We are finished moving!!!

We moved to our new apartment.
Spike traveled well. He was quite active the whole ride there.
Once there, he also got some new scenery. He likes it alot. He is always swimming through the plants and through his new hidey :)


I placed his tank against the wall instead of the window because I wanted to try to minimize how much draft he received.

Also, he will be without a light for a few days. My BFF dropped the tank hood/busted the blub in the process :'(
Lastly, his heater seems to be having a hard time raising the temp. When I released him the water stayed at 80-83 SOLID for a coupla hours. Now the tank seems to be staying at 80F. Not the temp I want it at but I'm atleast happy it is somewhat where I want it.

Yay Spike!
You know any temperature above 84F should only be used for breeding, right? :p
80F is a gorgeous temperature for them.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

TY
I believe the temp would be more like 82F. I say 80-83 because it stays in the center of the top yellow bar.
My thermometer looks just like this one:

Also, he seems to be quite mopy today. But that could also be because he doesn't have his light.
