Alright so i have two male betta splendens, one white and pink named Jeffrey and the other red and navy and purple named Malcolm. I got them over my springbreak so about...ehh roughly april 7th or 8th. i got them at my local wal-mart and they looked terrible. i used to have an all red betta named ruby so ive always enjoyed betta fish. ruby was with me for a good 3 1/2 years. but he got sick and died, im guessing. but about that time we were getting ready to move so i hadnt had time to start up my obsession again.
but i was at wal-mart with my younger brother and my sister and we saw the fish becuase i work there for no pay taking care of whats there. there where about 20-30 bettas all looking sickly and miserable. but i only had money for two and a small divider tank. so thats what i got, and the obbsession was reborn. well after i had gotten home i got them all together (so i thought) and i mean this divider tank was horrible. it wasnt even a gallon the whole thing combine and it had a hard plastic plant that they could hurt themself on and it was just horrible. well that night i went to my best friends house and i spent 6 1/2 hours on her laptop reserching the fourums on this website
i though i had it all figure out, but i couldnt ask questions for i didnt have an account and i didnt see the random answer question was obvious (i put too much though in it)
so now im a memeber and im 14 lol and i need help. becuase my parents said this is my project.
but i went out and i bought two 1 gallon critter carriers and that's what theyre in. theres a squishy annenome in there becuase i noticed they like to hide. along with one silk plant in each and a shell i found in florida (all in each) they have black&& white gravel and thermometers and the tempature is relitivly low right now only about 75ish and i only have on light. i havent gotten anymoney to buy another light and heaters but they seem to be doing just fine.
i feed them at 6am everymorning, the same thinga very little pinch (not even a pinch really) ofthis betta food i picked up with brine shrimp in it. and on mondays and fridays at 9:00 pm i feed them 3 or 4 blood worms.
am i doing enough or do i need to do more?
they seem to be alright but im no expert. help? any help would really be appriciated. i love this website its so easy, and i have betta fever (: haha. thank so much though.
