My betta gets a few tiny round beads called “Betta micro floating betta pellet food.” twice a day. Usually he comes up & eats, but they will sink & he eats later.Okay, I’m reading this… and wow, I feel overwhelmed… but I can do it. But it says the old way to do it was to put in “hearty” fish…? What is a “hearty” fish. My kids don’t care what kind of fish it is, just so long as it swims.
The guppies get Aqueon Tropcal Flakes.
I loss a few minnows in my first 5 gal tank. They were with the 2 guppies. Most likely, the tank was not cycled. I followed instructions on the nitrifying bacteria container, but failed to test the water even though I had purchased the API kit.
The betta was put in a used tank that had a cycled filter & substate. He’s doing great, a pretty little boy.
