DAY 71 : Wow has it been this long?! I felt like I just got Prince the other day. After replacement of ten gallon tank, plants, and light - I have redone his whole home. I find Prince puffing himself up on occasion. I'm not sure why? His colors are showing so brightly. I like glancing at the blues and yellows that are held within his tail. Still his body remains mostly white. I added a new tank mate recently. An alage eater of coarse. To help with the ecosystem in my tank. Things are not balanced. I replaced plants. I went with a weedy looking plant, which you can notice is tall and thin. However I just put in there an annabis, I think that's what you call it. With big green leaves, and I'm loving the big green leaves. In the picture ending with #s233628, you will notice Prince in the night time glowing rock (I purchased at Wal-Mart - Make sure you have enough light or it will not light up at night.) Now, since I bought the algae eater and I've noticed since I put algae waffers in the rock (because that's where the algae eater like's to hang) Prince has been hanging out in there. Eating the waffers? Why?
Prince, from what I have seen and the constant watching of them two in the same tank, does not mess with his tank mate. He enjoys his plants and watches us a lot. I still find him puffing up, still with the question as to why? Is he able to see his reflection? I'm not sure.
Prince is having such a huge time eating the pelts I have been feeding him. They are to big for his mouth? What can I do about this? I have tried flakes... But flakes... Do not work for him, he just spits them out. I crush them and they fall to the ground - not like Prince has any issues picking it up off the ground. The first betta fish I have owned that will eat off the bottom of his tank.
