Ugh the more I work with this tank, the more I hate it. So, it came with this thing that gives off bubbles and changes the color of the lights. I have no gravel so the thing will not stay where I put it and it just keeps floating around. I am about to take it out and have no light in there other than the room light. But, wanted to ask first, do Betta's like the bubbles. The bubble stream can be adjusted, and I have it going pretty high now, but he seems to keep going over there to get some bubbles, it seems.
Then, every time I put my arm in there to make something stay down, water comes out the top. This is not an easy feat, because I have to stand on my desk to reach it.
I thought I had the heater figured out. It was seeming the bubble/light thingy was causing it to think its hot, I don't know, shutting it off. When I moved it, it turned back on. But I cannot get the bubble thingy/light to stay down anywhere cept using the bottom of the heater and wedging it under there. Temp is still around 68 in there.
If the bubles are not necessary and the weird changing light is not necessary, I am going to take it out.
Little stinker he is. I decided to try to feed him pellets again because I read they are better for him. I fed him 3. He takes one, spits it out. Goes to the next one, takes it in, spits it out. Did the same thing to all 3, and did it numerous times. In front of my face. So, took them out and gave him flakes. I have to get some shrimp in a can and try that too. I put my finger in there just still. He came up and tasted me, then ran away. He is so cute.
