Don't forget to remove any uneaten food from the tank. If you leave it in, it could be why your water is cloudy.

Hikari pellets are a good brand. Just curious, why did you switch over to flakes?

I was wondering if the type of food was why Jimmy wasn't eating.

Try to get a heater. The cold temperature is probably stressing him out very much. I would switch to Betta Pellets because some bettas are picky eaters. Most bettas don't like flakes. Let us know how he is doing!

I looked for a heater, but my friends said that I shouldn't get one because my bowl's too small and they don't want me to "cook the fish." Instead of a heater, I'm using a lamp over his bowl to help warm the water. Is that a bad idea? Other than that, I'd say that Jimmy's quite a happy fishy! =D

Well how big is this jar....is it enough to even put anything in it? If not get a bigger tank/bowl. Kritter Keepers are wonderful or if you have a big clearish tub with a lid.....put him in there. You could use a small pot as a cave....
