Mr Biggles Daily Journals

Hello there and welcome to my Journals. I am start from a fresh tank and i figured why not make one of these? IM sure it will help someone else out as well and also help me keep tabs on what i need to do every week. So lets start!

6:48pm Eastern Time
12/13/2012

This is Biggles first day inside his new tank! I have a spree with him today because i have a idea for what i wanna do for a tank and this is going to be the start of it. The idea i have is a buddha like shrine for the tank with a betta swimming around. So, what i did was i did just get a Fluval Chi 5 gal tank and it seems to be the first start to his project! I know it will be long before i can get it done because adding one or two plants per week is going to take some time.

So, after getting the two plants i got and the rocks and tank set up. I added 2 ghost shrimp for the allergy and plant waste and my beta from his old tank ( which im giving to my GF so she can start ) into the new one! So far i made sure the temps where around the same temp by a IR based thermostat and once it was around 3 to 4 degress range i change him into it. Right away he seems to be ok and he is swiming around just fine! He seems to take a liking to the back of the top filer unit as he sits there. More then likly there is not current for him to fight and he can float there. Now i have to go and redo my heater since the suction cups seem to have come undone. Below are some pictures!

Thanks! Im not done with the tank. Im far from it! Its going to take a couple of months to make the way i want it, since i am posting mid as well add another entry for Mr Biggles,

Its been a few hours since he has been inside his new home. The ghost shrimp seem to be just fine. After watching Mr biggles chase them for a minute he left them alone. I did try to feed him today but he didn't eat. I no longer see the food pellet(s) anymore so im going to guess he ate them. Tomorrow ill post a small video of me feeding him and showing the tanks beauty.
