I have a new betta fish in a 1 1/2 gallon bowl, yes it was going to be in a larger one, but alas, i had a nice tank for it, and it ended up not holding the water i bought for it, and i had this on hand, but everything has been cleaned and disinfected and all. and when i can afford a new tank it will get one.
So anyways, i just bought a betta, i don't remember what kind, but it has the tail that is not all attached, it flows kinda... does that make any sense?
His name is Sushi
I have a plastic plant that i put in it, bc it won't be in enough sunlight for a live one.
But when i got him i knew he was going to be rather agressive, they had two of the cups next to eachother and he was flaring up at the one next to him.
So i floated him for a while, and he stayed at the bottom of the tank for a bit, i think he was in shock, and then he stays in the plant now. i have him a little flake food, and he wasn't hungry, and then he took after a flake that had sunk and started to dig up the gravel... but then knocked it off.
Is any of this unusual? or is this all ok? (i am a new tank owner) also, other than getting a bigger tank, is there anything i need to know about Bettas?
