i'll give him another day or two before i go into full-on panic mode

that.. woman.. needs to be fed a five-course gourmet meal prepared by a top chef. then i'll chain her to a chair, force-feed her ipecac and duct-tape her mouth shut. 'nuff said.
Why should it be a five course gourmet meal? Feed her McD's. I mean, it's not like the bettas get gourmet.

Well, considering his health, the VT price seems fair for a delta. Not to mention his rough treatment at checkout. I'd say fair is fair.

Yup, another day before panicking. I've heard that one . . . from myself. And five minutes later I'm on the forum "My new girl won't eat! It's only been a day and I know she needs time to settle in but she won't eat!"

Thank you, Twilight. I think so too. I'll get pics of her soon but so far, they'd all look like the others: nose down, staring at her reflection on the bottom of the tank. She's so silly.

I know, I can't keep calling her "unidentified color" forever. Oh well. Hey, she's a girl. It's like she's trying on different clothes for a big date. "This one? Nah. Maybe this one. Ugh. I'll try this one."

Fellow Betta addicts, in the honor of this threads name I present to you how I get around such pesky things as few outlets and space: a shelf where each tier holds up to 500lbs and power strips a plenty. Also garage sales! I got a 20 gallon for $2 at one earlier this year.

It's my scheme to get all of the other betta lovers on this forum to buy up all the fish, so that I won't be so tempted! xD
