Thank you! So far I have been doing water changes using a gravel vacuum. My last one was 50% and I took 25% from one side and 25% from the other side. It seems to work well except both of them just want to attack the vacuum!! :)

awww so cute.If you don't cycle your tank i would do more water changes. Usually for 2.5-3 gall you need 1-50 and 1-100% water changes. Some people will even recommend 2x50 and 1-100% water changes a week. Since you have 2 of them in 5 gall ,it like you have 2.5 for each i would really recommend more water changes to prevent future problems:)

Yep! I'm working on cycling so I am doing 50% water changes two to three times a week. I do have some live plants in there (pothos pieces and a Marimo moss ball) and the tank was started with half of its gravel and water from established tanks so we're on our way! I was planning on doing only one 50% change a week once it's cycled, but do you think I should do two water changes because I have the two fish??

I bet he will! Mine was very pale when I brought him home, and I saw such a drastic change in under a month! Here's the tread showing the change I saw: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=118843



We have good taste in fish :)

It's funny, because before getting Krycek I'd never seen a betta that looked like him before!

You did a great job with yours, he looks amazing now compared to what he was when you got him. :)
