It makes me so sad to see them in those little cups sitting at the bottom in that nasty looking water :(
I must have gotten Prada when they first got him in, or something because all of the fishies looked bright active!

The pet store representatives know nothing at all. Hence the poor fishes stuck on cups.

Hi! I'm new to betta keeping, also. I got two crowntail males a couple of days ago. The forum has really helped me in my new experience! Just look for someone who has gold member or senior member underneath their username. They are probably the most experienced and they will help you with any questions. Happy betta keeping!

WRT his bubble nest...it seems to come in phases. My halfmoon made these lovely 3D thick bubble nests for a month or so after I got him, and then he seemed to lose interest for a good long while. I've noticed in this last month or so, he's been again building some really nice nests under the leaves of a plant in his tank. Maybe Prada will be back building nests in the future

No problem, ChocolateBetta.

Yeah I just looked at him now and he has built a small one! But I don't understand because he's having issues eating from getting constipated from stress and lower temps during the 6hr car ride home for Christmas... He hasn't eaten in a week! So why is he building nests?

(BTW he's being treated, so I'm just waiting to see if he improves)
