Le Fish Swag - Healthy looking or NO?!

Wondering if the office fish, named Swag, looks healthy or not!? The girl who bought him left for Ecuador and I am in charge of him now...I know nothing of fish. This has been a great and informative site. Does he look healthy?

ALSO-- I added those little jewels to his tank and he seems to see his reflection more and get angry at it. Is that bad? Also also--he loves the warmer water I changed for him!! I am going to buy a little heater for him hopefully. I have no idea how big the tank is, though.

He looks pretty healthy. To keep him that way, make sure you definitely do get a heater! You'll need to find out what size the tank is so that you can get a heater with the correct wattage. :)
You'll also need to do two water changes a week - one 50% change and one 100% change.
I see you have a betta leaf hammock in there - does he have anything else? A plant to play with or a cave to hide in? Bettas are curious fish who really benefit from things to interact with and hide in. :)

Not all of the hammocks will have the metal protruding.. you can ensure it won't by using aquarium silicone at the tips, or if it does start to protrude.

Sorry i dont think i explained myself properly.
What i meant by prodtruding wasnt the metal itself. I meant the little hole underneath the leaf, if u push the leaf properly u can get the rod out of the hole and yank it out. That way u dont need silicone. (This is only from my experiance).
