This is what I did with Pepper's bowl last night after I did a water change. I thought it looked a little sparse, so I gathered up some things I had around. That is an alligator in there , but it looks like a monkey in the pic (to me).
Pepper is the betta I rescued from Wall-Hell after I witnessed the worker in fish dumping a cup of cola in the fish sink. When i got closer I saw this poor little guy's cup sitting in the sink with ice on top of his lid and the water brown from the drink dripping in. He is doing so much better his shredded tail is almost healed, and he is making bubble nests like crazy!
