That's so annoying, I mean, even though there's a chance it's alright with the delivery we always get worried about it. >_>!

I wouldn't be able to sleep if I were you... Maybe that's why I prefer LFSs.. :V

That's me on the photo alright.

Yeah, my co-workers were making me feel worse by saying the guy is sitting in some truck.. stuck in a dark box. Which is probably TRUE. I feel horrible for buying him now. Unless I find a betta I'm dying to have, I'm going to stick with LFS.

@Sillycone, I remember your old avatar and reading your signature with your new one made me giggle a lil.

Thanks guys. Well, I got him today and he's looking pretty rough for wear. I think he's exhausted... I'm keeping him in a temporary one gallon until tomorrow.



Should I be concerned if he keeps hanging vertically near the top of the water like this?

Yes. My HM did that all the time before he passed on. I'd start a waterchange immedietly and try turning the heater up a notch or two.

I got a HM from petco that was doing that in his cup. Once I got him home and keep his water really clean he was fine. I don't know what caused it but it went away. Hopefully the same goes for your beauty!!

My HMs do that just cuz their tails are heavy. If he is active and healthy looking otherwise I wouldn't worry.

I think we're all good now guys!

I woke up this morning and he was perked up somewhat. I've never caught my betta sleeping, but I wonder if maybe that's what he was doing last night. Anyway, here's his new home I picked up from Petsmart.




He's swimming all around exploring :D
