My son wanted to get a Betta and after waiting a few months my wife and I decided to get him started.
We bought him a 3 gallon (360 degree viewing tank) that came with air pump and an undergravel filter system. He also has a 50W heater and some gravel in the bottom. We have cleaned everything, setup the tank and have it merrily bubbling along.
Now after some research I've read that undergravel systems may not be all they are cracked up to be and I'm worried my son's fish may not survive because of this.
Should I buy him a real filter or try our luck with it's current setup?
The water has been treated with Splended Betta complete water conditioner and we have test kits for PH and Ammonia, are we missing anything else?
Thanks for all suggestions and help!
