    I have had my Betta, Marco, for around a month and a half now. He is living in a 5.5 gallon tank, water temp around 78 degrees, plenty of plants/places to hide, and a fairly gentle filter (it doesn't seem to bother him, at least). To this date, I have NEVER seen him eat any of the food I put in...

    I bought a betta from Petsmart last night. He's my first fish and i'm worried about him a lot. It just freaks me out how he sometimes stops moving for a few seconds and he won't eat. I would feel awful if he died anyone know what I should do?
