I'm another new Betta fish owner. So far I have a halfmoon betta (my picture taken with my phone :/) I think so far so good. Though I have two different books about bettas and taking care of them, I still have some questions and want to make sure my little guy's life is serene as possible. Any advice is welcomed!
1.I gave him his first water change and well wow! I couldn't stop sneezing and my eyes watered like crazy, has anyone else experienced this? It has three days since I brought him home, and I have a lot of allergies. Wondering if its me or if its common. Other then that it has been going swell.
2.He is fed two times a day, 8 am and 8 pm. Betta flakes with brine shrimp (one shrimp and five small flakes round the size of the shrimp) and twice a week he gets freeze dried blood worms ( 2-3). I'm pretty sure that is a good diet, but I'm afraid of over feeding him!
3. He lives in a 1 gallon round glass bowl with a mini heater so his water stays around 80 degrees F. And I plan on changing his water twice a week. His bowl without the heater falls to 70 degrees F and its not even winter yet! ( His bowl is on my desk near my bed and a window. No he is not exposed to direct sunlight)
