So I got a new betta as mine currently died, pretty sure she was a juvenile, and just didn't make it
I am new to owning bettas! So I got some help on here about the tank setup and such.
Currently my new guy, Firefly, is in a Marina 1.77 Gallon Aquarium until I can eventually upgrade! I have a heater in there, thermometer, water pump that really doesn't do much, a rock bridge with hiding spots, a seashell as well as a plant. His tank is at about 73 degrees Fahrenheit. I have had him since Saturday, and have had the heater in there since yesterday! As I didn't know I needed a heater
Problem is, he isn't eating and seems very skittish! Is this normal? The reason I initially picked him is because he was very active in his cup and flared up at me when I put my finger up to the cup at the pet store. I have Wardely Betta Pellets and tried to give him 1 last night, which he didn't eat.
