beautiful, but I would like to learn more and possibly make taking care of this little guy a hobby. He seems to be fine in his tank now, but I would appreciate some tips and guidance about Betta’s in general. I think Parkey is a male, but I would appreciate help deciphering that as well. From what I read and my Betta fish as a child, I understand these fish usually will live alone, especially males, but would love to know if they can have any other form of company like another species of fish or the possibilities of two females living together? I was wondering about plants and also making sure my water was adequate in his tank. They had us buy a Betta heater, and a filter came with the semi-small tank. Wondering what temperature is good. what 3 gallons) I used the top fin water clarifying drops but the directions sure seemed like it needed a lot! It said 24 drops per gallon. Sorry for the long post but any tips and help appreciated !
