You gotta love the first ones :) They jump-start the addiction (yes, it is an addiction!).
Yes - I know. Thanks though! Any name ideas? Something fit for a king, as he's a king betta. :p What's up with these bubblenests? Just making sure, it's a good thing right?

Yes, it definitely a good thing. It's their natural mating instinct (they mate, then place the eggs in the nest). They make them when they are healthy and secure.

Yes bubblenests are good. It means he's happy and he's ready for mating. However, do NOT think about getting him a lady freind. Betta's are agressive towards their own species regardless of gender. Only experienced breeders can do this.
I also read that you bought a suction cup leaf. If it's this one I would advise you to remove it for your fish's safety.

I don't plan on breeding, no girlfriend for him.

And THANK YOU! That's the one that I had. Phew. Good thing it was only in there for an hour.

Get some pics up! I would loveto see your betta! ^_^ and Welcome to the forums, you seem very well set up. The only thing you need to catch up on is the process of cycling a tank (Nothing difficult to undrstand). Sorry, but I don't know how much live food they should be eating either =( I'd say its a touch and go situation? The general rule is to feed them (slowl) what they can handle ina minute or two. Take into consideration that its stumich is only about the size of its eye! =)

I think your lil' betta found an awesome owner! =)

Side Note: Also, make sure to change a percentage of the water out every few days (This prevents harmfull chemicals from building up in the tank) You should learn about this while reading about cycling though =)
