Just my ramblings about betta Feng shui.
I really almost bought two more fish last night. Some really gorgeous fish cropped up on Lone Star Betta's page on Facebook, I wanted them so bad... but I restrained myself after I took a good look at my room and said, "There's no way I can bring more bettas into this home right now... I need to change some things with my own bettas first.
Not only is my room a total mess right now (there's balled up kleenex EVERYWHERE, thanks to a cold that knocked me on my butt...), but I've been wanting to do something with my current set up.
My 5 gallon is staying put until I get my 10 gallon. The 10 gallon is going to be turned into my first sorority, once the babies grow up and I can see who's female. So far I'm beginning to think I have 4 females, which would be a good start, especially in 10 gallons. I might get a fifth, or I might just do four and some shrimp or whatnot. I'd really like to plant to 10 gallon, but it might be a little too expensive at the moment. But anyway, the 10 gallon would go on the dresser with the girls.
My next step is to snazz up that little shelf. It's pretty sturdy, despite how flimsy it might look, but I'm not going to push my luck too much. I'm keeping the one bowl, because I like it, but from now on I'm probably buying the almost 2 gallon Kritter Keepers. They're fantastic, I can't believe how much space my fish has in hers. And they're easy to change because you can leave the top on and it acts as a strainer so the rocks don't go down your sink while you rinse them. I'm laying a rope light along the back of the shelf, layering it on top of itself so the light is more intense, and it should light up all the aquariums! Eventually (awhile down the line, of course), I'd like to have four Kritter Keepers and the one bowl... but I won't have the money for that for awhile. =P But I'm saving up (I have a betta jar... ;] ) because I really want to branch out for more exotic bettas.
First things first, though, I have to fix the set up. Putting rope lights on my list this weekend! =]
