How to 'perk' up a listless Betta?



bert - You try what the thais to train their fighter fish. Put him in a Jar with dry banana leave, and block the light from the jar and keep it in a quiet place and feed it with 8-12 larvae or blood worm,etc daily for ten days,then put him back in his normal tank. The full description can be found in www.plakathai.com or check out the malaysian website that trains PlaKat fighters. I had experienced that before with my Crowntail before, he look so sian. I see him also sian..haha. Then I use the traditional method on my him. Now, he is more active than ever. Hope this might help. - Mar 1, 2001
Tan Wei Leong - Just give him a few days, I think he'll get over it. Same goes to my fries, they got very depressed the 1st few days after I jar them. They lost their color, got cramped fins and refused to eat. Now their color are back and fins are wide open heheh. - Mar 1, 2001
Victor Chan - A good way to pep him up again is to put a female next to him again. Somehow, females work better than males I've read that male bettas sometimes get into bouts of depression esp after spawning and removed from his frys. Maybe they find no more purpose in life as they have reproduced. Gotta be careful here, bettas can actually die from depression... - Mar 1, 2001
