I've had a ten gallon cycling for about 5-6 months now. It's main inhabitant (a dwarf puffer) died sadly due to my mistrust in a roommate. :C I decided against getting another puffer and went with a betta this time. I've heard they're a lot more hardy than puffers at least - and beautiful to boot. I went to my local petco, and ended up falling in love with one of the baby bettas. I know they're a bit harder to take care of than adults, but the little fella captured my heart more than the full grown beauties did. This is my little Pontus:
I replaced the sand in my tank with bigger rocks because I read that sometimes bettas get curious and eat the sand and then end up choking on it. Pontus's tank mates are two golden rabbit snails, a ghost shrimp, and an algae eater shrimp. I wanted to make sure that everything is okay for my little fella, and that there are no hazards or other things I'm doing wrong.
He's currently hiding in the back by the heater that's behind the little temple thing. I figure he's just getting used to his new place and is a little shellshocked or something. I am a little worried about feeding him however - when I tried to earlier he didn't notice the food... But as I said before, he's in a new place and probably just needs to warm up to it. C: So is this okay for my baby, any tips or suggestions?
