I picked Edward up from walmart he was the best looking of the ones they had there he is a bright red with a hint of purple and long flowing fins! i let him float in his cup in his new home (10g tank) for 30 mins and slowly added some of the tank water to his cup to get him acclimated when the time was up i slowly released him into his new home! it was so fun watching him check everything out he would around to each decor and kind of be like he was pointing and his tail was flowing he did that to each one. it was funny to watch..
11 Hours ago i posted a video of Edward swimming because i had concerns on his swimming behavior even though he was swimming in other areas of the tank he seemed to stay to the back of the tank and swim back and forth repeatedly so i posted in the Betta Care section and was told about the filter baffle so i made one and it has worked tremendously! Edward is swimming in other areas of the tank now and isn't doing the back and forth tank as much as he was so i think slowing down the flow of the filter has helped him alot!

I woke up and turned the tank light on and said good morning to Edward i noticed he has started making a bubble nest and he came to greet me at the top of the tank. i threw in some bloodworms and he stared at it for a minute and he grabbed on to it but he didnt eat it i think it was too big. i put in some pelleted food but he wouldnt eat it either.. hoping for more progress on eating tomorrow!! it really got me excited to see him going after the bloodworm. i was cheering him on! "go edward you can do it" lol ah the little things in life!
