Well I did put the lamp over him which freaked him out a little so I waited for him to perk up a little, the first pic he's flaring the second he's not. I noticed he has brighter colors when flaring. Anyways to the questions asked.
This is from this week's log that I keep
Unfiltered 1,5 g.
-I change his water twice a week, once 50% with aged water and then 100% with aged water (with conditioner of course, sera beta aquatan, it's running low so I will start using a new brand soon, Nutrafin betta +)
Sera bettagran, alternating with dried blood worms and sometimes nutrafin flakes (but he HATE those)
26 C = 78,8 F
Natural, or room light, I no longer use a lamp because it forces me to have the lid open.
- Signs of tail biting, however he's never done it since I bought him.
- No diseases yet.
- Fin injury from a particular decor.
CHANGES THE PAST FEW WEEKS:
- Pulled out some decor, I thought more space to swim would help him. This was a week ago, perhaps he's stressed because he feels like he cannot hide?
