Aqueon Mini Bow fish tank + Betta fish update

I finally got my new fish tank home- so called "Aqueon Mini Bow Desktop Aquarium". Unfortunately, I got two bad surprises. The tank was on 1 gallon, when it was suppose to be a 2.5 gallon. It clearly said in the description that this tank was 2.5 gallon. Well, it wasnt. I think that 2.5 gallon is the minimun size for a Betta fish. They shouldnt live in a tank smaller than that. The second surprise I noticed when the tank came, was that the power plug contacts were American, and they cant be used in Swedish power plug stations. But I found a thing called "Voltage transformer/Converter" that will allow the power plug to match Swedish plug stations. So thats a solution, thank god! I have now ordered a new unopened and unused tank of the same design from America, so its on its way home now! I also show you a little update on my dearest betta fish Grimm! He still lives in his petbox, until the new tank is set-up and cycled. The water in the petbox is quite blurry and milky, and I think that is because I do several water changes a week, and I have poured down new conditioners to the water each time. I guess that the new water reacts to the conditioners and that why the water gets milky. The fish is not bothered by that though, since Bettas likes black water =)

Forget about plastic and get a glass tank, 2.5 or 5 gallon and set up a proper tank. Get the smallest whisper power filter, hang on back of tank, it will have an intake flow control which you can set on low so he doesn't get sucked in. A full hood is available for both size tanks. A mini heater is needed as well.

Betta fish 300 mine too! but he survived, he was in a community tank before but I removed him and put him in a 2.5 gallon tank just cause I'm afraid of him getting suck by the filter again.

Does any one notice that the front of the tank looks like a band word

The smallest I would put a Betta in is a 1.5 gallon tank, but it depends on the circumstances. My VT male was moved from the cup he was kept in at the grocery store to a 2.5 gallon tank only to act stressed out. When I moved him into his current 1.5 gallon tank made by Tetra, he perked right up. I've tried moving him back into the 2.5 gallon tanks, however, I continue to get the same results. Perhaps he prefers a smaller tank?

My first fish lived in a 1 gallon bowl, with two flowers and a small decoration, and lived a year and a half. (he was from walmart)

Im sure they can live a good life in 1 gallon, but i think its hard to really decorate the tank as a betta want in thst little space. You can hardly put down several plants without making the space alot snaller than it is. Thats why i think that a 2.5 gallon is minimum space, so you can put down some thriving plants and decorations for your fish :)

How annoying! But at least you have an emergency tank. I'm sure Grimm won't mind waiting a little bit longer for his permanent tank :) Good video!
AlexandrasPets
AlexandrasPets - 7 years ago
Hi! Yes it is XD but i guess that its a thing you will have to count with when you buy stuff over internet ;) but anyway, the new 2.5 gallon tank is on its way, and then i will set it up and start to cycle it for maybe a week before Grimm will be moved over. Abd lets hope that the water keeps better clean in the new tank! :D
