Lol well you can always PM me if you want lol.
Aww! He must have been wishing he could get to it. Veggies are actually not that good for bettas. They are naturally insectivores in the wild and will only eat plant roots and such if they have to (like when kept in those horrid plant vases). Lol well ghost shrimp are only about 30 cents so if you get one and he eats it it's not a big expense haha. And Toby does that too, he rests on his big purple plant the lazy boy lol. Some bettas are more aggressive than others, it's a hit and miss!
Trust me, it is. I have 2 non adjustables in my closet right now in case of malfunction. Lol good thinking! Try wrapping a towel around the tank? I did that to Leo's QT tank on the trip back home from college and it kept him from freezing haha (that's in my experience though...not sure what others would do). Aw Finlay is a lucky little betta! It's all about learning and luckily bettas are hardy enough to survive (;
And always happy to help!!
