Hi guys, I was just wondering, I have a betta that's about 11 weeks old and is about 1 1/4 inches long is that normal size for a 11 week old betta and if not what can I do to help him or her (not sure if it's a boy or girl I'm thinking boy.) grow big and strong. He or she is in a 10 gallon tank with 3 platys and 3 neon tetras. It is filtered and I'm trying to get a heater. the temperature right know is 79 degrees Fahrenheit.
They tend to prefer the higher end of the temp spectrum, 81-82 degrees is perfect for them :) 79 is fine for the time being also until you get the heater. He/she won't be cold. Definitely go for variety in foods so the fish gets all the nutrients possible.
freeze dried bloodworms are nothing more than the casing of the original worm with very little nutrition to them. I haven't heard bad things on freeze dried shrimp and other freeze dried things just those. Their like mcdonalds french fries, not the meal, just the fries.
