Betta Fish Tank Set Up, How To Set Up A Betta Fish Tank

How to set up a betta fish tank For betta fish tank set up you will need a 2 1/2 gallon tank minimum, water conditioner, bacteria supliment, and a filter. Possible extras you will need are aquarium salt and a heater. ***A few important things I failed to mention in my video*** Always try to cycle your tank before adding your new fish. Here is a link to my video about cycling your tank https://youtu.be/O61NAy6SKAE If you do add your betta fish before your tank is established (cycled) you will need to do more frequent water changes on your tank. 10 to 15% at least once a week to help keep ammonia levels at 0. Ammonia is toxic to fish and can make your betta fish sick. Cycling a tank usually takes between 6-8 weeks. Also do not set up your betta fish tank near any windows or in the line of direct sunlight, this can cause severe temperature fluctuations in your betta's tank and can also cause major problems with algae growth. If you do not have a heater on your fish tank and you find there is ever more than a 2-3 degree temperature fluctuation, you should add a heater to keep the temperature more stable for your betta fish.

Sorry for being so abrasive with the first comment.  I appreciated your message back and am glad that you teaching people about nitrogen cycles too.  I just didn't want someone stumbling across the video and thinking this was everything there is to getting a new Betta.  You rock :).

+RapIsLife09 Don't sweat it, we all love animals and want them to be cared for properly. I want to try to get as much helpful information out as I possibly can, and I don't want to miss anything. It seems the more videos I make, the more videos I feel like I need to make to elaborate on things.

hi, where did you find an undergravel filter to fit that tank?

Petsmart had one that you can customize up to 10 gallons, it looks like they changed it a bit from when I bought it, but here is a link http://www.petsmart.com/fish/supplies/filters-and-filter-media/filters/top-fin-undergravel-filter-16958.html. You could also always make a sponge filter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrLYm-ZDGLw

Petco carries them, it's hit or miss though when they have them.
