He's blue, dabadee, dabadie, haha. It's a song by Eiffel 65 called I'm Blue (just in case you haven't heard it. It's very popular so I wouldn't be surprised if you have). I had actually gotten him last christmas for my boyfriend because his favorite color is blue, so he named him and now he has a theme song :p He's obviously more my fish than his, but my mom bought Bahari for me, so now we each kind of have our own fish. He says he doesn't like fish, but I think it's kind of a half-truth. He likes them more than he wants to admit!
I am super excited that my Hydor Theo heater shipped yesterday! It probably won't be here until next week. I also have another one ordered for the new tank, which was kind of a spur of the moment thing, but it will take even longer to get here :( :( :(
Both of my little guys seem to be doing pretty good right now, so I bet they'll do even better with their new heaters. I have obviously just recently started doing in depth research on bettas... I have learned so much from this site in a week, it's rediculous! I was the newbie last week, and now I'm one of the ones giving advice :p They are definitely an addiction, and the more you learn about them, the more addicted you get!
I have also officially decided that I cannot attend a college that doesn't allow fish in the dorms. I'm not going anywhere without them... I really don't believe that anyone around here that I know will keep them in good health, which is pretty sad.
On a side note, I went to walmart today to look for a thermometer for my new tank (and also took my friend so he could look at filters for his 60 gallon tank that he's been wanting to set up again), and all the bettas were stacked on top of each other covering the air holes for the ones on the bottom!
I immediately rearranged them in a pyramid type way so that at least the air holes weren't covered, and made sure to make a comment to an employee. His response was, "Oh, I didn't realize that they were doing that. I'll be sure to tell the pet department not to do that.."
He obviously had no idea that they shouldn't be stacked that way. There were a few not so good looking ones on the bottom, and one dead female :( At least he sounded somewhat concerned, although I'm not really sure if he's actually going to inform the pet department that I voiced my concerns. Next time I go in, I'll have to move the dead/half dead ones to the front, and re-state my concerns on their not-so-ideal conditions, and also inform them that betta fish breathe air and YOU CAN DROWN THEM. People look at me stupid when I say that, but it's true.
