What did you do for your betta today?

What did you do for your fish(es)? Did you feed them some special food (maybe live brine shrimp??)? Did you do a nice water change? Buy a new filter? Add some new plants? Give 'em some tank mates?
Today I gave MY Omelette 3 new fake plants. One is like grass in one small bundle, the other is shiny purple with lots and lots of leaves, the last is BIG and is like the purple one, only light green and glow-in-the-dark! I also gave my ghost shrimp who is a tank mate an extra pellet of food as a little reward for staying alive for so long

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

sadly my bettas didn't get anything new today, even though Kroc built a cute little bubble nest while i was at work. But my friend got a new betta (white/red HM dragon - GORGEOUS) and while i was at the pet stores i got a clearance tank decoration for my community tank and 5 zebra danios. Her mom had 1 zebra danios, 1 molly and 1 platy living in a 5g tank and the zebra had killed 2 other fish and was relentlessly chasing the platy. I told her i'd take it and thorw it in my community tank. The gouramis and tetras will toughen it up, lol

We had a massive tank-cleaning party to get rid of the algae blood and clean off all the plants. Leonidas wasn't thrilled about sitting in a cup for an hour, but afterwards seemed very happy toodling around his clean tank. His shrimp buddies weren't as happy so I had to bribe them with pellets...
The new 6500k plant light really makes the tank look good, too!

So far, I've just fed the little boogers their daily pellets. I'm also going to move the two new boys into larger homes today. Bloodworms come tonight and I think I hear someone building a bubblenest.

Algae: THEY HAZ A SPONGE!!! AHHHH!!! RUUUN!!!!
Other Algae: RUUUNNN RUUU .... wait a minute.
Algae: We can't ruuuuunnn!!!
Other Algae: Well this sucks . . . .

This morning I put Portal Prime's tank next to my platty breeding tank. He doesn't do well with tankmates, but it's good to keep him active when I'm at work.

I would die if he took another chomp out of his fins.
