Subbing, can't wait to watch her grow!

Yeah she won't have her full colors in yet since she's not old enough it seems! But she will over the next few weeks with good food!!

Feeding her an array of foods, so hopefully she'll take interest and start developing the habit of coming up when she wants food!

And thanks, I'm really excited for her to grow into her tank and the blue on her fins looks really pretty!

I silently subbed your baby betta journal, lol /stalker :s

Day 3 photos again





Finally started exploring her tank. Was bored and grabbed the camera, since she's not hiding some more.

Day 4 updates

So today, I found her stuck in the Fluval Chi filter. I was mortified. She doesn't seem harmed, since it does have a very gentle pull, and I thought she wouldn't be affected. I quickly shut the filter off, and she wiggled her way out. I've heard of putting pantyhose over the intake, but I really don't know what to do right now. :/

And yeah, I was have been planning to add more live plants to my sorority and to the baby betta's tank. I won't do much to the sorority, just add some hornwort, anubias, hygrophilia and hopefully some giant duckweed again. But for the Fluval Chi, I plan to do a complete makeover, and really looking for a nice piece of driftwood and attach some anubias or java mass to it!

I was super inspired by this pic

that I found on "The Betta Life" tumblr. That guy has really beautiful tanks!
but ya, I'll just see how it plays out when I go to my LPSs

I'll add some photos of BB later, her colours have really started to come in!

Yes pantyhose works wonderful, i use a rubberband to hold it on. I actually just took off the pantyhose cover in my 5.5 with Steve on that side since he never goes near it and he's much too strong to even think about getting stuck in the pull. So just when you siphon out the tank, kick the siphon on the pantyhose and run over it to pull off any debris that might otherwise clog it up and it will be just fine

I actually suggest Frog-bit over giant duckweed, it's easier IMHO but whatever floats your boat and what you can get at!

I absolutely LOVE frogbit! It is so perfect in my sorority.
But in my Fluval Chi, it just dies. It doesn't get nearly enough light, and that just sucks. it's obviously one of my favourite floaters.
