Hi there! This is my first time ever owning a betta. Usually, I stick to the small animals, but a few months ago, I had started a 2.4 gallon planted shrimp tank. Unfortunately, while I was moving, 2 of my 3 ghost shrimp didn't survive (>.<), so I was down to 1 shrimp, lots of plants and no life in a cycled tank.
Either way, a few days ago, I saw an ad on Kijiji about someone giving away their betta. I suck at resisting stuff like that!
Either way, please say hi to Mr. Betta-who-still-needs-a-name:
He was living in a bowl with glass beads and being fed tropical fish flakes... that's why I'm wondering if he's SUPPOSED to look like that or maybe all the white-ness is due to malnutrition?
Well, I'm feeding him "HBH Betta Bites" now. Which says it's 42% protein and only 2% fiber, so I'm hoping that'll be good. Also have some freeze-dried blood worms, since I read bettas LOVE them.
I have a heater, a mini filter (which I love! :)), 2 Japanese moss balls, java fern and java moss. I'm hoping this pretty boy will gain some more colour and be able to live beautifully!
Oh, and just because I can't resist... my other pets:
Spook, Marley, Monkey, Liam & Sketch
Speedy (the hamster I was told is a rat... but - obviously - turned out to be a hamster!)
