Any of the attinson's products have small pellets. Also NLS betta pellets are small.

A fish is a marble if it changes color at all. There is red loss which is something different but on any color fish a marble is one that gains or loses color. Butterflies are also a form of marble that don't change color.

Two weeks is the farthest I'd recommed going with out food. Even then the betta's immune system starts to be lowered. Technically a healthy betta could go a month without food. (NOT RECOMMENDED)

When my betta is swimming, he'll act normal, but then occasionally, he randomly spazzes and swims really quickly in a zig-zag, then returns to swimming normaly. Should I be worried?

Is it ok to stick my hands in the tank, to clean and such, while the heater is on and plugged in, or do I have to unplug it each time?

It should be alright, 80* farenheit is not very hot, and won't hurt you if your hands are in the water

JK.. I wouldn't be worried.

Narnian. The only time you need to unplug the heater is while doing a water change.

Thank you! Oh, and just to clarify - I wasn't worried about burning myself, only of electrocution.

Narnian: the only time you could potentially electrocute yourself is if you were to touch the outlet where the heater was plugged in, with wet hands. :)

1fish2fish: thanks.

If I used regular pea gravel a tank, would the gravel affect the water parameters?
