    Good evening Old Fish Lady. I'm new to the forum and after spending hours I see you are a good resource. If you have a moment can you please look at my post and tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Sometimes you have to starve to them to get them to eat what you want....hold food for a few days and try again.....only offer the food you want him to eat and once he eats it good for a few days...then you can offer him treats....

    Hey OFL! I recently bought a young halfmoon betta 2 days ago. He is doing fine at his tank. The problem is, he won't eat hikari pellets and Atison Betta Pro pellets. When I first dropped them in the tank, he ate the first one but spits out the second one. Then the next time I dropped a pellet he will swim up to it and then swim away ignoring it. I know that he is fed tubifex worms at the fish farm before. All my bettas eat the pellets when I dropped them for the first time to eat. But this young halfmoon doesn't eat them. He likes the live daphnia I gave him. How do I get him to eat the pellets? He is about 3.5cm-4cm in length and I can tell that he is quite young.

    From everything ive read your very knowledgeable on everything betta related. I was wondering if you could check out my thread if you have time. My girl isnt acting herself and seems to be less active as the day moves on. Its labeled "floating butt" in the diseases section.

    Pew-6500k is more like natural sunlight and aquatic plants can use this range the best for energy....its a standard kelvin for aquatic plants regardless of tank size, plant needs.... etc.....

    inkrealm-I am not sure I understand what you are asking...have you made a thread on this with the needed information...I will look for your thread on this...but generally-if the fish is acting fine overall with an occasional dart and no other symptoms....I wouldn't worry but keep an eye on things....

    thanks :D he darts funny sometimes but doesn't seem in distress per say, just odd, which they often are with their personalities ><
    no stress streaks or lack of eating though. greatly appreciated :)

    Hey, OFL! Hope things are well.

    I had a question about lighting, because I saw a post of yours about it.
    My 10w tubular florescent light in my 5 gallons are 6500K. I have both light loving and low light loving plants (anubias, etc) in my tank.

    For my light lovers, is 6500K a good rating for 5 gallons? Thanks, OFL! <3
