New to forum

Hi everyone, I am new to the whole Betta Scene. I have been checking out this forum for a while and have learned so much. This is a picture of my new office set up and new Betta. I don't know what kind he is or what to name him. Any ideas? Looking forward to learning even more and getting to know some of you.

Welcome to the forum! ;D You have a very pretty fish there. Judging by the picture he is a male veiltail. I'm not good at identifying colouring. I'm not sure on his name, what kind of personality is he?

Good Luck!

I originally had him in one of those 1/2 gallon decorative tanks but after reading posts here I upgraded to this 2 gallon and added a heater. He hasn't eaten since i got him 5 days ago and is not very active at all. He seems a bit better in the new tank so hopefully he will come around. Any tips on getting him to eat? I use the Betta Bites Pellets.

He look like Mustard gas. I would recommend New Life Spectrum pellet, imo is one of the best pellet for your betta.

He is probably just getting used to his surroundings. :) It can take some bettas 2 weeks to get settled and start eating. Are they Omega One Betta Bites? It's one of the best foods for bettas along with new life spectrum and attison's betta pro. I've heard soaking food in garlic helps getting them to eat . . . I haven't tried it myself, though.

He already looks brighter!
Watch that hole on his top fin, if it gets bigger instead of smaller you may have to start treating it.

Things didn't work out too well for my fish. I found him dead on Monday. Took him back to the pet store with a water sample and they re-inbursed me. I went this morning after finding out they got a new shipment and picked up this little guy. I didn't reallize how close he looks to the first one. Hopefully he won't have the same issues. He already seems more active, just hope he eats somehting.
