I am thinking of getting a Betta, and am wondering whether the Fluval ChI tank is appropriate? Also wondering what other equipment I might need...
This would be my first Betta and the first time I keep fish on my own.
Thanks everyone.. hmm, that filter problem sounds worrying..
What about the Nano fish tank? I've found one that comes with a starter kit, with filter tray with filter wool, filter pump, and spray bar, and also a 50w heater. It is a 33L.
You can use a sponge filter to eliminate the issues with tearing fins. They work really well and are great for smaller tanks especially.
The kit sounds great. Sponge filters are really inexpensive, you just need an air pump, tubing, and the sponge. I would buy the kit and the sponge filter. That way you can have a backup if you need it.
Also be careful with decorations. Their fins can tear really easy on edges. So silk plants are preferable to plastic, and no decorations with sharp edges.
