Do you feed them only with flakes? Flakes cause swim bladder issues more readily than most pellets. You should be using a high quality protein based pellet with the first two or three ingredients as whole fish not fishmeal or wheat. The flakes will also muck up his water quickly and if you're not running a cycled tank that means ammonia builds up much more quickly.

Maybe you could bust out your awesome geographical knowledge? Explain that Thailand is right between the tropic of cancer and the equator. They are below China, and due to their location, they typically have warmer weather year round.



They definitely don't live in puddles, though. They live in rice patties and flooded areas. IF they live in 'puddles', these are thousand gallon 'puddles' (which don't equate to puddles at that point if you ask me :P).

Putting a betta in a cold environment is like having a polar bear in a hot zoo with only cold water (not a cold, enclosed environment). Sure it lives and can reproduce, but it doesn't mean that it is happy or healthy doing so.

Nah dont worry about it

So I got my mother (with my money) To pick me up another heater + thermometer from the petstore today on her was home from work. I set it up in lewis tank a few hours ago and its working well Only thing is they sold out of regular thermometers and so the one she picked up had to be bent into shape to fit decently onto my tank!
