My 4 year old really wanted a fish so i decided to buy him a betta fish, he named him fishfish
. Of course i take care of him. We've had him for about a month. at first i tried feeding him the pellets but he wouldn't eat them at all. so now i have been feeding him freeze dried bloodworms. he loves them. he used to flare his fins whenever we put a mirror in front of the tank, but now he NEVER flares. we have him in a betta fish tank that we bought from PETCO. (smaller than 2 gallons). he stays at the bottom of the tank all the time. he only comes to the surface to eat. he ignores the mirror now. i do have 2 small plants in th tank. what should i do? Please i really need advice. this is my son's first pet and he is really attached. he gives the tank a kiss every night before bed. his fish CANNOT die!!!
