    Do a water change to clean any uneaten food out of his tank. What temperature is this QT tank? How old is the betta? And if you have a water test kit, test the main tank for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    The ghost shrimps take care of the food and I do a small water change every week did one today the qt tank is use the same water from main tank will replace a small amount everyother day, bettas 3-4 years old, I don't have a test kit but with my mosquitofish fry and baby ghost shrimp I think they would show sighns first, and my filter is rated for 60 gallons, plus all my live plants my paremeters should be fine.

    Betta usually live 3-4 years. You've had this betta since you were 6?
