Aquaris is a cool name =3 I suppose you could even possible go with constellation names like Aquarius, Cancer, Pisces, ect. That might be a cool pattern. And thanks <3
Oh yeah, we definitely went through a TON of names before we narrowed it down. Figured with the upgrade and the new home and all he was probably stressed at seeing his reflection and the new people and pets around here. After the first 4-5 days though he mellowed out a little, but is still a spitfire, haha. I have taught him to "dance" for his treats and to greet and stuff, so now if he wants me to pay attention to him, he knows all he has to do is start dancing and it gets me every time.
I really like the theme thing too, and it sounds like you have a lot of options to choose from! You're tank looks so peaceful, like it's own little underwater world, and that is my favorite part of keeping an aquarium. I've kinda done the opposite though, started out with one set-up of decorations and as time has gone completely changed it around and replaced everything with the dragon theme because it just suited Draco better. He likes it better this way, and I find I just sit there staring for the longest time and don't even realize it, lol
Aw, that's so cute <3 I love it when bettas dance. Occasionally some of my tetras will dance for me, but I don't think their bodies are really made for doing so xDD Too streamlined or something, I dunno, but it sort of looks goofy and they give up real quick seeing they know I'll feed them anyway, haha. Instead they settle for nibbling on my hand whenever I stick it in the tank.
And yes <3 I love just setting in front of my 29g, especially since I put a bunch of plants in it. Unfortunately because of where it is I need to sit in the middle of the living room floor, and my mom always gets a bit irritated seeing she needs to walk around me to get to her shipment boxes and such.
A dragon theme sounds really cool though! Dragons are actually my favourite fantasy creatures, so if I wasn't so bent on Atlantis I may have gone that route. Though, then again, I'm not all that fond of many of the dragon decorations around here seeing they're too cartoony, so right now I have an Atlantis aquarium in my semi-dragon themed bedroom, but once I go up to the dorm I have more victorian-style decor so Atlantis fits a bit better -- at least on my side of the room xD I have no idea what decor my roommate is bringing.
Do you have any pics of your setup anywhere? I'd love to see them =3
