Hi, I'm new to this wonderful site. I LOVE it! So much info on my favorite kind of fish.
I have two Betta fish, one Walmart "Rescue" his name is Jello-Bites. And my newest one is Sammy Marshwiggle. I'm going to make a divider for the 10 gallon tank that Jello-Bites is in. I have to make the divider still.
I currently have Sammy in a 1.5 half gallon bin, just a quarantine tank. I'm doing 50% water changes every day and full water changes every 3-4 days. He will be in the 5 gallon soon. I have one problem though, I had a ceramic pot in his tank, so he could hide. He was trying to go UNDER it! I took it out because I didn't want him to get stuck under it! I have a nice big fake plant is his bin. But, Do you think that he will continue this behavior when he is the 5 gallon??? or is it just boredom? He is really healthy from what I can see. I just got him a week ago from what I can tell. Are there any decorations that will give him security other than plants? I don't want my baby to get hurt! He also seems to be a little bit of a picky eater. My Walmart Rescue has NO problem eating!!
He is a pig! But, sammy just doesn't seem interested. I feed pellets. I'm thinking about switching to some kind of worm if he doesn't start to eat well soon.
