Thread: New Betta

  1. Default New Betta

    I'm putting him in a 10 gallon with 3 ADFs.

    I ordered him from Live Aquaria and the shipment was delayed a day. His head is completely black- is that ammonia burn or is that just how he looks?

    Can you get pics of him posted here?...may just be his natural coloration, why would you think ammonia burn?

    Your 10 gallon is cycled, correct?

    I'm trying to get a good picture, but he's still in the bag being acclimated. I probably took around 10 pictures on a Galaxy S3 and they're all bad...

    And yes, my tank I cycled. 0 both in ammonia and nitrite, less then 10 ppm nitrate.

    That's a relief. :)
    I'm probably just being paranoid with him being in the mail for an extra day.

    Not where I live... There's a Petco and 2 Petsmart's less then 1/2 hour away. The nearest LFS is over an hour away.
    I was at one of the Petsmart's getting frozen food before I placed my order and I saw a poor boy with really bad fin rot. I was tempted to get him, try to nurse him back but I know it would be better if I didn't. Still feel kind of bad..

    Yeah I agree, natural colors. If it was ammonia burn and it was bad enough to blacken his face, I'm pretty sure he'd be dead.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.
