I finally got my betta fish! He is a crowntail. :D I got him yesterday so I still haven't thought of a name, but I want to name him based off of his personality.
First of all, I just wanted to give a shoutout to user Teeneythebetta for all of her help, and I also want to thank anyone else who has answered my questions and helped me out. :)
My betta is really scared of me so I was hoping someone could give me tips on how to tame him.
I tried to give him the Omega One Pellets but they are so tiny so I don't think he saw them. But I think he ate them from the surface.
I fed him frozen bloodworms and he ate those. :)
I've noticed that he likes eating from the bottom of the tank more than the surface of the water.
I attached some pics of my betta and I just wanted to make sure if he looks healthy or not. It looks like he has a pale belly sticking out so I think he might be bloated? And it looks like he has a white spot on the top of his head. He's active though.
I checked the ammonia and nitrate lvls with the API test kit and they were both at 0ppm.
The PH looks like it's at 7.6. Is that too high? I read that they are fine at 7.5
The plant in there is a Java Fern.
Sorry if some of the pics are blurry, my camera sucks sometimes.
