Bettas are very sensitive to their environmental changes in their water. I think he should be in a tank that is at least 2 gallons to have a heater in it successfully. One gallons are know to *over heat* and kill the betta even when its at a stable temp. (Just so you know)
To answer your question with the best possible answer that I could give you though I need to ask one.
What do you mean by "feeding hole"? If there is not a strong current then i suggest not using this feeding hole. Is it a small floating ring that you drop the food in and he has to get it?
hey sorry yea by feeding hole i just mean the opening on the hood of the tank to drop food in,
had no idea the tank could over yet, i have a 7.5w heater in there now and my thermometer reads @ about 84 on most days
its just very weird like sometimes even when i go to feed him now instead of going to the front of the tank and swimming around he will swim in the back ( i think maybe looking at my reflection), them its like he realizes am at the front lol and even then like i said earlier i have drop about 3 pellets right infront of him before he even notices and eats one
