@BettaLover1313 - Yep, you're right, I looked it up and they can flare too. Hm...there went that theory!
Let's see, let's see, what did the lil' stinker do today. I think he's starting to understand feeding time. When I shake the pellets jar in front of the tank he looks up and waits now. So that's pretty cute. :D Right now he's playing hide and go seek in his log, goes in one end and pops out one of the random 4 holes only to go back in and pop out a different one. Wonder if he thinks he'll end up someplace different each time.
Been watching his tank and thermometers. I turned the heater up, I think with my fan on and the ac going it's not letting the water hit the right temp. But it's a 50 watt in a 2.5, I'm worried I might end up cooking him. But so far, the temp is only slowly going up, seems to have stopped around 77ish. I wanted to pick up a little 25 watt Hydor heater, Petsmart had them on the site but of course not in the store.
Oh well. Guess I'll have to order online.
Went over to Petsmart today to pick up an air pump and some bubble stones. Also snagged a cute little log with silk plants on it they had on sale that I'm going to rig the airstone in. Hopefully it'll work out well. I have to hand it to this particular Petsmart, they never have a huge overstocked selection of bettas, they all get their own row, no stacking the cups and none of them are dead in the jars and when they sit for too long, they discount them greatly. They had all their female bettas on sale for 99 cents and $1.99 (I think) for the crowntails. If only I had a sorority. The cashier asked how my betta was doing. I guess you know you go to a store too much when the cashiers start to remember you.
and on to the pictures!
(Oh hi! Don't I look naked when the flash shines on me?)
( I can TOO fit this whole thing in my mouth!)
(No more pictures, please)
(It was storming today and my fur-child is not comfy with that, so I sat her on the desk so we could watch the baby fishy together. I lol'd when I saw the pic and the fishy in the background looking all "WHAT IS THAT!?")
