    Hello. I may have asked you this before but I don't remember....But if I have a 5 gallon filtered tank with a single betta, even if I just set up a brand new tank and equipment, I only have to do one weekly PWC and the cycle will take care of itself, right?

    So I have been reading a lot of articles about proper temps for a betta and almost every one is different lol. But as an example: Is the page that says a betta's water temperature should be between 72 and 82 with an average of 76-78 used the correct article while the one that says a betta's water should be 78-80 and they start getting lethargic at 75 incorrect?

    Lol okay thank you for answering all of my questions. Sorry about my nit-pickyness. I am very particular when it comes to my knowledge of betta keeping...I think i will set my heater at 78 which will allow it to drop to 76

    Oh okay. But in general 74F-75F is warm enough? I just want to know what will make a betta live the longest while still being warm enough to keep his immune response nice and healthy...

    So is it somewhat of a myth that 72 is too cold?

    Many people seem to choose to keep theirs around 80. Why the lower temperature?
