Hola, Im Jenn. Im new here, and this looks like a good place to start learning about my new fish. LEmme tell you about him:
My big guy's name is:
MR. HAPPY THE AMAZING MAGICAL WISHING FISH!
I don't have any pictures, because he wont stop moving to let me take a picture. So, I'll tell you what he looks like. His body is black, or dark brown... or something. The color is always changing. He's a double vew, and his tail is bright orange, with turqoius streaks and the tail end is black.
If you want to know how he got his name, here's how:
My dad is in CLeveleand CLinic right now having heart surgery. I went out and bought a betta, although neither of my parents knew. I called my mom and told her, and she was excited (she used to have a betta named Posiedon, but he jumped out...
). SO, she told me about this weird story that she heard in the hospital, about a betta fish named Mr. Happy The Magical Wishing Fish, and a family of bandit pixies cooked him and ate him. Anyway, we're happy we got him, and we got a tank with a lid, so Mr. Hapy won't end up like posideon.
Sooo, anyways, I have some questions.
- Mr. Happy will never stop moving, hes always swimming around. IS this good?
- He keeps playing with his rocks in the bottom of his tank. Is this normal?
- His fins are torn and slightly splitting. Could he have a fin disease?
- I got Mr. Happy from PetSmart. Are the bettas there okay (healthy, safe, clean ect.)?
I know, these are really dumb questions, but, I've never had a betta before, and I want to make sure I don't screw up, and I give Mr. Happy a good life.
