    I dont know much about bettas but I have a 5.5 gallon empty I just need a filter and a heater which I can get. I was looking on aquabid and saw this guy I was is awe hes so colorful

    My question is what is the best kind to get? im clueless.

    Heres the ad:

    I would get whatever one you like :)

    The longer the finnage, the more work to keep them healthy but still fun fish.

    Plakats are shorter fins and also fun. Walking through a pet store to purchase one, usually ends up with one picking you as their owner instead of you picking them :)

    Good Luck! Sounds like a fun new adventure for you!

    Its up to you what fin type you want to get! I've have all of them except Double Tail. I still haven't found that perfect HMDT yet....

    Some of my boys:

    Gambit, HM:


    Chisaii, CTPK


    Ryuu, King


    Katsu Kaida, Delta


    Chi, HMPK


    I love lots of fins, but the short finned bettas tend to be much more spunky X3

    Some like to play in the bubbles, but no, as long as you've got a filter.

    You could throw the filter media in one of your cycled tanks to get it seeded. I like to keep my filters stuffed with foam so I can use them when I need them.....like when I see a pretty betta that I need to buy. Of course, I also have a spare tank, heater, and multiple filters of all sizes too...

    Can I use any silk plants or do the have to be specifically for aquarium use.

    I bought flowers from Dollar Tree, and used them in my 20 long. I picked white ones, so I didn't have to worry about them leaching or anything. WalMart has 1, 3 and 5 packs of plants in their fish section that I ended up with a bunch of some how, so its mostly though LOL
