Hi...I'm kind of new to betas. I had some when i was little but my mom mostly took care of them for me. Now my boyfriend bought me a beta, which i have named Jose Cuervo (because he lives in a margarita glass). I've only had him for a week and a half. After our first week together I decided to clean out his bowl. I put him in a small plastic cup while i washed things up, i did this just by tipping him into it because i was afraid a net might hurt. And when I was done I tipped him back into his home. I was so scared because I noticed his normal dark blue body was white. And he was swimming franticly, stirring up the jems and swimming at the glass. His color slowly darkened and now is completly back to normal. I want to try and clean his bowl again, for the second time. But before I do, did I do something wrong in cleaning his bowl the first time.
He also has a ring of bubbles around his bowl...good sign? Does this mean he wants to mate or something?
I'll post a pic of Jose Cuervo Soon. I hope that by joining up here, I'll be able to take care of him all by myself!
