Hi All!

After thinking about it for some time i have decided to set up and purchase my first Betta. I have got a 21liter or 6 gallon tank and set up with the heater and filter and my first thought was do they need a bubble machine like i have in my main tropical tanks?> i tried reading various forums but none had any suggestions.

Next up I have read so many different opinions on tank mates. Im happy to just have the one guy in the tank but some people have said they like to have placid tank mates. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on yes or no and if so possible tank mates?>

I think thats my two big questions! trying to get all my research done before i go any furthur!
