I don't take failure well. Dx
I really wanna get back with this species if I can find more, going to test my water today, then head to the fish store. I don't know if the tests will show anything since I changed 40% yesterday. :s Betta have no signs of anything.
I will try to find a decent brand of sinking pellet (can't do NLS, it's crazy priced at the LFS).. I never did see him eating. :/ I doubt he died of loneliness either, he seemed quite unstressed and fine on his own, honestly..
Would it be better to do maybe 2 20% water changes a week instead of 1 40% change? I could vacuum the hornwort more often, and things wouldn't build up as much.
If they have endlers I may pick up 3 males, I think they're hardier and could help "establish" the tank better, but if it's fully cycled I don't see what else that could mean Dx
They also have julii cory at the LFS, I may go for that species in the end >_<
That photo was taken 2 days ago, and he was still zipping around like crazy. Yesterday he didn't swim away from the gravel vacc, and seemed less active, but I didn't think that much of it. I'm going to remove my blame from Reuben though, he probably just nibbled the cory's tail after he died..
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
