Hello, I'm new to this site. My name is Carissa and I live near Philadelphia in PA.
Anyways, I was in a competitor's pet shop across the street from mine and out of curiosity I was looking at the betta fish. I had 2 in the past when I was younger, and I decided I wanted one again. So I bought a tank with a filter and light and set it up at home. Then I let the water run for a few days and searched over atleast 4 pet stores to find a betta fish I liked. Then I saw this all white one, and he wasn't transparent. He's smaller than the other male fish but he is sooo cute. I just dont know a name!
(He loves his little leaf hammock! Even though its plastic I think itll be safe for him)
Also, His tank is at 78-80 degrees, is that too hot? I turned off his light anyways. I fed him before I put him in the big tank so Id know he had eatten if he got stressed out. He ate blood worms, but spit out his pellets. I think they are too big for him?
I think about 76-82 is considered okay, with 78 pretty much being ideal, so you're probably fine
you can try crushing the pellets before you give them to him, or soak them in water for a while then cut them. or you can see if you can find some micro pellets and try those
oh, and I think yeti sounds cute, lol
He's very pretty! I've got one similar to him; his name's Eli (thanks to Luimeril for the name~). And I'm not so great with names, not for others' fish... maybe Frost? Angel? Lighting? :D Whatever floats your boat, I suppose.
Like the others have been saying, really be careful about that leaf hammock. It'd be best if you could replace the metal wire with a substitute like plastic.
Personally I'd rather get a broad-leaved plant for my bettas to hang out on. >>
Good luck with him, though! And welcome to Bettafish.com!
