The best info you can give to someone is the following:
they need warm water of 78-80 F
they need clean water so frequent water changes are a must
NO VASES as homes
High quality food like Omega One or New Life Spectrum and some frozen foods
They jump so keep their new home covered
Once you know what size their new home is, you can kind of guide them on how often to change the water. 1 gallon or under, at least twice a week 100%; 2-3 gallons, once a week at least 75%; 3 gallons and up, once a week 50%
Let me know if you need any more info. The sticky is okay but I think we may replace it soon.
i'm rehoming a couple bettas to someone who has fish (but unsure about bettas). i was thinking of using the sticky general betta fish care and faq in the betta fish care section as a betta care sheet to give to them plus the address of this website.
do you think it's good info to use? accurate? it's pretty long so don't want to overwhelm this individual, lol. so thought of using the essential info regarding care and rewriting it in more shorter, brief, but clear way so it's easy to follow.
also, i don't want to steal info from someone else if they wrote something. i would of coarse let them know where i got the info. what do you think? =)
school can definately do so, lol! thank you for offering to take him! he is doing well now, and he's back to his normal little self. after a few days with clean water he eventually came around. he was lethargic. appreciate it. i'm looking around to move right now into an available space with a roommate. i highly doubt a potential roommate would mind if i have a fish, unless they're concerned if i use their kitchen to clean his tank. i'm going to keep the little guy but if something happens where i may give him away (which i hope won't happen), i could message you if its okay? i live in cali btw.
i hope your fish are well!
Hi dbrooke1. School does tend to get in the way of life, doesn't it? Where do you live and would you be comfortable shipping him? Do you think he is well enough to be shipped? Or could you find someone locally?
How is he acting sick? Is he bloated or just lethargic? How big is his tank? For now, clean warm water is one of the best remedies. 4 pellets a day is actually pretty good so I don't think you're underfeeding him.
