Rj L says:

These two act like morons, most of the tanks they build can not be sustained .

greydragon12345 says:

why would you put aloe vera in your tank it decreases the oxygen going into to your tank and if you used the betta water it doesn’t have clorine or cloramine in it it is safe to use right away

Nathan Stark says:

Ok… But why did they use Beta Water, then a dechlorinator? BetaWater (which is a complete rip-off) is already dechlorinated. It’s way cheaper and the same thing to just use dechloinator with tap water.

Not to mention a bunch of other information they left out that’s very important. If you are looking for a good guide of how to keep a Betta, please reference a few other videos.

biganimalsmallanimal123 says:

What company and model is that 4 gallon betta aquarium produced by?

Rosemary Hall says:

You guys are great! However, I’d love to talk to my Petco sales associate. However, I was there for an HOUR today and couldn’t get any help. There were maybe one or 2 associates on the floor and the rest at the registers. So we walked out without buying anything. Hope they made a lot of money today. Great video, guys. I’ll take your info and go to Underwater Depot.

ComeOnTary says:

nice , good job guys

Elijah Ward says:

the second kind of fish I had was a beta

Ryan Bancroft says:

Don’t listen to these guys …. misguiding people in the hobby and killing fish good job . This is not how you do it it’s much more difficult.

Flupple Wott says:

Don’t use the Betta water, it’s not worth the price because you will be spending multiple bottles a week doing water changes. Instead, use water purifying drops to almost instantly purify tap water. You can easily find them at Petco or any aquatics store. If you’ve got the time, you can also sit out water in a large bowl to dechlorinate, it usually takes 24 hours. Happy fish keeping!

Dillon Cookson says:

So the top animal abusers and the dickheads who put 13~ goldfish in a 5 gallon tank are giving advice? I don’t think so.

Jose Aguirre says:

wow great video, would you have any suggestions for me. I bought a barrel looking plastic container from Costco and would like to have it outside with some aquatic plants and fish but not sure if I need a substrate, most other videos just put the plant on top of a brick or rocks. Do I need the chemicals you mentioned in this video ?. I live in Los Angeles California. thank you.
