First and foremost, I'd like to extend the greatest virtual hugs and thank you's to everyone who helped me help Bo with in the first few days of rescuing him! Your help and guidance truly helped so much, and thankfully Bo's health and happiness has been helped so much as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Also, my apologies for having such a late update~ I just began my second semester of college, and I've been so busy!
Anyway, on to Bo!
As of last week, Bo now lives in a 2.5 gallon tank complete with thermometer, Aquean submersible heater with automatic shut-off so Bo can have 78 degree water all day every day(only $10 on Craigslist!!!), live Anubias Nana plant, new gravel, and a Japanese-style rock house for him to hide and play in!
All in total, it cost me about $32, but I was very happy to give Bo a little more space and the nicer things he deserves to be healthier and happier~ ^_^
My current water change schedule is 50% changes on Wednesdays and 100% on Saturdays. All water is tap water treated with water conditioner!
With your guidance and kind help, I was (hopefully!) able to help make Bo's life a little better <3
However, with a new environment and getting into a set routine, new questions arise!
1. I leave the TV on during the day so that Bo isn't staring at a wall while I'm gone: is this a good idea? How may I keep him entertained during the day?
2. How can I interact more with Bo in general? I talk to him every morning, feed him, and spend some time talking with him before bed, but I would like to interact more if possible.
3. Up until a couple of days ago, I hadn't noticed these (brown?) spots on Bo's lower fin. I'm unsure if it's anything to worry about, yet I'm still worried all the same! Are brown-ish spots on the fin worrisome? And if so, what can I do to fix the problem?
And finally, 4. What else can I do to ensure that Bo's properly taken care of?
Thank you so much for your input, advice, and kindness. Have a good day!
Caii and Bo
P.S.- Attached are some requested pictures of Bo in his old container (with the car and colored gem-rocks) and his new home~ what do you think? ^^
I think Bo's a pretty good-looking guy! XD
