Ahhh you guys are way too nice!! But thanks
As for the Marine Betta idea, you're tank is definitly big enough IMO
! So you're good there. Now, the problem is finding one. Good job on passing up on the small one. I imagine it'd be cute as heck lol, but probably really tough to get eating. These fish are notoriously picky.
Dont worry though. With a little dedication, some wet arms (from hand feeding), and the proper feeding, it CAN be done!! Eventually they will gobble up food like i imagine Dino over here does at Thanksgiving
So, what i suggest is searching for a bigger one, and making sure it'll eat at the store.
Next, get yourself some good frozen food. Mine oved mysis, until i switched to a homemade recipe. You can find that on my thread also.
Next....and the hardest part...be patient! They will hide a lot at first. A lot. Almost to the point where you start to get angry about having an invisible 60-100 dollar fish!! But patients is a virtue is it not? Eventually it will get very comfortable and be out a lot. Granted, mine only comes out for a few fleeting seconds when the lights are fully on a couple times a day, but in the evening mine is always out in about. They realy are amazing and worth it IMO
Anyway, i suggest you get one and treat it tenderly. Eventually it will turn into something you can really be pround of!! I know i loe mine and am happy i can keep Mema alive
For refence, Kio and CleverB's also have bettas
Betta clan...UNITE!! Lol!!!
