I finally got my boy!

Im so excited. He's a really pretty one. I haven't thought of a name yet, I was thinking Azul, which is blue in spanish!

I turned the filter off for now so he can adjust without the noise. I may or may not turn it back on later.

This morning the water is cloudy, before I even added him, or got him. It's been cloudy all day, does anyone know why?

Anyway, here he is! He's adjusting well :)
What kind of Betta is he? Anyone know? I'm not good at that :P

He's really pretty! Did you rinse your gravel and decor really well? How long ago did you fill the tank?

Yes and yes. I filled the tank two days ago, and added the conditioner yesterday because I wasn't sure on how much to add (but I got that question answered on another thread here) And thank you, I love his color :)

Yes, I love the dark blue with little hints of turquoise.


Hmm I don't know what could be causing your water to be cloudy. First I thought maybe dust from the gravel, but if you rinsed it well then I'm not sure. Sometimes when I fill up a container with warm water, the water looks cloudy for a little while, but it usually clears up pretty quickly, so I doubt that's what's going on if you've had it filled for two days. Sometimes a filtered tank will cloud up due to bacterial bloom as the tank cycles, but I can't imagine that would be happening so soon. Sorry, maybe someone else can weigh in.

Yeah, I'll see how it is tomorrow morning. Thanks :)

Thank you! He still remains unnamed, but i'm like 85% sure i'm going to name him Azul.

By the way, I forgot how much Betta's can have a personality! I have a feisty little guy, but he seems a bit shy. Probably because he's getting used to his new surroundings- better than the filthy cup he lived in. He seems really happy though, which makes me happy! I keep trying to turn the filter on, but he seems to kind of get scared by it, he swims around really fast and goes in his cave. Maybe he'll go filterless.

He is so pretty! I believe if I get another betta I will get a blue betta.
I have run out of room though...
Have you tried baffling the filter? The current may be too strong without baffling it.

What's baffling mean? Sorry this is actually my first filter, my Betta I had a few years ago didn't have a filter, so I don't know what that is.
