Lol well I guess Ollie is just one picky eater, I've tried giving him the freeze dried blood worms that I gave Hank, he doesn't show any interest in them. Maybe I can cut a thin slice off then cut that in half. Makes it so the frozen food lasts longer, lol. Because when I had Hank, he had two tank buddies, so I just used a whole cube. Sigh, oh well.
Ollie doesn't like pellets :( I put two in his tank, he tried eating one, but then spit it back out and didn't attempt to eat them again. He seems to only like the frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp. And as far as the frozen stuff goes, how do I get a small enough amount for just Ollie? I think the amount I've been giving him is too much, I try and cut off a small piece from the cube but once I defrost it in water, it seems like a lot.
That they are! :) Thanks a lot - I'd be lost if I didn't have your help on stuff like this. You said earlier you mini cycle every time you have a hurricane - when you guys get hit hard down there - do you have to put your fish in a special place or are they usually okay in their normal tanks?
Oh okay. Well I tried to have a frog as his tank mate :( I guess he's just super territorial, he kept nipping at the poor little guys leg. I ended up just taking the frog back. Ollie is a big meany, lol.
Well I'm definitely trying to kept his water clean, the last couple of days I've done a whole clean, and two or three partials because of everything that's been going on. Is his tail fin going to stay permanently split now that it's just split all of a sudden?
Do bettas ever live to be healthy fish, it seems like they're really sensitive to getting infections and such? I would really hate this to be my starting point into getting into fish, just death after death of betta. Not that Ollie is dying, but of course I really don't know, Hank dying made me sad and yeah, I just don't want to keep going through this when not even having them for very long.
