He'll probably get more color as he gets healthier and more settled in. 79 is a great temp for his tank to be at.
What kind of setup do you have planned for him? Like plants, tank size, filter, foods?
He's a pretty boy. He looks surprisingly well for being in a cup for so long already.
I know, I can't wait to see how he looks once he's used to everything! I JUST watched him take his first little swim out of the corner he had been hovering at in his QT tank! He's soooo cute.... <3
Once he's out of QT I have a ten gallon tank for him with rocks from a nearby creek that gave my thumbs blisters I cleaned them so much, two mugs for hidey holes (One is with him in his QT tank) , and a silk plant (Also in his QT tank). No live plants are planned, filter is going to be a Tom Aquarium Mini Internal, heater is going to be an Elite 50 watt. I'm also getting a Marina thermometer and airline tubing so that I can make a siphon, as well as API master test kit and Seachem prime.
Right now I'm using API Stress coat as water conditioner, New life spectrum betta pellets to give to him when he starts settling in, and AQ and Epsom salt just in case he needs them. (If anyone thinks he might, please say so, Watson's my first, and I've done a lot of research but I don't know everything.
in pretty good shape, the LPS doesn't have a lot of bettas, or any fish, so maybe that means they got more care because of the smaller amount?
awwes pretty cambodian crowntail :) he's pretty and I like how long his rays are!!!!
Ahhhhh, a combodian, that's his coloring....Haha, I had to pull up the betta tails and colors thread to see what you were talking about! Haha...He is VERY pretty, I can't wait to see what he ends up looking like!
CT bettas rule
! very handsome boy!
Haha, I had originally decided that I was going to do a VT, but Watson came along and smashed that idea!
Thank you! I'll have to tell him lots of people think he's pretty!
