All white with a blush color on his tail, perhaps some stress stripes, but did everything the earlier post said about looking for a healthy betta. question!!! what is the least stressful way to get him out of the sorta grose blue water he is in now for the switch?

i try to dump the water out mostly .. and try to get most of the yucky stuff out .. then when there's a little water left .. with a net i then dump the remaining water through with him in the net .. then very quickly put him in his new home ..

if your tank is far from where you do the transfer .. you can take a small container with you .. and fill it with his tank water .. and then put him right in the small container .. then take him to his tank ... and then don't pour him in .. submerse the container under water and let him swim out of the container on his own

Use your hands. That's less stressful than a net and best way of getting him out of the cup. make sure though that you have his cup floating in the tank (and add some of the new tank water to his cup every 10min.) until his cup gets to around the same temp as the tank water. Then just scoop him out (gently! don't go grabbin at him) and let him go in the tank.

if you use ur hands .. make sure you wet them first .. in his tank water .. and don't touch him .. cus that could cause his slime coat to weaken .. i've always used net .. since i don't think fishies like to be touched

OK. I got 2 party cups out poured about 1/4 of blue water in one, added same amount of tank water and put him back in the tank water in his cup, do this process 3 more times? once its almost clear scoop him out and allow him into the tank, am i correct?

Woohoo! So happy for you! A big new nice home for a handsome sounding guy! He sounds adorable and like one I fell in love with recently, all white but a brush of black on his tail (starting from body to a little over halfway down and only in the middle). Can't wait to see pictures of Miami-Ice =)
