I bought a Betta in January (actually, I got one in December, but he wouldn't eat, so the store-owner took him back). I have him in a small tank (probably 1/2 gallon) with some rocks and a heater. I want to move him to our 10-gallon tank (it's currently not set up), and I was wondering what all I need to get...
I have him on a diet of frozen bloodworms--is that sufficiently balanced, or should I be feeding more? He actually won't eat the pellets I bought--not for me, anyway. Mom can somehow get him to eat some Betta flakes, but he'll only eat bloodworms for me.
We were also thinking of getting a few tropical fish to stick with him in the 10-gallon tank. Is that a wise idea, and if so, what is a good choice? I was thinking neon tetra because they are small and non-aggressive. I also wondered about a Flaming Fox Catfish or a snail...is that okay, and which is better?
Any help would be greatly appreciated; my goal is to keep this fish alive for at least a year! All my others died within weeks.
