sometimes might be water condition
but since it tried to take a bite, it should not be.
starve it and try again

First timer keeping betta. I bought two fishes at Redhill market yesterday. Noob me thinking both are males, end up one male one female... Haha
Overnight, the make fellow created a bit of bubbles in his corner liao. I read it's for nesting. Like that, can I still change water??? The seller told me should change water every 3-4 days, overnight water with a bit salt added.
