Hello all! I am new here :)
I have had bettas for many years in the past and it has been about 5 years since my last betta...I joined the forum to get updated health care information as I feel like I am relearning how to care for these little guys again.
This is my half moon betta, we have settled with the name Midnight:
He is currently in a 10 gallon with two plants. There is thermometer stuck to the side of the tank. I am getting him a water heater tomorrow. I have been suggested by others to get gravel etc, but I am a fan of the bare bottom tanks. Perhaps add a few more plants? Is there anything you would suggest?
More photos of him here on my site.
I bought him some betta pellets on the day we bought him (2 days ago) and he has refused to eat it and has not eaten anything for 2 days. Is this normal for a new betta? I have never had picky eating bettas in the past and it puzzles me. I am planning on grabbing some blood worms as well as betta flakes tomorrow when I pick up the heater.
Thank you for any input
