I am so nervous about moving my betta to another aquarium. He was totally happy in his 2 gallon jug, but I worried about temperature and the jug didn't allow for much when it came to plants and decoration.
I bought an Aqueon evolve 4 gallon aquarium kit. I've followed all of the Aqueon directions and have the tank ready. I've got Leo floating in his cup and am adding a tablespoon of water every 15 minutes for the next hour, then plan on putting him in his new home.
If I kill him, I will be so upset! I've only had him a few days, but he has more spunk and personality than I ever thought a fish could have. And he seems totally in love with me. He actually lets me pet him! Like I said, he's fearless. He doesn't even flinch when I put my finger in the water, but immediately swims to me. He follows my hand, whatever I am doing in his tank, curious about what I am doing. I think he's a good candidate for training. I hope that doesn't harm him for me to pet him.
Anyway, I'll post pictures. Oh, and let me know if I should be aware of something before I put him in his new home.
