I'm new here, so hello there! (: My name is Kari!
Okay so, yesterday, I got a betta fish. He lives in a 10 gallon tank with blue rocks, 3 fake silk plants, a "broken" columns thingy(don't worry it passed the pantyhose test), a heater, a thermometer and a filter! So, I noticed that when I have the tanks light on, "Noname" doesn't swim around very much, and he just kinda chills on the top of the water on the left side of his tank. He pretty much looks dead when he does this, he even kinda starts tilting to the side. Why does he do that? But, when I turn the tank light off, he swims around does his thing, so I was like "Oh he probably just doesn't like the light!" So should I just keep the light off or should I turn it back on and he will just get used to it? :/ I just want him to be happy and he seems happier with it off!
Oh, and I put him in the tank yesterday and the water seems kinda cloudy today(not very cloudy!! but it's not as clear as it was yesterday but it's still pretty clear) Why?! :o
Thanks for your help and reading all of this, I really appreciate it ;D
