I finally got my new betta!

I just went to Petsmart and brought home a new crowntail male betta. He had a bubblenest going in hiis cup and was flaring a lot so I thought that was a good sign. We'll see how he does when I put him in his new home.

Thanks. He's pretty active right now and ate the pellet I offered him. So many people have had problems getting their fish to eat the first few days. I've never had that problem but thought this one would probably be the exception.

Post feeding

i just got a new beta yesterday (Bleeker) and he eats fine but he always seems like he is trying to find more pellets at the bottom of the tank and looks up at the top too... so i was just wondering if that means he wants fed more...if i should feed him more or what...??? i have pellet food and the pellets seem kind of small so i don't know how many to give him i was told about 6 but that doesn't seem to be enough...some help please!!!

He should be fed 2-3 pellets 2 times a day. They may look at you as if they are starving to death but 2-3 pellets 2 times a day is enough.

Sorry but I don't have a digital camera. I just got another crowntail today. He's red, green and blue. I don't have names for either one yet. The first one seems so timid. The other one is very active and is nosing among the rocks.
