Boredom

It looks like Perry is bored. She just watches me. When I come in the room she literally bursts out of her tank. Is there a decoration or something that can make her not that bored?

Some people put food in a water bottle top and float it. They figure out how to tip it over.

You can put a mirror beside her for a few minutes.

I put a ton of floating plants in both my girls' tanks and they love exploring in the tangles.

Also if you feel Ike investing $8 and some time in creating a daphnia culture, they like to chase down and eat daphnia.

I am planning that next.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

Sounds like it's time to move baby Perry to a bigger tank :)

Not to derail your thread, but - BettaQi, how do you do that?

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
