    Ugh.... what's wrong with him now?!?

    In my case, I decided it was time to take the tank down, separate all the gravel/sand, and other items, and start again. Oh, did I say, First, find a suitable, temporary, home for your Betta?

    Why is my amano constantly fanning?

    I will offer a guess. I notice that the front appendages move when this behavior is seen. The quick movement of the back appendages creates a water flow that draws particulates and organisms from front to back, past the shrimp's mouth. A way to 'strain' food and eat without having to move...

    @DIYbetta Excellent. Thank you, I wanted a set up that was simple, and reasonably priced. It works like a charm!

    Perry received an upgrade to his Aqueon Mini/Bow. His new habitat is brighter, more open, and larger. He now has 5 gallons to roam.

    I did some research into names for Bettas. Feel free to consider any of them.

    Thank you, kindly. What can I say? My mother raised me right. I made a request to enter. Then again, a vampire must be invited in, as well.

    How Attached Are They To Us?

    I too am a big believer in pre-soaking freeze dried food. Pellets too. It also helps me be patient, in order to avoid over feeding my Betta. He has no idea what “all things in moderation” means.

    Sleepy Betta... What Is Wrong?

    Shrimp are expensive. My Ghost Shrimp (now, really ghosts) were $2 each, for 10. Most were small and medium. A few were large. Regrettably, I am not trying on adding to Perry’s habitat. Not unless I upgrade to a larger tank.

    Sleepy Betta... What Is Wrong?

    @Carolyn Underwood even though he may be lonely, he is not really alone. Thanks to you.

    Sleepy Betta... What Is Wrong?

    It is possible that he is getting more comfortable with this environment, and he is all settled in. I bought my boy Perry a toy that perked up his interest. It is a floating plastic ball, with a mirror attached, which hangs underwater. Perry enjoys flaring, and posturing, to show the intruder...
