good news is I got him (hes unnamed still) a 2 gal...hope that will hold him for a while. also the temperature rest assured is a stable 85+...i plan on doing 50-70% water changes at least every twos days if possible, i have a bathroom in my bedroom so not going to be a problem. i do have a couple more questions though before i finish with this thread, you guys have been so helpful!
-Food: I bought betta flakes (couldnt find guppy ones) and I’ve been trying those and the freeze dried blood worms, neither has been appealing to him so far...he completely ignores it. They were apparently feeding him gold fish flakes before, could that be why?
-I’ve had him with my hornwort, and at first he seemed confused by it? Like hed bump into it and it seemed to scare him...not sure if this is normal as bettas dont react to plants that way but everyone here has assured my that hornwort should be great? I’ve also noticed him eating it, and read that guppies do eat plants? Is that right? Is that okay? Could that be why he isnt that interested in food?
-Are guppies as “smart” as betta fish? I use “smart” loosely of course, but All Ive seen so far is a lot of very quick swimming and watching me...is that normal behaviour?
I really hope he lives, I mean, he survived for what I can only guess was quite a few months in that swamp he was in. Less than a liter of water, with probably “monthly” water changes...just awful. For those asking the experiment was on “ecosystems” apparently (or so my mom told me). But there was nothing else alive in his tank??? What kind of “ecosystem” is that?
Will post better photos soon!
