My betta is doing very well now!
He's FINALLY eating. He loves his dried blood worms A LOT. I heard that you should only feed blood worms occasionally. He also seems to really like his pellets (after I soften them up with a bit of water from the tank. He hates these betta flakes I bought for him, though. What else should I make part of his diet?
I think he recognizes feeding time now. He seems to stay at the top of the tank when I open the lid, just cruising slowly, looking for food.
After planting the Egeria/Elodea, I will change out 25% of the water again. I've decided to do this every other day.
The Egeria/Elodea came with Golden Mystery Snails. I have no idea how many went in when I put the plant in (after rinsing it as well as I could and dipping it in treated water).
I hope to keep at least one Mystery Snail in the tank, because I find them very interesting. I will probably destroy the rest of them once they're visible. Suggestions on this development?
I put in a single 10 Watt flourescent bulb to help the plant out. I think I'll put in the second bulb, since it looks very silly with just one side of the tank lit up.
Mostly, I want to know about these snails. If anyone has any insight into them, then it'll sure help me out.
