new table and aquarium...

I got a new betta aquarium table today, and ordered a custom fish tank that will be fabulous (in about 4 weeks). Guppy's old tank will have to do for now.

The new tank will be 5 gallons compared to the old 2.5. I am keeping it as a backup and plant tank as my plants are always outgrowing the tank.

Tomorrow I am going shopping for a new fish. I hope I can find one at a neighborhood fish farm. Looking for a bright yellow male.

I am very excited and just had to share with someone that would understand.

My yellow HMs King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima, Rosie, Pepper ...and ten thousand children of Willem and Rosie (it is really about 80, but it seems like ten thousand).

RIP Guppy... The little fishie who inspired me to breed bettas.

Hey Atena so sorry for Guppy:( He was very happy betta:) I am glad that you going to have another one. If you will keep anything from Guppy's tank make sure you disinfect it. Do you need any tips on the disinfection?
Or you know i will just post it for you

Be careful when you picking the betta make sure there is no sign of the disease. Can't wait for the picture.
Also btw just thought about it. You can quarantine new betta in the tank without any decorations for a few weeks just to make sure he is healthy . I don't want you to end up with disinfection's again.

This is the other alternate boy, his more yellow but he is also a little pale and his fins are not as fancy as I would like.
