My new/first Betta

So, his name is Theta, and i just got him from mejier, they had 4, one of them being dead :( He kept staring at me so i picked him. I was wondering if its ok if he stays in his store container for the next two days while my tank arrives in the mail/is settled in for 24 hours. It is a 2.65 gal so its nice and big for him.

I'm sure two more days in that cup won't hurt him. Just change the water each day and keep him in a warm cozy room. Maybe add more water but make sure he can't jump out.

Congrats on your new fish! I'm sure you'll find the joys of betta keeping are fun and rewarding soon enough c:

I don't think you need to wait for it to settle for 24 hours. Pet shops tell you to, but IMHO it does diddly-squat. I'd put him in as soon as the temperature is right (78-82F). :)
