Asking the pros here, does goldfishes really need lots of space? I have a 3ft tank, five goldfishes inside, each around 1 inch plus, is it overcrowded?

My son wants to keep Betta.
What are the essential things I need to keep Betta.
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?

Really depend on the keeper, 1ft tank w/ a filter will be nice for a betta any granules fish food will do.

My Betta i keep it in a CNY SU830 container w/ no air pump and filter.

Betta is a hardy fish they can handle tough environment no food for them for a few days won't kill them maybe just overfed them do a water change before your trip.

I have used tank, tap and also water left overnight. See the ammonia level spike up is stressful.

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.

Currently i doing weekly water change of 70% to 80%, is the frequency ok?

Sent from 波多野结衣 using GAGT

That's a lot. 50% should be max. You don't want to shock the fishes too much and changing that much water is a lot of environmental change for the fishes.

1 inch is still ok but they will grow very fast and big esp oranda goldfish.
for them to strive, 30L per fish.

Hmmm, probably will get another tank and split if they grow too big. Hahahah. More excuses to buy another tank.

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
