Hi! Thank you!
Sorry it took me so long to respond- I just saw this!
I had to put Digger in a small tank. He started glass surfing and biting his tail in the big tank...His fins start growing back, then he bites again, lets them regrow a bit, then bites again. I'm trying to figure out what it's going to take to get him to stop. Any suggestions are welcome! Mommy's little monster!
I'm good on the water change/filter stuff. I've been reading nonstop since I got Digger...and now I have two more. The betta bug has bitten me.
I have already invested all I can afford to and even more on this set up. It seems the water change you suggest are a lot if yuo mean to do all that weekly... I am baffeling the filter to reduce flow. I can n ot do so many water changes... that is why the filter... I dont think it can hurt...
Thank you for your concern. :)
Unfortunately I don't have the male betta anymore. I do however have one guppie and one female betta. The betta sometimes chase the guppie but she ignores him. I also have the bottom feeder in there but he has never gotten out of hiding since I got him. It's like he doesn't like the LED light that's in the tank.
thanks, i got a half moon from Petco on Saturday. He is a fiesty orange red with flourescent scales and some fin highlights. he flared when i put the cup next to other betta. since the water in the cup was clear and there were no droppings/food, i guessed it must be a new arrival, so i grabbed him. however, i thought he costs $4.99 and got a sticker shock when i checked out at the cashier. i was too embarrassed to say "i pass" and he gave me the "eye" so i complied and paid. i am thinking on following names: Flare, George, Gus...maybe stick with Fred, IDK...
