    Happy Fish Important things to note about keeping a fish in this type of environment:* Water needs to be changed at least twice a week and treated* Vase is approx 40 oz the pet store betta cup is 10 oz* In the winter, the fish needs to be moved to a heated tank (78-80 degrees)* Spring water is a safe option with 1/8 tsp of aquarium salt per 1 gallon* Fish needs to be fed 4-5 times a week, plant roots are not enough* Plant roots will take over, be sure the fish has room to swim or ditch the plant* Get a round fish net, squared fish nets don’t work well with this vase*This setup is a lot of work, you must be dedicated to make it workMy Betta’s name is Conrad and he is very happy in his new home. The picture shows the cup he was in before being moved to this larger environment. I gave the plant a week to get used to living in this vase before moving Conrad in, I wanted to make sure the plant could survive in this type of setup. I treated the tap water with Tetra’s BettaSafe drops to remove harmful stuff and make it safe for Conrad before adding him. I also purchased the Zoo Med Betta Bed Leaf Hammock that has amazing reviews both on Amazon and from pet stores alike and it fits, giving Conrad something fun to swim around, as well as something to lay on when he wants to rest.I keep a bottle of water nearby at the same room temperature; the water in the bottle has been treated with the right dose of BettaSafe so that I can add more water to the vase as needed without having to add more drops or wait for it to reach the right temperature.I decided to buy this item because of the negative reviews left by others who do not own this product and are basing their reviews on personal opinions. I love animals and would never do anything to harm them. I will keep updating my review on the status of Conrad.***Day 10 UPDATE***It has been a little over a week and Conrad (the Betta) is doing great. He is very active. I feed him Tetra BettaMin flakes twice a week (like the pet store said to do), usually on Monday and again on Thursday after cleaning the vase. I clean it using a turkey baser to suck up all the poo, roots and food left at the bottom; I do not replace the water because it doesn’t seem dirty other than the stuff at the bottom, but I pour more in from the prepared bottle I keep nearby. Throughout the day Conrad will bite and tug on the roots of the plants, I don’t think he needs the Hammock leaf because he often just swims to the top and tangles himself in the roots, using them as support while he rests. My only concern is the health of the plant, some of the leaves are dying and I am not sure if it is the plant possibly not being suited for this type of setup or if it is the BettaSafe drops that I put in the water. I have been cutting off the dead leaves as recommended by the office plant guru.***Day 21 UPDATE***21 days in, the fish is doing really well and is very active; he really likes the BettaMin Tropical Medley flakes I am feeding him. Although the pet store said they were feeding him only twice a week, I am not sure this was enough. I now feed him a small pinch Mon-Thur, he doesn’t get fed Fri-Sat when I am out of the office. On Mondays I still use the turkey baser to clean out the poop and stuff from the bottom. On day 18 I poured out half the water and replaced it with the bottle of water that I keep nearby at the same temp which is already treated with the BettaSafe drops. Doing this didn’t seem to cause stress to the fish since the water was already at the temp he is use to and was treated.As for the plant, it wasn’t doing too well and the leaves were all but dead, so I took it out and now just have the rocks on the top until I get another plant. Interesting thing I noticed is that these rocks float, so if they ever fall through the small holes they won’t drop to the bottom, instead they will just float near the top.***Day 36 UPDATE***I changed this to a four star review because really the water needs to be changed more frequently than what is said in the instructions. In fact the instructions don’t really say much about cleaning. I am changing his water once a week on Thursdays and added some marimo moss balls to also help cleanse the water. I took out the leaf hammock because it was getting in the way, but Conrad loves these moss balls. I heard some bettas ignore them, but he lays on them and roughs them up a little (see the picture, one of them is a little fuzzier than the others because he’s been playing with it). The yellow jelly balls are cool because they blend into the water and are super soft. I ordered both from Amazon and I believe the brand is called “Luffy”.This is the most time I have ever spent on a review for an item, I…
