Talking Patchy's new home

hi everyone, i was given a BEAUTIFUL boy betta yesterday. who is settling in fantastically! i am setting up a 10 gallon for him that he will be super happy in. i am planting it just for him and currently growing out floaters in my other betta's 10 gallon tank. i was thinking about dividing paco's (my other betta) tank but i wouldn't want someone taking half my home to give to a stranger.... so he gets his own house. this is patchy. he is a beautiful marble betta. he is very shy, and i am having a hard time getting him to eat but i am sure with a little more time he will be fine. paco was like that also. this was the bubble nest that i woke up to this morning. he has shown no signs of stress or anything. so that is super awesome. his fins have been flowing and beautiful and he has been curious to what is going on around him. though very shy about it. showing great personality and character. looking forward to seeing how he is moving forward. thanks again sjones for patchy. he will be well taken care of

Good idea lol. I have java fern (and it's 238443564876 sprouts from it) some sort of tall sword, anubias, and a bunch of wisteria I think lol. And moss, moss balls, etc :) Love live plants!
