    My 3 week old betta has successfully been trained to come to my finger and jump for a bloodworm! So exited for what's to come!!!

    What else will you train it to do?

    That's cool!...please tell me you have a lid tightly secured with all wide spaces (particularly around the filter) covered? If not you can cut out the right shape from a poster board to fit into the spaces. And you might want to tape down the feeding hatch if you have one.

    You put a light floating ball on the surface and some Bettas will bop it around lol.

    Oh I'm sorry!!! I used TSS to cycle mine (although the first bottle failed...) so I got my betta in the first 2 weeks of my tank being set up

    Don't be!
    I never start a new tank without it. It's only failed me once, because I used it too soon after dosing Prime, but that was my fault. Even with TSS you should watch the fish closely, which is how I noticed my mistake. I find it indispensable!
