blue water

i was told from petsmart, when i got my beta, that the blue water is to keep the fish from seeing each other and trying to fight. don't know if it is true or not, but it is what i was told when i asked. i don't like how they are kept in cups though. my beta is happy, even though it is only a 1 gallon tank, he is not complaining much

That doesn't make any sense, why would they say that? The bettas can completely see through the blue, and the blue is medicine.

Petsmart does it again

What (if any) different needs do Giant bettas need? I understand that they probably need more room, and more food but what is your recommendation?

They do* need more space, yeah..We usually recommend 2.5 gal minimum for normal size, so that'd be about 4-5 gallons for him. Very very minimum for a normal size is 1 gallon, so again, around 2.5-3.

Id give him at least an extra pellet than a usual fish a day.

Other than that, that's it!

With New Life Spectrum small fish formula how much to give? Instead of the usual six I wind up giving them more then that because they're so tiny...

pewpewpew, thanks! my lfs has a really cool giant for 10.00$ that I think I might try and get! I just found this store yesterday and it's awesome! the bettas are in big(gish) cups of clear water, and the giant they at least recognized as a giant and put him in a larger cup...
