Post New to Bettas, dont know alot of stuff.

Yesterday I bought a new pet. His name is Oscar and he is a really beautiful orange & white dragon. I dont really know what the Bettas do so...

Sometimes he stays 5 minutes or even more like a rock at the bottom of his aquarium like if he was sleeping, which I think is pretty normal as he swims ALL the day :D

He sleeps in some plastic leaves that I bought him. I will buy him a small castle soon or even a hammock which I would mod.

Would he get scared if I put black clothes around his aquarium? I only sleep at like 12-1Am sometimes.

Thanks alot for helping me, Fieldz.

Hey there! Welcome to the exciting world of bettas :)

Yes, bettas sleep. Sometimes they sleep on leaves or decorations or the ground...depends on your fish's personality :)

Do you mean you'd be using the cloth to imitate nighttime? I don't think it would bother him, as long as you only did it at night.

Exactly what I mean. I think he gets a bit stressed with the lights.

They need a day and night cycle just like humans do, which isn't so great for my fish since i live in alaska. one didn't like the 24 hours of daylight and i think that is why he bit his tail fin off
