Hello everyone, I just got a betta for my son for his birthday. His name is "Duke" and he is a very pretty boy. At any rate, I bought him with a one gallon tank setup to put him in before doing my research here. He has been in there for only a couple days and have been doing water changes everyday (30-40%). His ammonia readings are very high. Yesterday, I picked up a 10 gallon tank with stand that I want to put him in. This tank came with everything I need, but the items are quite old and I was considering pitching some of it (the filter and airpump especially). I want to get Duke into a better environment as quickly as possible and in order to do that, I am planning on going out tonight for a heater and new filter for the 10 gallon tank I bought. I plan on cleaning it out and getting it set up this weekend so I can get him out of where he is. I am curious as to what kind of HOB filter you would recommend for the tank that would be quiet for the people and Duke (I know Bettas like relatively calm warm water). Just so you are aware, I recently upgraded my 20 gallon long tank to a 29 gallon that is taller that I keep some assorted tropical fish in my dining room, (3 Gold Barbs, 3 neon tetras, 2 that I can't remember the name of (they are clear with gold and black stripes on their fins), 1 red serpea tetra, and 1 dalmation molly) (ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates <20) so I have some experience keeping fish as well as access to an established tank. I purchased a new Whisper 3i filter that I have currently in my 29 gallon tank that I am hoping to "seed" both his current home and new home once I get it setup. I would like to do the same with the filter I purchase for the 10 gallon setup for him. Duke's ammonia levels are way too high, which is why I have been changing his water everyday using water from my established tank. I know about the Nitrogen cycle and this too shall pass, but the fish is suffering and I want to minimize the stress on him. I plan on getting some Prime tonight as I have been using stress coat + (at the advice on the board) so I can get both his ammonia and nitrites down between his daily water changes. I would love to put him into my present tank for a bit until I can seed his new tank, but I know Bettas are more solitary creatures, and I don't want to stress him any further. So is there any way for me to move him to the bigger tank without stressing him or any of my other fish picking on him, or him picking on the others? (put him in a breeding net/cup maybe?) If that is not an option, is there anyway that I can minimize the time he is suffering in his current digs before I get his new home setup? Sorry this is long winded and I hope you can help. Thanks.
