I currently have i male betta in a 1 gallon fish bowl. i put about 1 1/2 inches of natural gravel at the bottom. the temp is usually around 74 degrees. i used to keep him on a shelf in my computer room, but wanted to bring him into the kitchen so i could see him more. He is in my kitchen window now. Is this bad for him?
Should i take out the gravel?
How do i measure amonia levels?
Can i use regular ph test strips on his water?
Is 6.8 the ideal ph?
Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is "cycling"?
plants or no plants? if yes, what kind?
I seem to have a brown alge problem no matter where his bowl is. How do i remedy this?
What is best, spring water or declorinated tap water?
I also want to get a ten gallon kit and put some female bettas in it. i feel so bad for the ones i see in the store. how many can live happily in a ten gallon tank?
Is the filter that comes with the ten gallon kits too much for the bettas?
