I am new to this whole betta fish thing. I hear they are easy to take care of... BUT I am obviously wrong... I bought a beautiful male from a store 3 days ago. he was healthy, swimming around, puffing at his reflection, etc. NOW he is DEAD. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM DOING WRONG!!! ):<
He is in a 3 gallon cylindrical tank with plastic plants, a heater & no filter. The water is set at 80 degrees. He has a hammock & like I said plastic plants & rocks. I was going to do a water change tonight (the third night he's been here, but now he's dead). I fed him once a day, but only as much as he would eat in 2 -3 minutes... I scooped the rest out. Can ANYONE please tell me what has happened to him? I just do not understand... ):
I love bettas they are SO beautiful & I love them... But I don't want them to keep dying! ):
Help me, please!!!!!
