So what did you do 'betta' today?

This is just like the "So what are you up to?" thread except it's only about betta's. :P

So today I went to my LFS to look at bettas, and without realizing that an employee was sitting there organizing the fish stuff, I said to the bettas, "Let's see. You're on your side, your floating, and are you dead?" Well, the employee said, "Oh, they're just getting adjusted to their cups."
I didn't respond. :P

How 'bout y'all?

I did a water change on Rawrie's tank... the poor girl needs it, she has parasites in her gills... And I crushed up garlic and soaked some pellets in it for her.

Oh, and I picked up Humphrey off the floor. He decided to try and fly. o.e

I did 100% water changes on all of my Betta tanks, and removed the gravel from all of them because I'm sick of dealing with it. Sequin seems really happy with it. He has more room to swim, and for some reason, has really livened him up. I also made a shopping list for next month for what I need to get for my Betta crew.

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

I went to Petco to get decorations for Jasper's tank and i, of course, went to look at the bettas. They had double tail plakats for the first time! i was so excited (almost got this really cool purple dalmation and a black and white HM...) then i went to the fish area where they also have bettas kept away and.. there were two dead. I told some employee and she was just like "yep." Also, one of them that i wasn't positive that it was dead so I had to instruct her on how leave very little water so it could get some air. It was sad.

Then i was talking to an employee that i always talk to and there was a dirty cup and he was like "the guy must of skipped him, oh well." People these days lol.

Aaaand i just did water changes on my guys.. not sure they appreciated it. Oh well =P

Fred, HM male
Trudy, VT female
Jasper, VT male :)

Went to the LFS and spent nearly $100 on tank stuff, then came home and set it all up. Poor Scarlet, he's been living in the 15 gallon for a week now and was SO upset that he was moved out so that I could work in the tank. He's still sulky ... he and the others all got bloodworms. I hope they appeased Scarlet's wrath. I put him back into the tank and for now he's one happy boy. If I can't find the girls I'm looking for I'll divide the tank. (woo hoo!)

Right now they're all trying to get my attention, they're practically doing the hula now, lol. I've told them that they've already been fed, but they won't listen. Typical, lol
