Meet my Red Halfmoon Romeo(PICS)

I had first seen Romeo on Christmas eve at the local Petco getting my dog a toy for Christmas. He really caught my eye amid all the rest in their tiny small cups..he even flared at me when I put my finger up to his cup.

I didn't get him that day as I was going out of town for the holiday but I went back the day after Christmas and there he was..I'm guessing his $10 more price tag then the others deterred most from buying him but not me...I had't owned a Betta since I was a kid and have been wanting to get one for a while and knew he was the one!

I had some problems with him first and even brought him back to another Petco..where he sat for two days on the shelf...I was looking for another one during that time and couldn't find one I liked and wound up buying him back as he looked better. I made a thread about it here
http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=89863

I have him in a Aqueon 2.5 gallon...with a slim heater, some black sand, an Amazon sword plant, a bamboo plant and 3 Betta bulbs just starting to sprout. He seems to like the tank but not the filter..I'm getting a Betta log to break up some more of the current. He's eating live baby brine shrimp, betta bites, the occasional pea and seems to be doing great now!

what a gorgeous guy!! i'm really jealous! my HM tailbites so i rarely get to see him at his full potential like your guy.

as for the filter, you could try baffling it since the current seems to be too strong. there's a DIY sticky in the betta accessories thread. also i've heard from some other people on here that feeding peas to your betta is actually bad for them and not good for their digestion like a lot of people think. keep us updated with pics though! oh and fiy, i got my cousin a betta for christmas and she named hers Romeo, too :D

with the incandescent bulb that came with the tank he sees his reflection any time I turn it on...do you think a fluorescent will be better?

I thought peas were good for bloat and to clean them out? I give him a tiny piece about 1x a week.
