This is going to be a journal on the development on the baby betta, Merlin! I'm fairly sure Merlin is a boy, if not, Merlina! On to the journaling! :)
This is Merlin's heated and filtered 5 gallon home. I've got 2 small pieces of natural driftwood, one with java moss on it and some floating frogbit. I think he's really loving all the space, but so far he's pretty terrified of me!
Here's Merlin in his cup on his first night, acclimating. He's just over an inch long, I think. I didn't really measure, I'm just guessing, but he's really tiny.
Here he is just today, he's really zippy and hard to take a good picture of! Very scared of fast movements and such, but break out the crushed pellet and he's a little monster!
Such a cute face, I couldn't resist.
Not the best pic, but it shows his iridescence pretty well.
That's it for today! I'll try to update with growth pics at least once a week!
