Bettas don't generally even look at plants as a food source. It should be okay to put them in his tank, as long as they don't rip fins

It depends on the plant. Sometimes, my plants attach within only a few weeks.

Some of my anubias havent even in months.

While you wait, use either a dark colored thread or fishing line to tie it down.

ty, i can use them as a small homemade bush now. had to cut them off and 3 leaves. it was getting too crowded upstairs and he was having a hard time swimming through. i plan to get the exact same silk plant for the 2.5gal with same leaf cuttings for 2 extra bushes in the tank.

wheres the best place to get aquarium safe glue and does it melt plastic? i plan to find a material to make a setting foot to keep it grounded and using a section of the hard plastic trays that come in plastic model kits. i have have those in abundance. if AQ safe glue does melt that plastic then i can make a plant footing out of it also.

Quick question: New boy came from LFS so he won't eat pellets. Is it okay to feed him frozen bloodworms as his staple diet? He even spits out the smallest pellet I have.

Go for it, if youre willing, and he'll eat them, why not?

You could also wait until he's well and hungry after a few days and try again.

Yeah I should've clarified. They get big and will eat whatever will fit in its mouth.

Hey guys, I have those annoying microscopic white worms in my tank. I heard it's because the tank is healthy but it looks............gross.

I haven't added anything new to it except a green tea bag, could eggs have been in it (eww?)

How do I get rid of them...giant waterchange? It's my split 5 gal and I don't want to take it all apart after spending HOURS getting the divider settled in and decorating :/

Nah, I doubt it.

I think all youve gotta do is lessen what you feed your fish a bit (even up the no noms days to 2, rather than 1) and do a bit more frequent SIPHONINGS (not WC) to get rid of em. They leik ur gravel.

So I hear you leik gravel.

Try soaking them in the BW "juice". My guy started eating them eventually. Now he eats them without the "juice." I wouldn't feed them it everyday, because theyre high in protein. My guy got bloat from eating too many Anyways, maybe feed him a variety of frozen/live foods.
