He's finally here!!

My King has finally arrived. I asked about adopting him almost a month ago and he's finally here!!

His name is Poe (after Edgar Allen Poe). I'm surprised at how outgoing he is, I hear all the time that kings are very shy and timid and he is definitely not. He just wants food and more food I acclimated him and gave him 6 pellets (the small Attinson's ones not regular sized ones). He gobbled them up since he's been fasted for 3 days. I snapped just a few pictures. I'll give him a couple days to settle in and get colored up and then I'll get better pictures of him.
















You can't tell in the pictures but he has blue eyes <3

Bloo.. He's a male.. just a PK

He's very brave. Even when he was resting under his plant I tapped the tank and he came right out to ask for food. Right now he's just checking everything out.

VG.. How much do you feed yours? I gave him 6 pellets of the Attinson's Betta which are very small. I'm going to give him some blood worms for dinner tonight. I'm just not sure how many pellets he should get per meal.

8 or 9 Attison's a day for Kilo.

Edit: Kilo gets bloated really easily though, so I underfeed him a bit. You could mess around with that number. Once a week he gets 3-5 frozen bloodworms or mysis shrimp instead.

Thanks. I'll start with 4 pellets per meal and see how that goes. I'll probably give him 4 or 5 bloodworms. I usually give my regular guys 2-3 so that seems about right.
