Yup, that works for acclimation just fine. :)

a small hole

Ok. Thanks! :)

Grrr, hopefully one more thing. This small hole appeared in his fin today......
Weekly 100% water changes for his 2.5 gal tank, continue feeding him food high in protein, and watching his fin!! Ha

Pinholes like that can occur for any number of reasons. Some of it is just regular wear and tear; these bettas we love so much have been bred to have such large fins that those fins tend to be rather fragile. If the pinhole gets bigger or develops dark black edges, then we can worry but for now, I'd say keep a close eye on it and lots of clean water like you plan to do. :)

Daughter's new betta Cole got one of those his dorsal half an hour after we got him home and I was oh noes! A couple of hours later, it was gone. Then he got one in his tail.. That sealed right back up again, too. Seems he wasn't used to spreading his fins in that weeny little cup and had a couple of blowouts.. Sakura has it right, best to watch it, but it may just be a result of him flaring or just swimming about a lot.

Haha, yeah, I remember when my first betta Sherman got his first fin tear. Talk about major panic. Now his fins are just so raggedy with age that I don't even care anymore. As long as the tears are healthy and the water is clean, I know he'll be fine.

Great, sounds good!! :)
After seeing the hole for the first time was like, "Why is THAT there?! OMGOODNESS." Then, realized there wasn't a need to worry again. Also, the hole is getting smaller and you can barely see it now. :)

It's ridiculously amazing how fast their fins grow.
