    Glass surfing in itself isn't that bad. He's just getting used to his new surroundings. But if he's rubbing on things then keep an eye on him because it could mean parasites.

    Turning off the filter for more than 6 hours kills off your good bacteria but since your filter is so new, it doesn't have any bacteria so it's safe to turn it back on. But if you turn off an established filter and all the bacteria dies, then when you turn it on the dead bacteria is dispersed into the water where it creates ammonia.

    Yup, it's by the number of posts you make. :)

    I know a lot of people have the little Spongebob pineapple decorations. If you are worried about sharp edges, you can just sand them down like you suggested. Otherwise, everyone I know of seems happy with them.

    A bacteria bloom happens in tanks that have just been set up and are going through the cycling process OR if you seriously overfeed your tank, which shouldn't happen with just one betta. It's literally a cloud of microscopic bacteria. The best way to get rid of it is to do a water change and cut back on feedings and turn the tank light off for a day or two.

    No, don't boil gravel or rocks, they could explode. Just rinse them well with hot water and they'll be fine. :)

    I can't post links here but go to google and search for "firemouth flaring" and then click on the images option. A bunch of cool pics will come up.

    Hmm, a lot of other male fishies flare but none of them are really known for flaring the same way bettas are. There's a type of cichlid called the firemouth who has red on his chin and underbelly and on his gill covers, as well as a big black spot on each gill cover. When he flares, it makes his head look twice as big and the black spots look like eyes.

    Some fish just have weaker immune systems due to mass breeding.. as long as you are giving them the best, there isn't much else you can do to prevent illnesses.
