Betta

Post by Aura on Thu Feb 09, 2012 1:57 pm

I picked up a sad looking betta in a cup the other day. I have a small 2.5 gallon tank that I'd been dumping extra cherry shrimp babies that were getting sucked up when cleaning another tank. He's changed a bit over the past week.

When I first brought him home.


A couple of days later.




There are no more shrimp babies. silent

it's sad to se them at stores in little cups. I'm going to 'rescue' one or two today since I have spare tanks... Do you have any info to share on their upkeep?

Not really; I haven't kept any for a long while. I used to keep them when I had community tanks and they always did okay that way. What I do know is that they are much easier to keep healthy in a tank with some filtration and heat.

I'm probably going to move this guy to a 10 gallon, but he's quarantined right now and he's so small that this 2.5 seems big. I know it's better than a cup!

This one was labeled as a Dragon Scale.

Post pics when you get yours. thumbs up
