Did some more shopping today. So going to spoil my new pretties. XD
Went to PetSmart. I was so disappointed by what I saw! Not a single grown betta on the shelf! All they had were young ones that were an inch at best. One, labeled a female, was very obviously a male by his fins. All their males were CTs. They did have one 1" blue and black CT male in a critter keeper set up with a ghost shrimp (the only one in the whole store) and a blue mystery snail (also the only one in the store).
I got my 2 new heaters for the new tanks. Got the dividers ready. The boys' tank will have pretty blue gravel while the girls have black. I got some hiding places for them. I also got more silk plants along with 2 betta hammocks (all they had left. -_-) I wish they had had more of the hammocks, but I can always go back.
I picked up some flakes this time and new pellets the last time. He didn't eat the pellets. The flakes (have shrimp in them) he chews up and spits out. -_- Hannibal is becoming more and more stressing. He's not happy unless his anubias plant is floating in just the right spot, his light is on, the light must be on the right setting, and his filter HAS to be on. -_- I'm going to have to baffle his filter because the one it came with doesn't do a good job. The current destroys his bubble nests.
Going to try soaking his pellets again to get him to eat them. The good thing is, his freeze-dried blood worms are not causing him to bloat or be constipated. He's going to the bathroom just fine. He's back to putting weight on, which is good. He was still a little on the thin side. I'm really amazed at the progress he's made from the dull, beat up, emaciated fish we brought him to the bright and beautiful betta he is now. Attacking his own reflection as he currently is...
