They are indeed seperate, my hospital tank or at least it was going to be is now a double of my other tank lol well almost we had most the parts just the odd bit we didn't.rae64 said:They look great! Beautiful bettas!
Are they in the same tank? If so, the need to be separated ASAP. Females are just as aggressive as males, if not more so. They will rip eachother to pieces!
Ahhh the tanks are exactly the same as I bought 1 as a hospital tank and fell in love with Colin the betta, so bought another as a hospital as they were on sale. They turned out to be a good deal as it's a package of tank, heater, filter, nasty fake plant and ickkle light (which I'm going to change once I get paid) the back ground thingy has all the set up instructions on the back but I thought they were an ok background as the tanks are against tiles and I don't like how the tiles look through the tanks.rae64 said:Perfect Just making sure, seeing as the background and heater looked the same in both pics... just made me suspicious!!
Eep! If the currency calculator I used is correct, that's $131 in USD. You can get a 29gal kit here for less than $100 at Petsmart and that includes filter, hood, heater, and some fish food and chemical samples (like water conditioner and Tetra Safe Start).Tigerfishy said:Lovely boy, and such a cutie girl!! Welcome Ferdinand and friends.
What tank deal was that? The only ones I can get here with full accessories are so expensive for the size (and the filters are pants!). e.g my 60l (15gal) was £85... If you convert that, I think we'll find it's much more expensive than the US 15 gal equivalents
Tigerfishy said:Yup, told you, it looks about right actually! Lucky it was an xmas present, but the point is, it's very expensive! My 3.7gal betta tanks were £27 each. It was just a plastic tank with filter and "free" useless Cycle!! Heater not included as sold as a goldfish tank, disgusting. The heater was also about £18 by the way! This is why whenever someone here says they got a bargain, I like to enquire more...
Next time I'm in US (hopefully in next few years!!) I'm coming back with a couple of Aquaclear HOBs, and maybe a stealth heater or 2 haha!
That's OK! Thanks very much for the info, will have a look, I'll google it or something!allibobs said:So sorry not to have replied sooner didnt spot your reply.
Do you have a qualitysave or home bargains store any wear near you? I know they are a chain of shops just not sure of their locations. In there at the momeny they have 3.7 gal tanks that are glass that come with a filter ( I was really dubious about the filter at first BUT this filter has saved my baby endlers from a huge ammonia spike) hood, plant (plastic), air pump (suprisingly quiet) & back ground for £10 and the ellite 25watt heater is perfect for this tank and you can get them for about £8 I have found the heaters in several garden centers with fish sections
