My son gave me a Betta fish for mother's day and I love it. However, this is new to me and I want to take care of it properly. I went to the pet store and learned that I need to feed him 3 times a day and clean out any food he doesn't eat in a few minutes. The employee also said that pellot food is better as it helps keep the tank cleaner. I also learned that I need to change 25% of the water every 2-3 days. Here are my questions:
1) My Betta won't eat - - he did at first, but now I don't see him eating. I go back and forth between the pellots and the flakes. He doesn't seem to like the pellots at all. What am I doing wrong?
2) My tank is cloudy. What am I doing wrong?
3) I have a small 1 gallon tank with gravel in the botton and a fake flower in the middle. There seems to be plenty of room for him to move around. Is my set up correct?
My youngest son purchased a kit at the pet store last night that included water. After he set it up, it was beautiful, but this morning it's cloudy. What gives?
I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks much!!!!
