So far it will be filtered and heated and hopefully will be setup starting today. Watch this spot for updates. Since I will be getting a store bought one I believe I will start off with room temperature and slowly bring the temp. up to 78 degrees to not shock him/her, sound good? What are some easy to find small plants that betta's would like, easy to find is a key word since I can't order any from the internet, I'm thinking crypts, maybe try combamba?
