    I want to know if my lil sapphire is looking normal for a veil tail betta. I just got him yesterday and he is in their with a few snails in a 10 gallon. 20180424_211446.jpg20180424_211502.jpg20180424_211524.jpg

    Was very hard to take since I have salvinia in the tank and he kept on hiding but here it is. I got him yesterday so I only feed him some flake food yesterday day and today tried to feed freeze dried bloodworms but they were too big so I gave him a pinch of freeze dried brine shrimp.

    Everything looks to be fine, nothing serious but I must inform you he is quite bloated. If you are feeding freeze dried I strongly recommend soaking the food for 2-4 minutes and squeezing out any air before feeding. For now I’d fast him a day then offer a small price of a deshelled pea squished up with some soaked food. Repeat the deshelled pea method until you see that he has passed something greenish and he should no longer be bloated and you should taper the pea feeding to as much as once per week or as little as once per month. Some people choose to fast their betta once per week to allow the digestive tract to fully digest food from the previous few days. Going forward I’d look into some food that is higher in fiber.

    Ok, thank you very much for the help.
