Hank Moody won't eat.
There is more food sitting at the bottom of his bowl than I have ever witnessed him eat...gotta go look up the eating habits of bettas.

that's what moms fish did. it will die. the food in the bottom of the bowl will also throw off the water balance, so you should take it out. did you put water conditioner in?

accck! no dieee no dieeee!! ya i turkey baste it out...and yes i conditioned the water...im hoping its too cold in the house 4 him and i will move him under a lamp tonight to warm him up and see if he improves...apparently they like it well over 72 degrees and my house is not near that warm!

Maggie said...

yes, they prefer warm and non moving water. ours is doing really well with the regular temperature around here (18 all day and 19 over night).
