- Hey i want to add something. Make sure you explain about betta acclimation. Some people don't realized it. You don't want to stress your betta with drastic temp change.
And like Sakura wrote they like to jump so if they don't have a lid to cover the tank make sure they leave space between the water level and the tap of the tank , and when they couch them with a net or lure him with a cup make sure they cover it with a hand
Also very big problem that i have with a few people that i introduced to bettas is that they overfeed them.
Don't let the food sink to the bottom of the tank, always removed uneaten food. Explain that it will discompose and contaminate the water.
- don't want to bother you. =) right after i sent you a profile msge thought of posting a thread. so......
hmmm......other bettas are doing okay and are relatively happy. rehoming them. keeping the one guy recovering from fin rot long term. i'd take a pic of him and give an update.
although, reaggrivated injured ankle/back. work injury so am on disability. not walking around, doing any lifting, or driving right now since last week. it's quite an adventure, lol!
fish who i'll call fantasia (name him after 'fantasia') is currently in 5gal. no bueno, lol! my other tanks are at mom's place so will ask her to bring a smaller tank to keep him in while i'm recuperating. will keep him in bathroom and do water changes on bathroom counter by sink while i sit on a stool. hoping this plan will work out. =)
hope you're having a great beginning of the week! =)
- i'm rehoming other bettas to mom's neighbor who has pet fish (but don't know about bettas). so, am thinking of typing together a betta care sheet. i'm thinking of using some info from the sticky general betta fish care and faq from betta fish care section and add a few recommendations for a few fish products in there. although, its pretty long so don't want to overwhelm this individual, lol. going to make it more brief, easy to read, and as accurate i can according to my knowledge. thinking of using the type of layout from a betta care sheet at petco.com. some of their info is innacurate (grrr), although i'll just use the lay out. i msged sakura8 to see if its okay to use info from a sticky here as long as i include where and who info is from. don't want to take someone's work and want to give them full credit.
