Introducing my new Betta boy:;f Just got him today (cup boy) from petco. He is in a 10 gallon tank with 2 snails that hitched in on a plant and he has only nudged one once or twice. I rehomed my goldfish to a 20 gallon finally so the tank was already established for about 1 year or so. Hes moving slowly. Out of curiosity I gave him 1 Hikari betta pellet and he ate it. Hes watching me intently as he explores his new home. This is my first betta and he is quite interesting. His colors are beautiful, he is deep blue in the face and gradually gets lighter. His fins look turquose with some red depending on the way the light hits. Once I get to know him, I will give him a better name than lil boy blue. I have seen him at the bottom of the tank a few times, is this normal:;dk and sometimes it looks like his side fins are going fast:;dk. How long does it take for them to realize they are not still in those horrible cups??
