Just got my Betta today

Hi everyone. I just got my betta boy today. His name is Dargo. He's my first fish so I hope he can survive a newbie. He is a beautiful multi colored double. He is kind of an irridescent blue color with some red and touches of purple.

He is a little guy but he is very fiesty. I had a blue background taped onto the back of his tank and I guess there was too much reflection because he started flaring and attacking the glass so I took that off. I also had a wadded up paper towel sitting next to the tank and noticed that he was flaring and darting at it.

He is in a cycled 10 gallon planted tank. He's been swimming all over, exploring the cave, plants and rocks. Hopefully this means he's feeling good and happy.


Thanks!

Sounds like you've got a wonderful home for him. Don't be surprised if he doesn't eat much the first little while as he is settling in; that can be common with new fish. My guy was a real flare storm for the first few days until he settled in too. :)
