If he makes it i'll be so happy! I'm rooting for him!
Well he doesn't seem bothered with slightly more water just goes a bit higher on the thermometer. He doesn't really bother to try and move that much apart from when he wants to get air, or I disturb him.Cool. How's he doing in the little more water?
Yes Thankyou I think so too, when he first came home he kept wanting to sit lie body curled slightly, but when I think about it he was in a round tall tank that had a centre divider making a section halfmoon shaped, a betta each side. it must have only been a gallon tank at most divided for two. But he only really had a smooth curved glass wall to lean on, I wonder if he is now gradually uncurling as he seems to be straightening out more.Looks like he's doing better already! Keep up the great work, he's a gorgeous fish!
Yes I am thinking along the same lines I was wondering if he might like a betta hammock. But I am also a little worried to add stuff in the bottom as he kind of needs a bit of speed and a run up before he gets lift off to surface if he is sat on the bottom. When sitting on the thermometer he just moves up slightly to surface and slides back down.Maybe you could put some smooth, flattish rocks in there for him to lounge on? Just to give him more resting spots than the thermometer.
This was really kind of you.
I don't think we get them over here, I have never seen any for sale, but that would be great, although I am not sure how he would cope with the raised water level needed for it to float. I have no idea what a curler is?I was thinking you really may want to put a floating cave in there. I have both the diy mesh caves, as well as well as the innards of a curler (weird huh?) in mine. The curler is just one of those plastic curlers with the stiff fuzzy stuff on the outside, with the fuzzy stuff ripped off and just the plastic bones left. It makes a perfect little floating cave for my fish that is a bad swimmer to rest in near the top. As you add water, he's going to need something near the top to rest on.
(I saw Lir sleeping in his and it reminded me that would be perfect for your guy)
Thanks for that, yes that makes sense, we have loads of hair care shops, that sell pretty much everything hair, so something I can look into getting for him.I think they mean a hair curling roller. The big plastic things you put in your hair for a perm XD
Correct me if I'm wrong!
