In the 10g divided tank-what kind of filtration are you using, any live plants, additives used, how much aquarium salt did you add, water temp and how much and how often are the water changes, appetite, how much and type of foods...do you have another Betta in the other section, if so, male or female....
That's a relief about the fins!
- no live plants,
- I added one tablespoon of aq salt,
- the water temperature is between 70 and 74 (I try to regulate it at 72, but the roomie and I turn down the house heat when we leave).
- It's filled about full, about an inch from the top of the tank.
-50% water change every week,
- he eats a small pinch of tropical flakes and 2 or 3 betta pellets a day, a couple bloodworms every few days as well as freeze dried brine shrimp (not very often, they don't eat it unless I mix it with flakes.) Maybe once a week or so some frozen foods.
-The betta next to him is a boy who flares at the boy next to him but doesn't seem to notice Absolem. (the tank is split in 4 sections, the 4th smaller than the others with just the heater and air stone.)
I bred Absolem once before and he wasn't super aggresive towards the female. Still aggresive, but not as much as other males I've had.
