So did another water test today, saw that the ammonia was still there. Decided to go to Petco and try out that Safestart, mostly because I want my boys out of the temp tanks ASAP. Went with my dad, and I foolishly went to check out the bettas. The first one my dad saw was this piebald copper boy. He was calling to me. My dad went looking at the others, and saw a lovely double tail yellow betta with gorgeous fins. He really liked that one, but I was adamant on the piebald boy. Surprisingly, my dad didn't stop me from getting him. I thought my mom would freak out, but when I told her about the new boy, she was like, "you got another one for your collection?". But they both think think that my new boy is ugly, but I think he's freaking adorbs.
I named him Thor, thanks to some awesome people in the forum. People were suggesting storm-themed names. Seki was the one who came up with Thor. Thor is the epitome of a glutton. I put him into his new home, and the first thing he did was try to eat gravel cuz he thought it was food. There was a small piece of gravel stuck to the side of the tank, and he jumped like 3 inches to try to get to it. I thought that he was gonna kill himself, so I decided to drop it into the water...and he ate it. HE. ATE. THE. GRAVEL. I thought he was going to spit it back out, but it never did. I hope he'll be alright. He also tried to take a bite out of the silk plants, and when I added some IAL into the tank, he tried to take a bite out of it too. Here's some pictures of the piggy. He's quite stocky and thick in build:
and a video
He's in Mufasa's old kirtter keeper. I'll need to get him a filter too.
So I have Rain who constantly tears/bites his fins, Mufasa who somehow manages to hurt himself over nothing, and Thor who tries to eat everything he sees. I have my work cut out for me...
