I thought I'd give you all a tour of my 3 tanks;
This is Dangerous' TopFin 5 gal.

This is Angel's new Aqueon 2.5 gal.

And this is Chili's new Aqueon 2.5 gal.

They all have been decorated to match their personalities. Dangerous is my fun mellow boy, Angel is very bubbly, and Chili is very feisty.

When I got Chili I had him on my bedside table and noticed Dangerous being very sluggish and sad, I thought he was on his last leg. When I realized that Chili was uncomfortable in his large 5 gal. I decided to get a stand and a 2.5. The day after I move Chili over beside Dangerous he perked up! All he wanted was to have his new friend beside him. Chili doesn't even flair at him!! <3

So, as many of you have seen, I welcomed my sweet King Betta Oscar into my life Friday, as I said in my other thread, he had been there a while and I just kept thinking 'if he's still there I know he's supposed to be mine' While bringing him home he lost his color and got clamped fins, but as soon as I got him home and sat him down on the counter he perked up! He's doing swimmingly now, coming to the front when I'm in the room and flexing his cute little tail and 'blowing kisses' at me! I'm so happy I bought him!!

Angel's fins have gotten shorter, so much so I've been calling him my 'half-Halfmoon' I think I'm going to try and put something up by his tank to block his view of Dangerous, that could be the reason. I did change his decor and am getting a new smaller sponge filter in hopefully tomorrow (Oscar took his because it's meant more for a 5 gal. tank) I sure hope I can get him to stop, it looks terrible.

Chili seems to be letting his fins grow back out and they look fantastic! He's so much happier in his small tank, he's due for a water change Next Sunday!

Dangerous is very happy! But seems a bit mopey and it might be because he can't see Oscar his new friend, I'm hoping to get him up on another small shelf. Dangerous is due for a water change in a few weeks too. I usually do a WC for him on the 15th of every month but I might need to move it up to the week before because I did an early WC last time because of him being all sad because Chili wasn't beside him. Silly fish!

I got a good flair session out of Angel and Chili, I also flared Oscar to see what he'd do and I scared him a little. I knew I should have waited. But he sure is pretty!
Here are the results!
Angel:

and this one I just loved!

Chili:


and a new one of Oscar:

He's actually blue on one side, and green on the other. You're seeing his green side!

Your boys are so handsome! :D

May I make a suggestion? It looks like you've got a couple of fin nippers. My Mace is one, too. I bought a small carton of aquarium salt from Petco, and I dose his water with it whenever I notice new nips. :3 It helps them heal. A lot of users (myself, included) believe in periodically dosing with AQ salt as a preventative, as well.

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for that suggestion! I'm so sad that Angel has started biting (he's my affectionately named 'half-Halfmoon Betta )
I have found this AMAZING Tropical/Saltwater fish store that carries cartons of Aquarium Salt so I think I'll buy some if it'll help. How much should I use and for how long? He's in a 2.5, Chili hasn't bit in a while *knocks on wood* and they are finally growing out! If the salt will help promote healing.

You're going to get a lot of different answers regarding how often to dose. xD; Personally, I try to once a month. If I notice Mace biting, then I do so more frequently. The carton directions will tell you 1 tblsp/10 gallons, but I, as well as a few other users, do it per 5 gallons. A little math is require for smaller tanks, but half of a tablespoon would be good for a 2.5 gallon.

Ok, my tanks only go up to 5 gallons, and the residents don't bite thankfully. So I should do a 10 day treatment (according to what I've read here about AQ salt) and do that once a month? I'll probably start chili's on Sunday after his water change.
