Yup, half an hour is great! I just wanted to make sure you were adding water rather than just letting him acclimate to the temp by floating him in the tank.

Where is Winnipeg?

Anywho, yes Nitrogen Cycle is very important but since it's a 1 gallon and assuming without a filter, it won't matter to much for that. But basically there are good Bacteria (Beneficial Bacteria or BB) that keep your fish safe from bad levels of ammonia (fish poop, left over food and more), nitrite and Nitrate. Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate are the bad guy's that are always there and the BB are the good guy's coming to eat up the bad guys and save your fishy ^_^

But the Cycle won't be stable in tanks under 3 gallon's really so you won't really have to worry about it, instead you'll have to do twice weekly water changes to keep the tank healthy. Or for now you're doing daily? water changes to keep him healthy? What else is wrong with him? If he's just stressed then you don't need to do daily water changes.

Winnipeg is up in Manitoba- our winters are pretty brutal-I had to transport poor Confishius home wrapped up in a blanket. I don't really know much about betta sickness, but he seems happier now than in Nestors. his colour seems a bit dull, but that might just be him. his body is a redish-salmon, his tail is blue with some redish streaks, his top fin is the same blue with blood red tips, and his bottom fin is blood red which turns into a translucent pink. I don't know, does that sound healthy to you?

Yeah he sounds fine to me. Sounds like a Pink Multicolored Betta to me red fins often turn almost clear when stressed out.

I had a girl that was nearly clear when she was stressed out:


and this is what she normally looked like lol:


So I don't think he's really sick at all but would be able to tell better if I had some pictures of him.

I'll try to post a picture, but it's pretty bad quality. I took this with my iPod.

Oh wow, he's gorgeous! He's not a Pink Multi, but a regular Multi. I can't put a color to it since he's not majorly one color or another but he's absolutely stunning! Yes the transparent fins are fine as well, that part is cellophane which just mean's it's see-through.

Definitely! I would probably say Orange and Blue Multi then since that's his main colors with Red and Cello thrown in lol. You could just call him Fancy like the Fancy Dragon's on AquaBid haha. But yeah, he looks great! I'm glad you were able to get pics up haha
