Smile Harley in his new home

"Harley" got a new home today which he seems to like much better. Its a standard 1gal bowl but its a traditional shape fish bowl. The old one was more of a round bowl.

Very nice, but you should plan on getting a heater! Bettas are tropical fish and require warm water.

Also some soft plants, that tank seems too bare for a betta. He is so pretty :)

Is it just me or does he look like he has a bit of fin rot?

It does look like he has a tad of finrot. OP, how often do you do water changes? Just wondering for the good of your fish :D

It's actually a mix of multi-color and red substrate, mostly red.

I just bought a thermometer today as I was a bit worried too. It checked at 78F. My condo is hot water heated so it's always pretty hot in here.

I have only had him a week tomorrow so he's only had 1 change a few days ago. I bought him another bowl today so I can make it easier to do them more frequently.

I was wondering if he might have had finrot. I couldn't see him too well in the stores hex sided column/bowl. Heck I didn't even know he had so much blue in him until I got him home. Some days his fins look better than others and depending on the angle I view him at. Ive heard about finrot on this site but don't really know anything about it so I guess I have some homework to do.
