Hey, Mew! My betta was in a 3g tank for some time before I upgraded him. I know it's very common for Beta keepers to cup their fish for cleaning, but my experience is with other types of freshwater fish - so it never occurred to me to do things this way. I always did partial water changes on his tank, just like all of my other, larger tanks - leaving the fish in his home during cleaning. Is this something that you could maybe try? I'm sorry, I can't really help with any feeding issues. Just don't have the experience over my one little man! :)
It looks like you've gotten lots of thoughts from other members on this thread - a lot to consider! Just want to remind everyone to be respectful of the thoughts and opinions of others, and keep in mind that we all come from different situations, and do things in different ways. . . I love to see everyone sharing opinions and advice, just remember to keep it kind. We're all trying to help a fellow fish-keeper out! ^__^
