Is he still in the ornament or was it just for a short time for Christmas? You did do a good job making it. A very unique idea! And must have been pretty neat to have a "live" christmas ornament!
I got my bettas for free from a woman that was struggling with their health. The female was in a 1 gallon bowl and the two males each had there own 2.5 gallon bowl. They were "depressed" and only swam around when someone approached the bowls. One is still in the bowl (until we get the bigger tank set up) but the other two have been moved to community tanks(2 different tanks) and I can tell you from personal experience, they are bran-new fish! Happily swimming around the tank and built up there muscular structure and are healthy as a tick on a bloodhound!
If you can do it, definetely move him into a community tank (of course with non-fin-nipping fish) and you will be delighted to see how he moves around and how much brighter his colors will get! Awesome!
Anyway! Thanks for sharing your beautiful ingenuitive Decoration!
