everything seems good! he is all over the tank, exploring, getting mad at his reflection, loving the floating water sprite, fins up and down
i'm extremely paranoid. I've never raised a betta before. I'm loving it, but paranoid

did a peroxide "bath" on the baby anubias since it has some BBA from my main tank. poured h2o2 over it, let it sit for 3ish minutes, rinsed very well and put it back in the tank. there was some bubbling, but the algae didn't look any different. will it by tomorrow? hope so.

aw thanks! and yes! i got CFLs from Home depot that fit right in. Check the watt max on your hood though. This one is 15, so I'm safe with the 14w.
And the shrimp betta situation is actually no issue. When I first put the shrimp in the betta was flaring and going right up in their faces, but when it comes down to it the shrimp are too fast for him
I think it was a territorial display, and now no issues
