Hello to everyone. You may know me from another thread, I had a betta named Yomi that had fin rot from a pet store that I had purchased him from. I kept him for about a month but alas he succumbed to his illness and the stress ended up killing him :(
Since that time I have purchased another betta. His name is TuYomi- yes, like Yomi 2 XD. He is different from Yomi because he is a crowntail (Yomi was a veiltail), and I absolutely adore him. I had kept him in a 3.5 gallon glass bowl for the first week he was here, but since then I noticed he lost his vigor. I concluded that it was from being cold, since the glass from his bowl wasn't holding in the heat from his heater; so I downsized to a two gallon bowl/tank. His conditions didn't improve, and I concluded that the reason for his "illness" was from the water quality. I have chlorine treated water fixtures in my house, I used a water neutralizer to remove any chlorine from the water I put in his bowl, but evidently it didn't work. I'm not taking any more chances with my house water, so now I am only using fresh water I purchased from the store.
TuYomi is currently in a bowl that is very small. It's only a temporary home, I want him to recooperate before he moves into his final home. I need to make sure I do everything right this time, I don't want him to end up like Yomi did. :/ Anyone have any tips?
* Bowl is 2 gallons
* His heater makes the water in the 2 gallon 78 degrees F
* I feed him BettaMin and pellets
* He has fake plants and a plastic pagoda in his bowl
