I got Nadador from WalMart 20 days ago today. When I got him his fins looked ragged and he was refusing to eat and was very aloof. Now his fins seem to be growing back and he eats like a hog :D
But, when I see pictures of other bettas he seems really thin in comparison.
Also, he gets really pale on the base of his fins at least once a day. One day he got VERY pale. So pale, that if someone had seen him for the first time, they would probably think he was a creamy white betta with red tips on his fins. (He is my avatar pic) I test his water and all the numbers are great.
I also have no clue if he's digesting or pooping okay.
He gets bloated very fast when I feed him. I usually feed him a tiny bit of flakes and a crushed up pellet in the morning. and His stomach gets very swollen. I think it could be because he is so skinny his stomach pokes out? I also feed him a blood worm when I get home and another crushed pellet before bed.
I tried not feeding him yesterday and he was still bloated today So I gave him 3 tiny pieces of a pea. I wish I could see him poop lol, sounds funny, but what should normal poop look like?
Other than all this he swims around very gracefully and his fins aren't clamped. He seems to be content with his house, but I don't know why he is always bloated and turns pale all the time. :[
