So I totally forgot I had this. xD This is why I could never keep a proper diary before. Always forgot to write in it!
Anyway, I upgraded my fishies to a 10 gallon divided tank, and so far, they're loving it! I haven't been able to get any clear pictures of either of them in the tank yet, since they've been so excited, they haven't stopped exploring.
I hope to get more plants soon, to fill up the tank. I think I might want some floaters and a few more stem plants. Preferably leafy ones!
So far, no problems. They seem happy and healthy, the filter works and is baffled, and the heater is doing a good job with the temperature. However, I'm not sure if one of the thermometers is messed up or not... It keeps reading a few degrees higher than the other, while the other is closer to the heater. Confuses me. Both sides feel the same though, so I don't know what the problem is. I'll probably be picking up a new one soon and giving my other one to my sister.
I'm also taking in her betta to nurse him back to health. His name is Autumn, and he's a beautiful VT. Not quite sure what color he is. He's kind of orange, but not true orange. He's pretty, but has a really bad case of fin rot. She doesn't clean his tank like she's supposed to, so I'm going to move him into one of my hospital tanks with a heater and treat him with AQ salt and stress coat. Hopefully he'll get better with warm water, meds, and water changes. :( Poor little guy. Thankfully, due to my advice, she's saving up to buy him a KK and a good heater too. Though I might just sell her my Top Fin one that is in good shape and get another Aqueon for my hospital tank. Life time warranty! 8D
It's really tempting to pick up another betta now that I have 10 gallons. Both of my bettas are used to 3 gallons of space and if I were to divide it into 3 parts, they'd each have a little more than 3... I'm really tempted to pic up a CT girl. I have a fascination with the girls now. ;-; I think I might even like them more than the boys. I might move Patriot to the middle and put both girls on either side of him. Oh, the temptation. I probably won't do it though. The only CT girls I've found are at Petsmart, and I don't want to buy any fish from them anymore. I very much prefer my LFS, and I don't think they have any CTs there. Only plakats or VTs, from what I've seen. Maybe I'll look next time I'm there... >w>; Kinda like only having two to worry about though. We'll see.
