New Betta Fish and His Planted Tank Set Up

We got a new male koi Betta fish. We set up new planted tank it is a 2.5 gallon with a sponge filter. We added black sand as substrate and plants. The plants are Anubias, Amazon Sword and Marimo Moss balls. We added Flourish roots tabs to help feed the plants. We don't have a heater in the tank at the moment as the tank runs at a stable 78f without one. Tank Set Up. Flourish root tabs. http://amzn.to/2lCzWuZ Whisper Air Pump http://amzn.to/2kEMx2c Sponge filter. http://amzn.to/2kEKtak Marimo Moss balls. http://amzn.to/2kEWsox Let's connect!

How long did u cycle it?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
I didn't need to cycle as I always have cycled media form other tank. Cycling typically takes 3-5 weeks.

Can you give me some advice or care guide on Marino moss balls because I am planning to add live plants to my betta. Plus my betta have algae in the tank

Bonnie 1000 - 3 years ago
Lifewithpets Thank you! I will go buy some for my betta sometime.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
With the moss balls you don't have to do anything. Just add it to the tank and when you do a water change roll it around a little. That's all we do.

How long do you leave the tank with the plants before you add the betta?
Jordz Van 6299
Jordz Van 6299 - 3 years ago
Lifewithpets that's exactly what I was asking thanks ;)
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
I'm not fully sure what you're asking. I set up the tank and add the betta the same day or the next day. I only do that because I always use cycled media so the tank is fully cycled and safe to add the fish.

I have a koi betta, too! His name is Sushi, haha. We have two others; Firework and Norbert. Firework is a double tail Halfmoon, and Norbert is a dragon scale (hence the name; Norbert the dragon from Harry Potter :)). Love your tank, I'm looking into starting a planted tank!

I really like the way your channel is set up. I think you have earned a sub.
Also, I appreciate how interactive you are with the users.

P.S Is there more than 1 way for introducing the female betta to the community aquarium that I will get (15 gallons).
Benas Šulinskas
Benas Šulinskas - 4 years ago
Hi, I need your advice, I'm going to get a 15 gallon aquarium soon, right now I have 9 guppies and 1 pleco (For keeping my current aquarium clean) and I'm thinking of getting a female Betta too. The reason why I need your advice is because I want to know how to introduce the female Betta, and I need to know if there's any chance on introducing the female betta succesfully.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 4 years ago
As long as the female you get is not too aggressive there should be no problem. Although sometimes they don't do well with guppies if they're too colorful. The tank needs to be heavily planted for her to feel safe and happy. When you bring her home float her in the tank in a breeder box for a few hours. If she seems ok and not aggressive towards the other fish you should be able to release her. You will need to watch her for a few days to be sure she is ok with the other fish.

+Lifewithpets I got a mesh material around were the bubbles come out and it helps. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I see. Some movement is good as long as it's not too much. Would maybe a white fine air stone or normal air stone in the tube work?

I have 4 Bettas in a divided 25 gallon tank. I don't like the bubbles too big as it makes a bit of movement.

+Lifewithpets Same with me wanting to get a betta/bettas again, Its just constant streams of platy fry in my comunity tank and also we have building work done at the moment so its not the best time to be getting fish. I think im going to try adding 4/5 female bettas to my 15 gallon (with 2 platies and 5 neons). If they dont get along then im sure my lfs would take the bettas back, since they have taken back my previous platy fry
