So I brought Mushu back to Petco because they'll keep him under watch and, if it turns out he's ok, they'll put him back up for sale. If not hopefully they'll help him out. I don't have the money for anti-bacterial medication so this was the best I could do for him.

In return, I did get another betta. He has some fin rot so I'll keep him in the Qt for the next week or so to try and get it to go away.



His face is a bit elongated thanks to the curve of the cup. I just gave him some food and he snapped it all up. I want to name him something from the recent(ish) James Bond movie. So something like 007, Q, Mr. Silva, James Bond, Bond Jamesbond, Skyfall, or...idk...

Also, what's the proper amount to feed a betta? My friend says 3 pellets a week or one every other day. That doesn't seem right to me. (she's convinced I was over feeding Mushu)

That's what I told her! 3-5 pellets a day but she said that was way too much. I told her I've been asking breeders but she still insisted it was because I was over feeding Mushu.

In other news, my oto cat, Auto, is dying too.



He's in a Qt tupperware container on top of the betta. So far Bertie doesn't seem sick and Bots won't suck onto the glass so I can't tell. I'll be keeping an eye on them though. I guess I should take them out and completely clean my tank. Once my dad is done with the gravel vacuum I'll use it to suck out all the water and start filling it with hot water, the suck it out, and repeat a few times.

I have glass marble things and silicone sealant. I think it's time to make a Do It Yourself cave for at least one of my bettas.

Guess who has $10 in Petco Rewards Coupons!



My dad used my membership to get $300 worth of supplies for our 45 gallon tank (he got a canister filter). This gives me $10 worth of coupons and that means 2 silk plants for 007 and Hannibal. Between those two silk plants and the softer plastic ones it should be enough for decent coverage of the tank. Now I just need the coupons to actually me emailed to me.
