I acquired a baby betta from PetCo 2 days ago.
He is rather active and appears to be in good health with the exception of what looks like, from the research I've been doing, stress spots, though they're very small and condensed in lines--can't get a picture of him because he keeps moving!
I have done a lot of research and it appears that brine shrimp eggs/bloodworms are best to feed babies (my betta would not eat crushed pellets when I tried, even though he was clearly very interested in eating). My store only had bloodworms, and when I gave them to my baby for the first time, he gulped down 3 with no problem.
I'm wondering how many I should give him and how often; everything online is telling me different stuff and I'm very confused. I really want to take care of him absolutely the best I can. I would be utterly heartbroken if he died.
Other notes: betta is about 3/4 an inch long, I have a 1 gal tank with a live plant, changing 1/2 water daily until he grows up (if this is wrong, please let me know), filtering and dechlorinating the water, making sure the water is warm enough for him!
Thank you so much for any and all help.
