Skittle update

Well, Skittle, my little rainbow VT, is finally adjusting to his new home after being rescued from Walmart. They treated him so badly there! Even the check-out lady was horrible! She grabbed the bowl, practically threw it over the scanner and tossed it into the bag. I was so worried I took him back out and didn't set him down till I got home! It seemed to spook him too.
He's very calm, sometimes going down to the aquarium rocks to look around, and even rolls them over. He is so cute!!!!!!!! I think I've gotten the Betta Bug! I can't help but want more!!

He sounds adorable! I heard you have him in a 1/5? Get a bigger tank, divide it, get another betta!

Edit: after more research of course.

Yeah, I'm hoping to get a 2 or 3 gallon old tank from my boyfriend, maybe with a filter included! I'm currently cleaning his tank... I woke up this morning with it being cloudy- bleh! So I put him in a clear large jar, and went for a 50% water change. He just stared at the tank trying to get back!

it got cloudy?? you should clean that small of a tank every 2-3 days.

WARNING: almost every newbie gets the "tank talk"

Yea, I know, I've been cleaning it regularly.

Great! I hope you can get a bigger, heated, and filtered tank for him! So you don't have to do so much work, and he can be very healthy!

Goodluck!!
