Smile finsNhooves betta and horse journal

11/12/13

Hi guys. I thought i would start a journal about my betta and my horseback riding adventures. Right now i have a royal blue male crowntail betta named felix. He is in an Aqeuon Evolve 4. I got him from petco. I love him to death! I would post pictures but i cant right now.
I have had 2 goldfish and 10 mollies before but bettas are new for me. I thought i only wanted one betta but not that i have Felix, i am addicted! I want to get a new 10g tank and move Felix into there and get 6 black kuhli loaches. I am so excited to upgrade him! but one problem, i need to convince my parents. I have saved up enough, so i am pretty sure they will let me. But there is one more thing i dont think they will agree with. I want another betta! I would buy a big kritter keeper to put it in. Wish me luck! I am oing to talk to my parents tomorrow!
I have been riding horses and taking lessons for 7 years. Sadly, i dont own a horse but i have leased 2 horses an i used to volunteer at a ranch but right now i dont even take lessons. But i just recently went to a show on my old lease horse who i still get to ride occasionally and we got 3rd place! I couldnt be more proud of Morris ( my old lease horse)!

I hope i didnt bore you too much! If you read all of this, you are awesome!

Happy fishkeeping :)

P.S. for those of you with an aqueon evolve, i find that the flow is too strong for my betta even with it on the lowest setting so i did a mod. I punched a couple holes in the tubing of the pump and i also rubberbanded a piece of pantyhose across the nozzle. Hope that works for you!

Glad that you figured out a way to fix your filter flow for Felix :). Also, congrats on the 3rd place with Morris! I hope you can continue to work with equines as they are amazing animals to work with.

So i was planning on talking to my dad about getting the 10 gallon and going to the store but i didnt get to because it turned out that we had other plans that i didnt know about until the last minute. So my dad wont be home tonight so i might ask my mom even though she says that i can have no more pets, (i think she doesnt care about fish just pets that take up more room) i will hopefully have an update later tonight or tomorrow

Definitely worth the wait though to see how happy the fish are when they can finally enter their new home!
