Went to the LFS today and saw a betta I wanted to eventually put in the 10 gallon I have Bluey in. I will be dividing it when i can get some large plants and the craft mesh. Then my fiance found one he liked and told me to buy it instead and i said no i liked the one i picked. so he looked around and asked if he could put a betta in the crabworx funarium thing that they had. it is basically a critter keeper but marketed towards hermit crabs but nto a good choice for crabs better for fish. it was the largest critter keeper they had and i think its 3 gallons so i told him that yes he could keep on in there if he wanted.
So he bought his fish, my fish, two of the critter keepers so i can house my new one in it untill i add him to the 10 gallon. I still have the 1.5 keeper that i had bluey in but this is bigger so it's nicer. Im not putting in gravel in mine sicne its a temp home so i just have a hide and some marimo balls. my fiance's has blue gravel couple of anubias and a marimo ball a heater like mine but the indicator light on it seems to be broken or the heater itself just stopped working. we may have to bring it back. if its just the LED indicator but its still heating it wont matter. it does have a thermometer so im trying to figure it out if the temp is going down. .
here are some pics. couldnt get a good pic of my guy because he is now hiding in his tiki and wont leave i dont know how long hes been there for. awhile now. I do have a video on him here http://youtu.be/umDFcyDujGI
