Should I use a plastic fork? I'm a little afraid to use stainless steal in case there is some sort of rust I can't see.

I just use a outdated stainless steel set for my fish tanks (don't wanna share my own forks between fish & my own dinner lol) never had a problem. Plastic fork will prop not sink well at all.

Pretzelz, female bettas do best in groups of 4 or more, to spread out the aggression.They also need LOTS of hiding places.

Ok, so I got my betta on Saturday and didn't feed him in case he had already eaten that day and just to give him time to explore the tank. I tried feeding him Betta Flakes on Sunday and he didn't touch them. I went out and got him Aqueon Betta pellets since it seems most feed their bettas pellets. I tried feeding a couple to him last night and again this morning and he hasn't touched any of them. Hedefinitely sees it because one pellet floated right by him and he just stared at it. Should I be concerned that he hasn't eaten at all yet??
P.S. Pictures of the new guy coming soon

Ok, I'm bumping this thread. I tried ghost shrimp about 4 weeks ago but they didn't fair to well. After talking with Angel079, we agreed that although the tank is planted, it might have been too soon for them. I was going to try again (over a month later) but now I'm considering maybe some cories (will peppered cories or albinos work ordo they get too big for a 5g?) or african dwarf frogs. Right now it is the betta and 1 nerite snail. Any suggestions? How many frogs in a 5g bow front with 1 betta and 1 snail? 3? Looking forward to input
