Hi guys!

Well my 8Gal community tank is doing well, the water has stayed clear and Perry (my Betta) seems very happy, he follows people around the tank and has his favourtie hang-outs in the tank. The tetras are getting along with him too. And his colour has improved, he's now a violet/lilac purple and gettileng light blue tips on his fins...

anyway, another forum i am a member of had a post from a lady who has to move suddenly overseas. She had 4 bettas that needed homes and found for 2, but still had 2 more... so I adopted one, he is a little over a year old and a blue/black colour. I've got him temporarily in a large critter keeper tank with a live plant (since he was in an unfiltered unheated large bowl in a 24'c apartment) until I can get him a better setup.

His name is Lapis and compared to Perry he is mr Flare Extraordinaire lol... almost constantly looking for attention lol. Today, after 4 days, I found a big bubble nest (at least I think that is what it was) He looks mad at me though coz I changed the water so had to ruin it :(

Well actually it seemed an ok setup, since 24 here is more like 25 or 26 since apartments get so hot. I have my heater set but the tank temp is always a bit higher since it's constantly in the mid to high 30's. She changed his water every 2 days so I guess a 5gal bowl is not as bad as it sounds...

Anyway I got him a Lily tank in Japan with a sponge filter and a light, it's a bit smaller than I'd like but bigger than the critter keeper he has now

Does it have a filter, heater, lid. and hiding spots but a lack of filter can be made up for by lots of water changes but you need a lid.

Yes it has a lid, I know some of them like to jump so made sure to get one. Heater is on order with the shop. It's quite warm here (25'C in the apartment) and he seems quite active in the day, and resting at night, making bubbles earlier tonight so seems he likes the new digs :)

Glad your getting a heater remember bubble nests only mean being alive Betty built a bubble nest and sadly died a day later.

Hmmm, posts here led me to believe it meant they are happy. Was worried because I haven't seen Perry make one yet :/

Several breeders have told me that bubblenests can be a sign of happiness.

Really Betty was dieing when she built hers and she is female. I have heard of unhealthy Bettas bubblenesting all the time. In fact it seems like the bad owners on yahoos Bettas bubble nest all the time.
