Remedio is his usual spunky self! I'm going to go out and pick up some supplies and some moss balls for him and Bowie today.

I've been horrible about posting, between Christmas, New Years and Bowie being sick. -sigh-

I'll make an update within the next 24 hours. Trying to get a picture of the little one has been proving quite hard, he's decided he hates the camera; though it's always taken a few tries before I've even gotten a decent picture of him.

Thanks for checking in, DQ!

Day 27: 1-8-12

Did I ever imagine I would be posting a "Day 27" update when I was carrying Remedio's wrapped-in-a-sweater cup to bring him home? I wasn't sure at all, but here I am.

Between the craziness of the holidays, having lots of visitors and my other Betta, Bowie, getting sick; it's been an intense couple of weeks. However, Remedio didn't seem to notice any of it. He seems content to just swim around his 3 gallon tank, going in his silk plant and little pagoda; and if anyone tries to disrupt him, they'd sure as heck better have something for him (preferably food).

Somewhere between the post I did before Christmas and Christmas day, I worked him up to two six pellet meals a day (NLS Betta formula). I also gave him his first bloodworm treat last week.

I've been doing three water changes per week. 1-50% and 2-25%. It might seem a bit much, but I want to keep the water extra clean for his fin growth, I also haven't gotten around to getting a siphon yet, so I've wanted to make sure he has fresh water added on a regular basis. He seems to be taking to them well. I've been leaving him in his tank when doing them, to minimize stress.

I bought 2 moss balls and a bundle of Anacharis yesterday. I have them both in QT right now, and am going to split them between my two boys once I'm sure they're safe.

And here are these weeks pictures!!

Picture 1: Taken 1-1-12
Picture 2: Taken 1-7-12

You can see that the growth on his caudal fin has slowed down a bit, growth seems to been mainly focused on his anal fin this week. I adore the second picture, because it's quite evident where the new fin growth is beginning to color up.

His color is so bright! He's looking great. You can use a turkey baster instead of a syphon to get the crud off the bottom of the bowl.

I can't believe the difference in him! I just looked ast the beginning of this thread at the first pics you took of him and his color has brightened up so much and he's not clamped up.
