I have new betta baby that we adopted a few days ago. My 5 year old grandson named him Tony Stewart(most all his stuffed animals are named this also
) until we are able to determine his sex.
We have a 10 gallon tank that is divided for our 2 adult male bettas, Norman and Rico. I have this tank set at 80 degrees. But I did read that the juvies need a slightly higher temp.
Tony is in a 2 gallon tank and his preset heater failed yesterday and was keeping his tank at a steady 84. So I rushed out and got an adjustable one.
I was wondering if this was a good temp for him? Should it be slightly higher or lower?
Also, just wanted to be sure I was feeding him the correct variety of food. He gets a rotation of NLS small fish formula pellets, frozen bbs, daphnia and blood worms. He eats like a pig and then begs for more. I feed him 3 times a day.
Thanks ahead of time for any input!
