O.K. I had my four boys in seperate bowls. I have well water. They were treated for various ailiments, and are now all healthy! I bought Beauty a mini-Bow 5. I have a filter in it, no pump. He is doing great! I put Blue Boy and Uno ( my first Betta!) in a ten gallon, all decorated, with a filter, and a divider. They look great too. Flame is still in a bowl. He looks wonderful! SO - questions:
Do I need a pump or air stone in each one? I thought they didn't like moving water? If I do a partial water change, do I siphon it out of the bottom or top? How often should I totally remove them, and clean everything? They have been doing great in the well water. I added a little aquariam salt, and conditioner.
Alos - there is one small space in the divider they can see one another - every now and then, they have a little stand off. Is this harmful as long as they are still eating? I had a divider that was a screen, and they could see each other so well, they fought all day and wouldn't eat. I took the screen out, and replaced it with a solid 'placemat' from walmart with fern leaves on it! Looks great! I move the filter from one side to the other, but I don't run it all the time. I don't run the filter all the time in the 5 gallon bow either. Should I run it all the time? I know - lots of questions! thank you all!
