Hello all. Based on the responses I got from the board, both public and private, I made some changes. I got rid of the PetSmart plants that have caused everyone so much trouble and purchased some real plants. I also got a real thermometer, instead of the stick-on one the tank came with. Right now my new Betta is alternating between hiding and darting around investigating everything in sight. I hope he calms down soon!



Also, after reading the opinions expressed on the board, I purchased my Betta from a local neighborhood fish shop that breeds locally, not from a chain store.

There is no heater. My house is at a constant temp. I don't have heaters in any of my bettas.

Tree, you have no idea how much I want to just buy that figurine! So adorbs!!!

I agree! There's actually a black axolotl at my PetCo right now, the Fish lady has been taking great care of him and he's doing super well! I'm happy to say that that PetCo does fairly well and has been doing a bit better since I've gone there a few times haha. I wish I could be able to commit for the 10-ish year's that they live! I would love to have him!

I think it's just mine, they've only had him for a few weeks now, maybe a month total? He's about 8 inches long now and I do believe it is a boy but I'm not great at sexing them yet.

Yeah, only by ten dollars though! The axolotl in the store was 20.98 I believe! Not bad at all really, babies online usually go for 30-40 I think. I had done so research back a while but I don't remember a ton from it.
