You can feed your betta 2-3 pellets twice a day. 81 degrees is fine. Anywhere from 76 to 82 is ok.

I'd say most of them are at least 6 months old when you get them at the petstore.

If you're lucky they can be about 3 months. I think Blue was pretty young when I got him. He was tiny. I'm so excited about going to Walmart. lol I hope she's there.

Pheonix was full size by the time I got him so I think he is 6 months. I feed him 2 pellets twice a day.

I think Rusty was around 3-4 months when I got him because he was small. He's gotten bigger.

I'd say anywhere from 3 months to almost a year.
