So today, with nitrite finally at 0, I squeed. And I ran off to the mall.
There had been a cute little boy there that I saw on saturday, he was pretty sickish looking, but he was just so lovely. I was SURE he'd be sold by the time I could get him when my cycle finished (which ended up being today).
I swear when I saw him first he had ick on his face, but now it seems to be gone, and just his fins are all gunky. He's being treated with some AQ salt in a 2.5 gallon. He's already eaten. I've never had a betta not eat the first day, don't know many people's pain in that area of betta, haha.
Gilbert moved to the 5 gallon section of the tank.. Eventually he'll be in the 10 gallon part, and my new boy will be in the 5 gallon part. He went in the 5 gallon, and was just kind of like "is this the best you can do?..." So unappreciative -__-
It took me 2 and a half hours to do the 75% change on the 15 gallon. An hour of that was spent with a sifter, sifting the sand. BECAUSE MY GRAVEL VACUUM DOESNT PICK UP HORNWORT NEEDLES D: I NEED A NEW ONE, OR I WILL DIE CLEANING UP HORNWORT NEEDLES.
Gilbert in his new home, wishing he had more, when I just doubled his space. I know it's a crummy divider, I want to get a black mesh one so they won't be able to see each other when they both live there. It's not even secured, but nothing would happen if Gil got to the other side anyways xD
And now, REUBEN :) I have NO clue what colour he is! I want to say he will turn into a cambodian, but I feel that the black spot on his tail cancels that out :s I'm pretty sure his fins will redden for sure, I can see a line where his fins are cellophanish near the body, then turn that pale red. He is also a very see through fish, haha.
Look at this cup!!
Scared, you can see his black tail spot, and his reddish fins:
I felt so sick all week wondering if he'd be here. Not good considering I had 2 tests, tuesday and today. But I pulled through, just for him :D This is him enjoying the comfort of heated water. The pet store lady said he's been sitting for a really long time, I guess everyone wants red/blue betta, and his pale little bum is UGLY in some peoples view D:
Sooo, colour ideas? :D
There is some dark patches on his body.. what if he's gonna marble? :D
