might want to do a feeding tap. basically right before feeding you tap the rim of the tank so he knows it's time for food

Thank you all so much for the tips!
Youve all been incredibly helpful 8D




As for the feeding tap, I have to take the lid off my tank when I feed then and it makes a noise, so that should work as a tap ^^

good to know, he still seems in shock from being moved out of his tiny cup into a 2.5 gallon

I agree with Sakura8.... you also might be able to fit in more varieties of non-aggressive, secretive fish that non-blind bettas would normally go for. Am I right, or would they atill attack? Best of luck, anyway.

you actually could. Of course keep in mind that the betta will still smell them and feel them moving, so something not on the top level of the water would work. Shrimp, snails...depending on the tank itself...ADF, cories, etc.

You make silk flowers?! I see one of them in your avatar pic. They are gorgeous! It would be cool if you started making them for people and selling them! I know I would buy one! As for your blind betta, I'm sorry I can't help. My only advice is to not move around his decor too much as that might confuse him. Good luck! :)

I think adding in other fish would just stress him out, he'll probably live on his own for his life. Once he gets settled into his tank I /may/ add a shrimp or two but a 2.5 is really too small to add anything big anyways ;)

Lol! That cup with the flower on top is actually the one he has in with him. I dont technically make them, I just take fake silk flowers and use aquarium sealant to stick them onto cups and stuff. ^^
