so i have 2 bettas, a male and a female. i got the male first and the female just last weekend. so first, lets talk about the boy:
before i got my female, he was really sweet, never flared, was active but not hyper or anything. the day i got my female was the first time i really saw him in an all out flare. he just seems more aggressive than he ever was before, which is especially odd because i had originally put their tanks right next to each other, but moved it after it seems liked he was stressing too much. lately (since i got her) even thought doesnt really see her at all, he has been way more hyper than he had been before. and i also noticed he has a way bigger appetite than he did before too. he used to eat about 4 or 5 pellets and be done, but now i have to cut him off because he wont stop, and he practically attacks his food. now, the day i got her was also the first day i did a big water change on his tank, and it messed up his bubble nest. he hasnt built a new one, and its been nearly a week (this honestly concerns me more than anything, really, because it was one of the first things he did when i got him) could he be upset because i destroyed his bubble nest, and is their a way i can clean his tank without harming any future nests? and is this hyper behavior normal while he adjusts to having another betta around?
now the girl. she doesnt really have that many issues, shes a good baby :) but i am concerned about her eating habits. she wont eat any of the food i have, except for freezedried bloodworms. (i have pellets and flakes, but no one likes the flakes lol) i definitely dont mind feeding them to her, but i read something about it not being good for them to eat everyday, but just as a weekly treat. so, doi have to buy more varied food to get her to eat something else, or are the worms okay? and if i should get more, what fo you recommend i start with, so i dont end up buying a ton more food my fishies will never eat? (im not sure if it matters, but she is a baby still. and i just recently gave her pellets for the first time, but she just spit them out, even after i soaked them for a while for her.) thanks for your time!
