Well I went to petsmart to look at all the bettas. I picked the one I did because he has good color, plus he was actually kind of playful just in the cup, compared to the others so I got him for $5.99. The pictures aren't the best because we was exploring once he got in the tank so he was moving quite a bit. I put a couple of my cichlid pellets in the tank and he put them in his mouth then spit it out. Don't know if he just wasn't hungry or he doesn't like them or what. I'm going to try some blood worms later tonight, I know he'll love those.
Since it seemed like a lot of the things people told me were about tank setup, i'll tell you mine.
I have a powerfilter, set on lowest current because I know they don't like current. I have tons of corkscrew val and other plants that come over the top of the water, so they are basiclly floating plants, plus I got some red-root floaters on the way so he will love those aswell. I have a 50W heater that heats the water around 76-80 degrees. No higher or lower. He has plenty of plants to hide in, my mom couldn't even find him earlier he was hiden well. It's a 5G tank, i'm going to start running an airstone at night for him since I have Co2
going into the tank.
If anything seems wrong or you still want to tell him somethings to know, i'll appreciate it.
Here are the pictures:
I'll have better pictures later on when he calms down a bit, when he is done exploring.
