I am new here. Last week I visited Petco and fell in love with two betta fishes. A male and a female which I christined Blue and Snowdrop (Snowy). The people at Petco assured me that I could keep them in small areas. After I purchased my new fish, (and a small tank from Lee's pet comapy and the food and stuff all together cost me $17.49). I checked the internet for betta care. I was shocked at all the information about betta care.
I live in a small room in a collage dorm and I'm a poor college student. I love Snowy and Blue but I don't know if they are happy with me or not. What kind of breed they are or if the water is good for them. I cleaned their water when it gets cloudy and fed them daily.
Blue is a hansome royal blue male with a bit of red. His tail looks like feathers. He is eatting fine and active. He flares sometimes when he sees Snowy. Recently I cleaned the container he came with and put him in a different container (2.5 I think) without the divider.
Snowy is different though, when I first brought her with Blue. She was active. But now she isn't eatting and she is in the container from the time when I first brought her. She is white and a bit pink. I can see her insides a little, they are gray.
Please tell me. Am I doing ok? Or should I find a new home for them and change their names to "For Sale"? Help!
