Sounds just like my boys! All Bettas have different personalities- some are murderers to every other living creature, like my Pigg, but are sweet and adorable around you, and some are absolute sweethearts to everyone and everything, like my Atlas. It all depends on who they are :)

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum as of yesterday. Here is my 5 gallon
Bowfront tank with my betta I named "Crash". I have a few questions/concerns.
I've had him for about 6 months. Some nights when I come home,
Ill turn the light on and he seems disoriented for about 5 minutes. Bad
enough to where he just runs into stuff. Could that just be from immediate
light exposure? He gets natural light during the day, not direct sunloght but a good amount. Eventually he goes back to swimming normal. Also, I have a 1 1/2 inch aorater bar that is stuck to the back wall of the tank. Is that a bad idea? I will eventually turn it into a natural look but he is use to his little house for now I don't wanna change it on him. Any feed back would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

Nice setup, it's very colorful! Bettas are always hungry and seem to have an insatiable appetite so don't worry. 4 - 8 pellets daily depending on their size is what they need. Some bettas are a lot more aggressive than others...they are mostly aggressive toward one another and most likely won't flare at you. Try putting a mirror up and I bet he will flare!

I LOVE that driftwood/ornament. Is it real wood? I've been looking for some interesting driftwood pieces but I swear it's impossible and I always settle for a small, boring piece -_-

I know exactly what you mean! There are rarely any good driftwood pieces. In the end, I'll just end up buying a piece to help soften the water, and it becomes more backgoundish.

Hah I wish the tree root was real! I got it at PetSmart lol :( I'm gonna start checking online for some good mopani/malaysian driftwood.

You can always cut the driftwood as you want that's what I do with my tanks but you have to get a big piece to give it the desired shape
