New Betta. :)

I got a new betta today. Is it possible that he is just young? He is a rather small crowntail. But all the Crowntails at the Petstore were small today. Sooo are they just little still?

He is gorgeous though!

Black Double Ray Crowntail with Electric Blue accents

Sooo I am going to put him in the Q tank for one month before I add him to my real tank. Is adding a 1/4 tsp per gallon a good idea to ward off any infection / calm him?

I wouldn't, but I don't use salt for anything but ich anyway.


My petstore had a bunch of new small crowntails today too. Which one did you go to?

Petco. I can honestly say minus the fins my female is about the same size. She is two years old though.

Most crowntails, compared to the doubletails at my LFS were very small today.

It's ok

I hope he is ok. He is clamping his fins a lot. I imagine he is just stressed though.

Keep his tank lights off for a day. It will help him not stress.
