not really an emergency, but i'm a bit concerned.
my PK female, Lulu. she's been kinda twitchy lately. :/ i'll often hear rustling in the rocks, then see her swimming up, or see her darting about in her tank. she's a big ol' gal, so if she'd lost weight, i'd have noticed, and her poos are fine, so i don't think it's parasites. she had an outbreak of ick a few months back, but i got rid of that fast, and have been on the lookout for it since. i shine a light on my bettas once every few days, checking for signs of ick, velvet, or anything i wouldn't normally notice, and she's a clean gal.
the only other thing that'd different about her, is she keeps the vertical "breeding" stripes ALL the time. she can't in any way see any of my males, and my three females are on different sides of the room, with Lulu by my boys, Chappy on my dresser, and Caroline on my computer desk. i keep the betts on my table separated by things like blank pocket folders so they can't in any way see them, and they rarely ever even see each other at any time, so i don't get why the bars are there.
she lives in a two gallon, with the heater at 70. i change her water once every three days, at 100%. i clean the rocks and her super huge pink plant with water as hot as i can stand it. she's fed once a day, with eather New Life Spectrum Grow, Betta Formula, Attison's betta pellets, Hikari Betta Bio-gold, or crushed Wardley's Betta pellets. i give her a treat of a few freeze-dried blood worms once in a while, but never more than one day a week.
i'm worried about my big gal. i'd wanted to divide a 10 gallon between her, and my baby HMPK, Chappy, but i don't want to if she's sick, or anything. :<
