Beta Fish...

I won a Beta Fish tonight. I am naming it Alpha because I don't know if it's a man or a woman fish and I think it's ironic. I am also calling its tank, which is in reality just a small glass painted cheaply and talentlessly painted with a flower, "the Octagon". I figure it's a fighting fish, so it's fitting. Does anyone know if I feed it and how often to clean the Octagon? It has a bamboo shoot growing out of it, so I don't know if it's one of those bio-sphere type things or not. Oh, and if someone wants to fish-sit Alpha while I go home this weekend, that'd be great.

Oddly, I've already grown attached to's only been about an hour or so, but uh...I think we're getting along well. I will post pictures when I find my damn camera.

I had a Betta fish for almost 2 years when I was at DLI, and he was still living when I left...gave him to a roommate.

Don't overfeed him, he won't eat it and it'll just make the tank a filthy mess. I usually did it every other day.

The tank should be cleaned every couple of weeks...maybe once a month.

beta fish have suicidal tendancies. my beta fish tried to kill itself...twice. so use cation when cleaning the Octagon, that's when they try to go for it.
