Any Advice On Taking Care Of A Fish?

So I got a betta fish named Cap’n to go with this cool mini, self preserving ecosystem that I got last Christmas. I’ve been really nervous while taking care of it because fish are very fragile and one wrong move could get them killed in a day. Plus, this is my first time taking care of a fish. Cap’n has been giving me quite a few scares. The morning after the day I got him, he stayed at the top of the tank for a long while. I learned that this was most likely because of oxygen problems and ammonia poisoning from over feeding. I changed the tank water, and ever since then, he’s been staying in his little purple home I got him, only coming out to feed and sleep at the surface. Today, the tank has gotten cloudier, and I learned that this is because of certain bacteria that aren’t too harmful and should pass away soon. The mini ecosystem came with water plants that are supposed to suck up ammonia and other harmful chemicals. They are currently sprouting now and I think that they are doing their job a little already. Does anyone else know of anything that I should know if I’m going to keep Cap’n alive? Any useful information will be rewarded with a cookie! [spoiler]Fades Away[/spoiler]

    • 1 when changing his water, don't clean the decorations 2 change at most, only half of the water per water change. 3 a tiny pinch of salt (non iodized) is ok with a water change every now and then. 4 when you change the water, get the poop out of the bowl 5 a small bubbler couldn't hurt. It adds oxygen to the water. When the bubbles break the surface of the water it introduces oxygen into it. 6 get to know your fish, they all have different personalities. For example, If your fish is shy you'll become accustomed to it and know that that's just how your fish is and nothing is wrong with them.

    • You need a air pump that will put oxygen into the water. That's for any fish in any fish tank. Otherwise it wont last long. Wouldnt hurt to install a filtration pump too. Dont forget to feed it.

    • Take him for long walks, and don't forget to play catch. Also I hear they like having their bellies rubbed.

        Certain species have certain needs. I recommend looking at proper enclosures for bettas.

          Make sure they are well protected. When those pesky adventures or betrayers come to kill you it could get messy and your main priority besides protecting yourself is protecting your fish. It’s good to assume that whenever someone enters your layer, if it is a member of your guild or even another beholder, they secretly mean to kill you and your precious fish so it means you well to have a eye ray or six ready. Isn’t that right Sylgar. They are all after us and they will be disintegrated or feared or charmed and so much more in a rainbow of eye rays. Even this one might be after us. Poor superior X[i]anathar[/i] and his fish. No one will hurt you little Sylgar. The strongest crime lord in all of Waterdeep, no not Waterdeep, the strongest crime lord in all the world will protect you. No one can remove Sylgar from my side. No one can separate Syglar from X[i]anathar[/i]!-, beholder lord of Waterdeep! Bwahahaha! [spoiler]Why is my name censored? Is bungie after me to. Must X[i]anathar[/i] seek to aim his eyestalks elsewhere at another hidden foe to protect his dear fish and self?[/spoiler]

        • I have had multiple fish, they are finicky creatures, some may die the day after you got them, or others that seem like they will die, will live for 6 years with a tumor growing out of its face... [spoiler]this is why I prefer budgies...[/spoiler]

            • Hey alignment, it’s your friendly fish fact friend (yes I know, believe it or not I am still alive). Now I haven’t had fish per say but I’ve done husbandry work for labs before so I know what to keep an eye on! Firstly, especially now since your having water quality issues make sure to check the Ph of the water (I don’t know beta Ph range off the top of my head) as well as keep an eye on the temperature. Since our friend is a freshwater species you shouldn’t have to worry about checking salinity. I found this link which may be useful! https://www.liveaquaria.com/product/990/?pcatid=990 Also just to know, this species can be super territorial with makes killing each other over territory etc, so make sure not to get a friend to keep in the same tank!

              I have 3 saltwater reef tanks and will soon have 3 more running, so maybe I can help. How big is the tank? Did you cycle the tank before adding the fish? What equipment, if any, are you using? What kind of water are you using?
