so my betta is either sick (i doubt... he still swims around a bit...) or very bored. i kinda feel bad for him, and I know that if they get bored, they could even die from it. I have two decorations inside my tank... 10 gallons... any ideas?
he likes the one decoration especially on the left. when i got him, its like he didn't even notice the decorations. now he likes to hang around them. he will sometimes hang above the green decoration on the right as well. :) any ideas as how i could possibly spice things up for him? :p
Plants would help for sure. Live would be nice but you can get some nice silk plants, mostly so he can swim around and explore also hide when he wants to rest. What is the water temp like and have you tested the water recently? I know the peeps that know more will want to know that.
If you cant get live or dont think theyre for you, silk and soft plstic fakes are great. Make sure they cant snag hosiery, etc. I got a bunch from Petco, silk, and theyre quite nice and pretty big. Lots from Petsmart/TopFin, too!
You can also prowl around dollar stores, etc for tiny to largish terracotta pots and half stack them (like one on its side at the base, with another one verticalish leaning on it securely, etc), which is a fun place to play in ;B
i think he is fine..
i have a small terocatta pot here, 2.5 inches wide at the opening. it is painted blue though. i am not sure what type of paint it is though. is this ok? can i put it in there without hurting my betta? and is the size too small? do they like to hang in small places like that?
