I'm glad to hear he's improving! He will appreciate the heater.

If you get a ten gallon use sand! I like it alot better. And i think i used like 25lbs on my 10 gallon and it gave me a 2 inch sandbed

My betta had a little white spot on his side with some fin damage once. I put a drop of bettafix in his tank and it cleared up over night. I don't know if this will help but I hope it does.

i appreciate it... im gonna buy a few things in the future to have on hand in case things come up so far the spot has gone away and faded into his scales and his head has turned to a lighter blue and his fins are healing from the fin rot... having the heater is a blessing bc i was keeping the house as warm as he needed to be lol now i can turn my heat down a bit and not have it so hot in here....

i started adding 1/4 tsp melafix to a half gal of water when i do his part water changes... his fins look so much better esp his tail when he fans them out... the melafix isnt affecting his behavior like it was before and hes seems less stressed wsince i added the heater and started the daily part water changes. im lookin forward to gettin him in at least a 5 gal tank... may start with a 5 gal since im new to aquarium setups and all that. then graduate him to a 10gal eventually. dont know how evryone else feels about their fish but hes definitely enriched my life since ive had him and ive learned alot about something i didnt know anything about...

No. You can only keep snails or shrimp in a 1 gallon.
