So, I bought a Betta fish at the dreaded Petco.... She was the only healthy fish left and I had to save her before she ended up like the others. Her bin was labeled as a Female Crowntail, the lid to her bin was labeled as a Male Plakat, and she was in the Vieil Tail Section. I have named her Theodore, but I'm not sure of her fin type. She is definately a female, for she is smaller in size and has two dark stripes down her side. She isn't a Half Moon, but she isn't a Plakat; her fins are too long. She's light purpleish-pink/grey/translucent and is in a decently szed critter keeper. It is not one gallon, but she has plenty of room. No heater, no airation. She is sitting on a table a couple feet under a window so she has light, but not direct sunlight. I do have a concern as far as her eating goes. I have some basic Betta Pellets, and I also puchased some kind of freeze-dried shrimp while I was there. The shrimp and pellets are too big to fit in her mouth, and I have some freeze-dried bloodworms at my house I'm going to bring over to use as treats with the shrimp. If I cut the shrimp and bloodworms into smaller pieces, will they be alright? I'm going to try to cut the pellets in half, too. I thought about flakes but I don't use flakes due to them expanding. She seems to be eating good aside from it not fitting in her mouth. (she keeps picking at the shrimp) So I'm glad she's eager to eat. She is just getting comfortable swimming around her tank. She has so much personality and I've only had her for a short amount of time. I love the way her eyes move as she looks around. I'll post photos and measurements of her tank and of her, too on Monday. I'm at my father's house, but my camera is at my mum's. I can't get her a larger bowl, but I'm thinking about picking up some Bettafix just to make sure she stays healthy, because I fear her getting finrot like her fellow inmates at Petco. Please give me any information you think I may need.
