So I went today.. and I guess this can be her introduction thread too. I went today, bought two thermometers and a mini heater.. and left the store without buying any bettas. I was so incredibly proud of myself. But while I was there I saw this little girl and wanted her really badly and had to walk away. Then my mom was like, why didn't you get her? So I turned around, made another trip and picked her up. :3
Her name is Florence, by the way.
But she's having some swimming problems.. she seems pretty perky, swimming about, she ate already too, no visible signs of distress.. but this happens.
I recorded a video, lol.
She swims fine, but when she stops.. her rear floats up. WHICH IS KINDA CUTE, but if it's not supposed to be that way it's probably annoying for her. Is it a behavioral thing or something like swim bladder?
(enjoy my music, lol)
She's currently in a 2 gal QT tank, temperature 78 degrees, I use API Stress coat & conditioner. No decor yet cause I'm currently waiting on some glue to dry on my new terracotta pots (i don't want little betta heads stuck in the bottom holes). I just got her today, too. I feed my bettas Aqueon Betta Pellets and the occasional bloodworm, and she ate a pellet today.
