yes, i have 2 apple snails, as far as the lighting goes, i looked at the hood/cover where the light is and it doesn't give me any info. i bought the package at walmart that gave you everything you needed to start up an aquarium.
now, i am assuming that i should take out the filter and bubble stone (which are both quite powerful) and just get a smaller air stone? and also leave the filter out and do more weekly water changes? i read that betas don't like the water disturbance from the filter.
he is a beautiful fish, so colorful. by the way, after i bought the tank and set it up i felt really bad contributing to walmarts fish department. they do such a crappy job at taking care of the fish. but i was there shopping on saturday night and had to venture into the pet aisles for cat litter and all the fish tanks are empty, not even running and all the betas are gone too. which is probably a good thing, but it just makes me wonder what happend to all those poor fish.
