Arrow What you can tell me over this fish !

Hey everyone !

I got a male betta fish. He looked like he is dying in his little bottel.
He wasnt realy good colored.
Now he is in a 3 gallon tank. I only feed him life food. All pellets I found are with chemicals. :(
Now he is no more skinny, has more colore and seems very happy.

Could you say me something what tail he has , if he look right ( His tail is a bit ..ar.. limped . Is this normal ?) or how old he could be ?

Would be very pretty !

Yup, a veil tail. Their tails droop like that because of the size & weight. If you show him a mirror he should flare & hold his fins (including his tail) erect. Not for more than five minutes, though! :)

I would venture to say he is an adult that is at least 6 months old, but there really is no way of knowing beyond that. Sorry!

Nice fish & sounds like you have done a VERY good job with him - CONGRATS!

Thank you :)

Do you now how to let him have more fun ? When I was a younger I had a yellow fighter with clear fins. I put a big plastik ring in the water and sad " Swimm throw it fishi" and he did it very well :D

But I think it isnt good for the water to put some plastic things in it.

So ... how I can make him some fun ? Do you "play" with yours ? Or is this even silly ?
