Hello everyone :)
This is the start of my new journal. If you're curious more about the full back stories to these bettas you can check out my old journal here: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=220082
. I've decided to move forth to this new one after the passing of my "baby betta". Here you'll find the many ramblings from me about my bettas, snails, dog, perhaps the other random animals I follow around outside and maybe a rant or so about my life in general.
Adoption Date: 07/16/13 - Officially 7/31/13
Current Housing: 3 gallon critter keeper (unfiltered, heated)
Likes: Building massive bubble nests. Silently judging the world, well...room, (okay okay me, he's judging me, I can see it in his eyes!) from his mesh tunnel. Being super sassy!
Dislikes: When I destroy his bubble nests. When the camera flash goes off and it's not aimed at him.
*Originally was supposed to be a fish my aunt was going to rescue from 'life in a cup'. After babysitting him for a week while she was on vacation she gifted him to me.
Adoption Date: 07/21/13
Current Housing: 10 gallon (planted, filtered, heated) & 5 mystery snail roommates.
Likes: Swimming through the filter current. Planking?- He will swim, swim, swim then abruptly stop and just lay very still. Exploring his new undivided tank.
Dislikes: When Harley wouldn't pay attention to his creeper advances.
*He's changed the most color wise out of all my bettas I think. As you can see by the pics below. ;)
One Dark Eye...
...and One Light
Current (He has been a pain in the rump to try and get a picture of lately, he's so excited to be able to cross the border onto the other side of the tank now.)
Adoption Date: 08/07/13
Housing: 5.5 gallon (filtered, heated)
Likes: His mesh tunnel. Bloodworms. Playing dip'n'around games with the heater and plants.
Dislikes: The camera monster, rawr!
*Picked this guy up at Pet Supply after going back and thinking he was a betta that had been there a long time that I had seen and really liked the color of. Turns out, it was a different fish. Oopsies. We had a rough start but I quickly fell just as in love with him as the rest. We've continued to have a rough journey together as he continually fights a pretty bad case of fin rot/tears/tumors. But he's a very active, social boy who I'm working on trying to bring to full health.
Current (hiding his boo-boos)
I currently have 4 Black Mystery snails (Meep, Bleep, Okie & Dokie) and 1 Golden Inca snail (Mo)
(They've been tossed about a bit between tanks after Mysti's passing, so their shells are looking a little worse for the wear)
Name: Bailey (Lhasa Apso)
Adoption Date: 03/17/05 (I think?)
Housing: Everywhere! She owns this house and everyone/thing in it. haha!
Likes: Going for walks. Steak. Leg/paw massages. Baths and sitting under the hair dryer. Jumbones (don't know if I even spelled that right). Laying on her pillow throne and gazing out the window. Sticking her head out the car window on rides through the country...
Dislikes: ...^The scent of cow poo on said rides through the country.
When it rains and her paws get wet. The word "no". If you point out she "tooted"...that really embarrasses her. >:D
*She's basically my fur-child, I mean she's my kid she just happens to walk on all fours and have fur...ya...that's it.
Current (Not a Morning Doggy)
So, this is just a brief introduction or re-introduction to the cast of characters you will see through-out this journal. Next post will be an actual journal entry, but I figured I'd start it off with a brief intro. :D!
