Got Ty sitting in his bag in the tank. He is quite upset with me. He keeps trying to swim for his plant. Poor baby. Im gonna hate these next few hours that he has to sit in the bag while I slowly add the little bit of new water in his bag.
Though I havent gotten to examine him this closely in a while. His changing cup isnt see through. Takin the time to closely examine him, especially his fins since hes flaring a bit.
Also kept out his gravel, except for enough to hold up his plant. Then I can make sure he is eating his Omega One pellets.

Ty is in his tank(sadly not the 2.5 gallon yet) with the new mixed water and seems to be doing well. He is all over exploring (as I moved his plant and left out some of the gravel so I could make sure he is eating the pellets).
The heater should come on tuesday (Darn holiday falling on monday so I wont get it sooner >:/
IF there are any more problems/questions i'll start a new topic.
I just want to thank you all again for the help! I would be so terribly lost if you guys werent here. You all are life savers! THANK YOU!!!
I was reading up on betta fish diseases (bad idea) and got the bright idea to shine the flashlight on him. He has some deep red on top of his head that I didnt notice before. I am going to take his tank down, take the cover off, and attempt to maybe get pictures. As I read that velvet can also be rust colored, not just gold.
I really hope he is just coloring differently and I didnt notice before since I never able to get a closer look at his head under a bright bright light like the flashlight.
Until he's really eating I guess im gonna be slightly paranoid.
Make a picture. We can compare the picture to the one that you posted on 8/29 post #11.
Also if he would have velvet that is one kind of external parasites, he will develop more symptoms like darting, scratching his body on objects, clamped fins
Took a TON! of pictures. For some reason he was a really good today and sat more still. So be prepared for a couple of image heavy posts. Took my flashlight and put him directly under a really good lighted lamp (so maybe it was the lack of needing flash that made him a better picture taker today)
