What do Betta eats
How big a tank I need?
Also, if we go for holiday which is around 5days to a week, how to make sure it won't die?
As long you have a good filtration system you don't need to worry about it.
Just remember to keep the beneficial bacteria alive, no need to keep washing your bio medias just wash the padding.
As Ammonia levels rise, another good bacteria grows that converts Ammonia to Nitrite. Although Nitrite is not as toxic as Ammonia, it is still harmful to fish. As Nitrite levels rise, another good bacteria grows that converts Nitrite to Nitrate. This process is called aquarium cycling or the aquarium nitrogen cycle.
I got 3 ranchus and 2 orandas, not the good quality type. All chosen by my young child, it all started with my child wanting to have an aquarium. But now i am more attached to the hobby than my child. Hahahaha
