Hello everyone, I feel as if I am over reacting mainly because I have poured through alot of posts on this forum and feel as if I am one of those people who self diagnoses every week because they are constantly on Web MD or something. Here is my Betta, his name is Atlas. He is a king betta and I got him 2 weeks ago at Petco. He is very reclusive and spends the majority of his time hiding under rocks. He has a few "forts" around the tank and I rarely get to see him. He is in a 60 gallon tank with Neon, Black, and Rio Di Genaro (probably spelt wrong) Tetras. I have yet to see him flare and he spits up his food most of the time when I feed them all. Being my first betta I simply want to give him the best run possible along with a good experience for myself. Here are some pictures : )
