Laura's home is located in Hollywood, California. Today, Laura called about cleaning her Betta fish tank. A small 3-gallon tank that has a dancing Betta named James.
This post shows the eighteen steps to clean James (Betta) aquarium tank.
Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows that the water from the fish tank that needs to be replaced.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows James being removed from his home. It's not like James jump into the clear glass. So I used a clear glass the Mrs. H. kitchen cabinet and yes the glass went into the dishwasher for cleaning. Fig.5 shows the glass method is the best way not to traumatize any fish, they stay in their water and after the aquarium is clean then James and the old water will go into the clean tank. This is a tried and true method.
