What have you people done? I followed your suggestions faithfully, treated tap water, heater, bigger tank, etc and all and now I have a MONSTER
on my hands!
Seriously though, the difference is nothing short of remarkable- he's faaaar
perkier than at any point since I've had him. Attitude? Whoaaaa...
Except when he's just relaxing, he bolts
everywhere he goes, and this critter is fast
too! Attitude? Something like a hybridized piranha/great white, I mean he comes almost halfway out of the water when he hits his food, and he'll run at it from all the way across his 6 gallon bowl. Just amazing.... Displays more, better color too, you name it.
Thank you folks, it's an amazing turnaround. Just wish I'd come to this forum before
I got him and his now expired cross town companion.
Now a question- I've been feeding him live tiny insects and he just loves 'em, but I also got him some frozen brine shrimp (since he has a taste for the freeze dried stuff) but as I mentioned before, he doesn't seem to recognize anything that doesn't float as food. Anyone have any thoughts as to how to retrain him or make the frozen stuff float?
Just for giggles, here's a pic of Little Dude in his new environs- will post a better pic of his bowl on the Betta housing thread in a bit.
Thanks again folks, you're the best!
