hi! i just got my first betta yesterday, i got him from a local fish store. it was sort of like a rescue, the tank they had him in had so much current that the poor dear couldn't even swim in a straight line. he's now in a 1.5 gal bowl. yes, i know, yall suggest 2.5, but he is very small (his body's only about an inch) and he loves it, so i think he'll be fine for now. he has a heater so he can be nice and warm.
i'll be doing water changes, 25% every 2 days, and a 100% once a week.
he's a sweet little boy, he ate his first meal yesterday with much enthusiasim, and whenever he sees me he swims right over to say hi. i know he's just another plain old red vt, but i love him <3
i love the bit of black on the tip of his tail.
he's a photogenic boy
he really likes his plastic plant (its soft, and i filed down any points, so its safe)
showing off how agile he is.
i hope yall like my boy!!! if you have any suggestions for a newbie such as myself please share them! i've been stalking this site for the past week, studying up to prepare for him, but if i've missed anything, please let me know!
