He's still hanging in their Julee! I let him chill in the dark last night after I got him set up so he didn't get too stressed on top of everything else. He was hanging out on the bottom when I get up for work this morning, but going up for air, etc. it would appear that one side of his gills suffered more damage than the other so we'll see how that goes. I actually just got off the phone with my boyfriend who said he thinks he looks a bit better than yesterday and seems to be spending more time near the top of his tank.

What does everyone recommend for filtration? I had my last beta in a heated, filtered 5 gallon and he really seemed to like it but the filter was too strong and was not adjustable.

Lupin's tank doesn't have a filter. Berta's tank has a... smallworld? Maybe? Something I bought at Walmart for like $6.

Previously, he had a Whisper filter that came with his tank, and I put it on low. I just found it was too large/took up too much room.

You can always baffle more powerful filters as well!

Check out sponge filters, you can adjust how many bubbles they produce really easily.

*huge iphone pictures, sorry!*

I picked this halfmoon up from PetSmart the other day. He is super pretty, I wish I could get a good picture of him. I'll try to get some better ones when I get a black background for my tank, because right now it's in front of a mirror, so pictures look awful. I have no idea what his color is called. He's a really pretty shade of blue with a white/red edge on his tail and red pelvic fins.

Thanks! I am going to look now . We got my son a Betta for his birthday last month and between that and this thread I have figured out what to do with the 20 gallon left over from when my Hermit Crab kicked it a couple months ago.

You guys made me want bettas! I ended up getting two makes and a female . And I set up 2 more tanks to keep everyone safe as well. I put a 20gal up and moved my Kribensis into it with my one gourami because they are all mean jerks lol. So that this little guy will be able to grow his tail back:

He has a spade tail and he is just freaking cute.

And then I saw this guy and gal and had to have them, so I set up my 5gal for them...at midnight when I got home from the city, lol.
