I just got my first Betta fish the other day as an early Christmas present, and I am a little concerned about a few things.
He seems to be happy in the tank he is in, there is a little cave for him and two artificial plants and still plenty of room.
I am not home a lot of the day, and I worry about him always being in the dark. Is this okay?
I have been feeding hime freeze-dried bloodworms. I am going to go within the next two days and get some other food such as frozen brine shrimp,plankton, and so on.
My main questions here is how much should I be feeding him ad how often, and how often should I do a water change? I got him on tuesday night. I already have to change the water because my little sister put way too much food in there today and I can't fish all of it out. I will most likely do a 35-40% water change. Also, I fed him tuesday night, wed. at noon, wed. at 10 pm ish, and my little sister fed him around 3:00 pm tday. (est)
My boyfriend has a cichlid tank, so I know of no one who can help me with "Squishy" so I appriciate all of your help.
