I am looking forward to making friends here, and I hope to learn more about the Beautiful Betta fish. I have three very young Betta males I got about six weeks ago. Captain Dragon Star (he is also a Columbian) Saphire Moon (a Half Moon) and M.G. Peacock (a Mustard Gas).
They all have their own 3-gallon, bare-bottom, aquariums with plants (Anubius Nana, Hornwort, and Anacharis). There is no filter so they have 100% water changes every day. The water temperature, pH, and other water parameters are the same as the old water. I use SeaChem Neutral Regulator with a pH buffer (SeaChem's Discus Buffer) to keep the pH at 6.8. There is no heater in the tank, but the fish room has a heater to keep the temperature above 72 degrees, usually 77 degrees.
My question is about M.G. Peacock...
M.G. is almost constantly trying to swim past the confines of his aquarium, looking desperate to swim further.
He is kept under the same conditions as my other two Bettas. Any ideas as to why? Will he calm down?
Thank you for any input on the matter!
