I am glad you got a betta! do you need any tips on water changes, food , betta acclimation to the new water temperature when you changing him so you don't stress him out with drastic temp change. How big is his tank?

yeah! I'm kind of worried about the changing? Damon is SUPER skiddish like hopefully he grows out of it and gets used to me but as soon as I come by the tank he hides! so is there a good way to change him so he doesn't freak? oh and is 78 a good temperature?

temp is good!
And them hiding is normal, but they love it when you talk to them (some even play) Just start with talking softly to him a few times a day more so during feeding he will be ok :)
