so today i brought home 2 beautiful boys from elemers fish supply store. they are known for some of the best well-bred fish and in particular betta fish. so i got a 6 month old super male delta who is absoultly gorgeous. but, that is not my problem you see i also got a 7 week old double half moon betta. he is my problem.
i put my double in a XL critter cage in which i used to have hermit cabs in. i thoroughly cleaned it out with out any soaps. my gravel which is blood red was leaking its dyes so i scrubbed it so it wouldnt and it seemed to be fine after that.
i put some extra rocks that i found camping in there as well yet i still cleanded them not scrubbed put gently rubbed them with water and nothing else. i also got 2 new plants today as well and put some of eachin my community tankand betta bowls. my plants are cabomba and well i forget the other (stupid is what i am sometimes). i took the rocks out now just to see if he would get any better
my double is red with super large tails and dorsals for such a youngin... he also has a white head and tiny eyes and a tiny mouth as well. the water is somewhat cloudy and has a white color to it.
he likes to lay on the rocks and seems very very drowsy he barely ate his dinner i made it sink infront of him.
my dad says he is just stunned because of the change and to give him a few days...
he is in a critter cage, again, and no filter no heater or anything but he is beside the community tank witch gives off heat.
i dont know the PH of the water i can tell you its well water and the temp. is 77.
please help i dont want to lose him i havent lost any yet.
i may be able to post a pic later
