I picked up
one of the "baby" Bettas at Petco, and now I'm doing my best to make sure s/he survives into adulthood. I currently have the fish in a 5g tank, filtered, heated, and with some silk plants and a decoration to provide for hiding places and to disrupt the water flow.
S/he's tiny, and I don't have any frozen food. If I simply grind the marketed Betta pebbles with the handle of a knife and feed him that, will I be harming him? If yes, can someone point me to where I can get what I should be feeding him?
Is a 5g tank too large for a Betta baby? Is my tank too densely planted?
Is there anything I'm obviously missing? Also, I know it needs to be warmer than the picture with the thermometer shows, that was before I had moved him.
