View Full Version : Couple more decos for my new betta

11-23-2015, 07:23 PM
This is my new, male crown tail betta, Morty. First fish since I was a kid. Bought him on a whim while I was getting a new hide for my corn snake. Very happy so far :3

Is there filtration on this little tank?

Sort of? It has an undergravel filter and a small air pump.

I see.

Here's a very good write up on proper betta care, maybe you've seen it already: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Properly-Care-for-a-Betta-Fish/

IMO, 5 gallons is the minimal for keeping one of these guys happy and healthy

That link is great, thank you! I admit I bought him on a whim, and so have some more shopping to do ASAP. A 5gallon is actually exactly what I'm looking at for an upgrade tank. I already hate the one I got. The light is awful and it really is just to small.

Anywho, thank you so much for the link and advice :3

You are very welcome....with a little research and a bit of shopping, I'm betting you provide him a wonderful home soon. :22:

Be sure to read as many of the "stickies" in the beginners section as you can, especially this one: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aquariumforum/showthread.php?t=36492
