Assesment of Alpha, my Betta and his home please?
Nerdy name i know :oops:
Alpha - 1 gallon Freshwater fish tank
Anyways this is my Betta fish. He is (i believe) a crowntail red betta male. It looks small because it is only one gallon. By the way does he look ok? (it 10:00 PM in my area so its time for him to sleep if he's not already). I am considering moving him to my 10 or 30 gallons (whatever is cheaper) but I don't know I am not too sure... Any help? If you don't want to click the link here is that picture I wanted "examined"
Your fish looks nice and healthy. He'd probably be happier in a larger container with heat and filtration. I first put my betta, Blue, in a 2 1/2 gallon desktop tank that included the light and filter. I purchased a small heater specially made for small tanks. It was very inexpensive. Some folks will say that a 10g tank is the minimum size for a betta. Mine is in a 10g now; however, that's just because I wanted to do something else with the 2 1/2 and the 10g was available. I haven't seen any noticeable improvement in his appearance, eating, or activity. As a matter of fact, he seemed to explore around more in his old tank. There could be other dynamics going on that I haven't considered. We have some very experienced betta experts here on the site. I'm sure you'll get some good feedback.
Crowntail Red Betta Fish eating - YouTube
video of him eating...does it work?
Awww, the video works fine, Alpha is a cutie!
I agree with Fish Monger, he'd LOVE a bigger tank. Hopefully you'll be able to upgrade him in the near future. For now, I'm thinking he's VERY happy to be out of that tiny cup!
Nice video. He really goes after his food. I love the way they sneak up on it and then pounce.
he's Always Hungry ><
