Just got my little guy last Sat. Bought him a 1.5 gal tank...going to upgrade him to a 2.5 [not allot of space for bigger tank]. Also got him an African Dwarf frog buddy last Sun.
Never owned a betta before...bot sure if he looks as he's suppose to, or if he's in fact a little bloated? Looks like his tail got scratched...but was like that when I got him.
Think his filter is a bit over powered...going to replace w/a lower one...getting heater for them today too.
Side shot...kinda blurry:
another blurry shot...but can see "bulge" near pectoral fins:
the following are from the day before yesterday...dirt spots from water are on outside of tank
what do you think? Is he normal or a bit bloated? Noticed he stopped liking the pellet-balls I got for him (specially for betas, not multi fish), but he loves the blood worms [seems to not get enough of them...only ate the pellets the first day i brought him home as he was very hungry...at over 10 of them!)
He's still active...just today he was trying to get my attention while watching TV swimming back and forth...once I walked over to him, he would just look at me, and show off a little.
Also...how many worms are okay to eat in one sitting? Read only 2-3 times a week for the worms is sufficient enough...but when i feed them to him, he seems to keep wanting more and more. Do I just cut him off, or feed until he's full?
Read that if he is bloated, I should not feed him for a a couple days, then feed him an unshelled pea...if he is bloated...should I break the pea up a bit, as it seems it would choke him?
sorry for all the question...just want to make sure my little guy is alright ;D
