Haha I know right...My last one was named Mr. Stark, so I wanted to stick with the avengers theme, and since this guy is kind of an old man probably, thought it fit well XD

Thank you! Wasn't sure if there was anything else I could do, since they were obviously curling up from being in the little container for so long. But they have uncurled a little already :D

Yep it's silk and it is actually part of the green leaves in the background, it is just one big silk decoration that I got at Petco. Betta's really like them I've noticed because the broad green leaves are perfect for resting on right near the top :)

Nice! Purple is my favorite color, so when I set up my next tank I HAVE to get one now I think! :D

This tank will eventually be a sorority tank. I'm hoping to get some girls tomorrow. I was going to wait for it to cycle naturally but I'm impatient so I'm going to use something like Biospira to kick-start the cycle. Hoping to get five or six girls that are different colors.

Hey Ramia, He is a gorgeous fish. curled and crinkly fins may be a sign of finrot, which is mostly caused by dirty water . Try some salt and clean his water often. THere are allot of posts on fin rot on this forum.

@fishcat13, unless there are some live plants in there, I'd wait to cycle your tank. Not cycling your tank can cause harm to your bettas.

Yeah I have actually been starting to wonder a little if he has a small case of fin rot, his fins are about the same but there are a few spots on the tips that seem a bit more red than when I first got him. Though his body is starting to color up a bit more which is great! :D

But curious is it alright if I just get some aq or epsom salt and put it straight into his aquarium, to treat any fin rot that may be in there. I've heard of other people doing it with quarantine tanks instead, but I wouldnt have a means of keeping that warm, and he gets spooked fairly easy I've noticed so I feel like moving him from tanks right now would cause more harm than good.

I'm sure you could use his cup and just secure/float his cup in his aquarium. His aquarium will continue to be heated and keep him warm while he goes through the treatment you want for him.

But IME, clean water goes a long way for fins. I've never seen fin growth or fin recovery sped up by AQ salt or any medications. Fin growth is likely going to always be slow.

Alrighty..then I think at this point I am just going to let it go and see what happens. Cause I don't think anything is severe, and he is fine and dandy really. Probably just anything left over from being stuck in that little container

Yeah, it doesn't look severe. You can add stress coat but I don't think AQ salt is necessary as long as he has clean, warm water.
