Hello! This is Kaini, FORMERLY Ebony-Feathers.

I like to draw and write, sew, paint, and many other things. I tend to be 'pretty good' at a lot of things but never awesome at one thing.

I'm a huge fan of Tron, Wall-e, Disney movies, Transformers Prime, Star Trek (favorite being Deep Space Nine)
I play; Portal 2, Team Fortress 2, Pokemon, various RPGs.

Just thought I'd offer one more picture ^^ 
Here he is, showing his fins proudly and you can actually see how rich his 
body is. I'll probably put one more picture on y account since he's just so easily

Kai! I got my betta a couple of days ago. I made sure the tank was healthy first and got myself a heater. 

He's soooo cute and beautiful. And silly ^^ know how it's a rule that the filter has to have a low input/output? My filter has a low input, so it doesn't suck on his fins, but it's output is a little strong. It'll push him around some and to be completely honest, I think he likes it. He swims against it with his little fishy might and weaves and twists in the made me worried so I turned it off. He started seeking it out after that and does it every time the filter is plugged in ^^ I think he's playing. 

If it were scaring or stressing him out, he'd be hiding, and showing stress lines right? When I come over, he does a little excited dance, even if he isn't hungry and follows me around the tank enthusiastically. 

Here's a picture of him ^^…

How cute! What a lovely little guy.

It's not a hard set rule that the filter has to have a really low output- as long as he's not stressed by it, it's fine. As long as he can still move freely about the tank, don't worry about it at all!

Unfortunately I really have to encourage you to return the diamond tetra - they're a schooling/shoaling species, and NEED a group of 6-8 individuals to thrive. Otherwise they're continually stressed - schooling fish need those numbers. As you know, stress can kill fish and he won't last long by himself.

A school of diamond tetra also need at least a 20 gallon tank - 3.5 is far too small for such an active fish.

e__e Ye, we were planning on giving him back. The girl at the store recommend him so we got him. 
When we get the chance to, we'll probably return him and get a couple of bottom-feeding shrimp instead. 
I thought it was weird that she would suggest a schooling fish for a small tank in the first place. 

Thanks again for all your input. If I get better lighting I'll get a picture of him in his little holding
vase. It's a little bubble shaped vase that I'll put him in to clean his tank and do his water changes so all the noise and 
movement won't freak him out. I put him in it today to bring him downstairs. It excites him and he does his happy dance...
that is before intently watching everything around. He really is the boldest little thing.

I put him back after about ten minutes to make sure he was ok ^^ Still no signs of stress. He just wiggled at me and
bit at bubbles kicked up by the filter.

Hello there ^^ I searching Betta on dA I found your lovely betta cups and care sheet. 
I suppose it is to my understanding that you love(or at least enjoy) these fish, seeing as you so willingly answer betta questions. 

I understand if you have a life and cannot get to me right away, I won't be upset...must I must know. I'm going to be getting a 3 gallon tank for a new betta, and was wondering if you knew if tank cycling was necessary for a single fish. Everywhere I see that people cycle 3.5 gallons and up, but I haven't had anyone to ask. 
Kai-ni Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hello! I'm happy to answer betta questions!

Yes, tank cycling is 100% necessary to keeping fish, and the tank must be cycled before you get the animal.

'Cycling' refers to the buildup of beneficial bacteria in the filter media that keeps the fish safe from it's own wastes. Fish create ammonia when they breathe, and ammonia is toxic to them. The cycle consumes that ammonia and turns it into nitrite then nitrate, which is safe in fish tanks under 40ppm.

So, to keep the fish from being burned by its own ammonia, you must cycle the tank! Here's a resource on tank cycling and how to do it :…
AxelFlynn Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2015
Ok, thank you. Since it's a small tank, I'm thinking about 
getting a single fish, or a couple of smaller fish to do this, 
namely either a blue Gourami or two/three Dwarf Gouramis. 

Do you have an idea on which would be better?
