lol i know i have an air pump somewhere from my old tank that had gold fish when i was like 7. i might try to find it as you said they may go through the bubbles to have fun. i can totally see nova doing that as he is happy as can be.i also think he could be a very trainable fish as you put your finger next the glass the swims over and follows your finger around. but he has yet to fully settle in. i know it takes alot out of you when you are moved somewhere different. Oh yeah and tomorrow when i post pic hopefully can you tell by the looks if he has a little fin rot. iknow he stressed and very young and fins are not full grown but i think he may have a little bit of it but i may be wrong.

well the first night with Nova was great. I woke up to him swiming around really happy. His top fin is going up more and more. throuout the night i checked on him to see where he was sleeping. of course his favorite plant. So do betas always sleep at the surface or not? just wondering because if the do ill get him the leaf hammok. later today ill try to post some pics.

Either get a smaller filter or fix that one.. turning a filter on and off will be harmful as it will push out all the dead/bad bacteria that was gathering in there. Panty hose tied to the intake will help keep his fins out. Also, if you are using a filter, you don't have to clean out the tank that often. Tanks can be too clean just like they can be too dirty. 1 50% water and 1 50% substrate cleaning once a week will be more then enough. Some may even say it's too much and I would do whichever you feel is comfortable. But wouldn't do more then that.

Welcome and good luck with Nova, he sounds like a fun one. Grats on getting the betta bug!

when you go to post reply there is a paper clip image and if you click that it will allow you to browse your computer for images and post them you just have to upload each picture after you select one
