I had my filter off while I changed the water because I took so much out and he went to investigate and got hit with the waterfall LOL. I put the new plant under it and it makes a huge difference.

I guess I wasn't doing as good as I thought. I got a thermometer and my aquarium tested only 69 degrees. coooooold. I grabbed a heater, and I'm certain I'm going to have a very VERY happy Betta in the next few hours. Oh, I am taking some pics now too!

I also did a ammonia test, the first one i have ever done, and I tested 0 after a 50% cleaning, YAY!

Just make sure the temp does not rise too quickly, it can shock your fish. :)

Nice plan. *Nods* It's gone up 2 degrees in the last half hour, is that too quickly?

You did pretty good for your first betta fish. Most people don't know how it's not so easy to take care of a betta fish and they put them in a small bowl and rarely change the water. (I was one of those people[only with my first fish] i have picasso in a 3 gal and bubbles in a 2 and a half.) but great job taking care of them.

Sounds like you are a fantastic betta owner! Keep up the good work, just watch the temperature change.

The temperature raising went great! It has made it up to 78 finally, and Biscotti is doing extremely well! he's all over the tank, exploring the new setup and enjoying himself quite a bunch!

I stuck my hand into the tank to fix a plant and he attacked it; Rammed it and started to nibble a bit, it surprised me and I twitched so he took off, but he sure is a plucky little guy!

Haha! I love when they act all goofy like that. I put a thermometer in Cheep-Cheep's tank and he sat there looking at it for half an hour, with his nose resting against the pointy end. Weirdo.

You are doing a wonderful job, and he sounds like a funny, perky little betta! I love you tank and your betta. :D He is soooo pretty! My veiltail has been changing colors like nuts since I got him! First he was kind of purple/blue, now he is a purple/sky blue depending on the light with streaks of pink. He is so pretty! I love you setup, good luck with Biscotti.
