decorations

is it a good idea to change the decorations in the tank frequently? Does this upset the betta or add to his enjoyment? Thanx.

I am definitely no expert, but I have read that if you suspect your fish is getting bored it may be a good way to stimulate him. I think subtle changes from time to time are not a bad idea. But I wouldn't be surprised if BIG changes all the time end up stressing him out. Hopefully someone who knows a little more will chime in for you :)

Changing The decor around is not upsetting in itself, no. but the frequent ness of putting your hand in and moving things around would probably freak them out if done too often. Do it when you do large or 100% changes, when you need to take the fish out.
Rearranging, like said, helps ward off boredom somewhat and can also help curb excess aggression- the betta thinks its new territory for like a week.

Make sure I'd and when you move the decor, nothing can harm your betta by either having something that would squish him or that he can wedge into, like between a cave and threw tank wall.

Well I only move my betta's decorations around when I clean their tanks. But I keep the same decorations, I just move them around. It seems to me that bettas like exploring.
