New guy and upgrade for both!!
I'm just so excited i had to tell you guys! I currently have my first Betta (who i have owned for a month) in a 3.5g tank with filter/heater whole nine yards - an upgrade from his original 1.5g betta bowl i originally had him in. Well tonight i went to petco with a friend and they had tank kits on sale so i ended up buying a 10g tank and then bought a divider, some more rocks and another betta :)
my new guy, which i named Hank after Hank Williams, is a purplish pinkish butterfly veiltail. absolutely gorgeous (tried taking pictures but my camera stinks) his top fin is curled over, i'm guessing that's from living in a small cup his whole life? or is that just a birth defect thing? Right now he's living in Cash's old betta bowl until i get the 10g fully set up.
i think i kinda freaked him out when i put him in the bowl. I had his cup resting in the top of the bowl for over half an hour so i don't think it was shock. he has in there two small plants, black gravel and a leaf bed and when i put him in the bowl (using a net) he sat on the bottom for probably a minute until he came up for a breath... then he started zooming around flaring at everything - if he freaks out at being in a betta bowl i'm wary of how he's gonna react to what i have planned for him, lol.
i have another camera that should take better pictures but i can't find the charger for it. when i do, i'll take pictures of both my guys... just so excited!!
