July 13th (Friday the 13th!)
Time spent with him: 5 months/ 2 weeks/ 2 days

Only updating for one reason: Buddha split his caudal fin. It was a nice tear, but I'm slightly worried that it will happen again since I'm not 100% sure what caused it.
Well, now he's left to snuggle with Confucius instead.

Here's a pic of the injury

Buddha is getting a new tank!!!!

It's a 5.5 gallon tank seen here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o01_s00_i00

I'm dividing it with the plastic mesh so he can live with his fish mate, Pudge.

So that means that I get to go and buy Pudge soon :3

I'm so excited xD Gotta prepare myself mentally for this. The tank was rather inexpensive, and I still need to find the sponge filter for it. But still, hadghjaoiudhsjksd can't control my emotions xD

Thanks! I'm thinking it's a lot better than those tanks that come with everything for $30 more. I'm so happy x3

Kinda worried/confused

July 18th
Time Spent with him: 5 months and 3 weeks

Buddha is doing really well. His fin is healing rather well and I'm glad. He's back to his regular self and I've been continuing with the hoop training. The 5.5 gallon is set to be here anywhere from tomorrow to next Tuesday. I'm REALLY wondering now if I should just put Pudge in there and leave Buddha in his bowl, or divide it.

I'm afraid of using a filter. It's easy to put it and fix, yes, but I'm scared. I once had a 10 gallon tank when I was younger (we had it for a few years, from when I was 6-8), and we had sharks, angel fish, goldfish, neons, and some other weird fish (i dont recall what they were). Well, we had a filter, and apparently it was too strong once the fish got a bit older. They would get stuck to the filter and die there. And the worst part was that the tank was right across from my bed, so I would see dead fish when I woke up. For a good few months, the fish would die, one by one. Then, the rest of the tank caught ick and died. That's when my parents and I gave up on fishkeeping, because we were so scared.

And now, I'm kinda worried about something happening to Buddha or Pudge. But it's a large tank. I don't want to clean it without the use of a filter. I don't want my mom getting mad at me for cleaning the tank so often. Also, when I'm in college, I don't want to clean it so often because the bathroom is so far away. I'm just so scared...and I'm going to need a LOT of help to walk me through :(

I just wish I could just get Pudge already...

Don't worry, Alcemist! You could just baffle the filter. Easy as that. I'm sorry about what happened in your past. My grandpa used to have a pond for koi. I wasn't sure if it was big or not. Probably more than 5 feet? Well, I don't think it had a filter. Not sure. D: Don't worry! Pudge and Buddha will be safe.
