Well .. I cleaned out the 2.5's and ran out of water conditioner. Went to the store, and a lady came up and asked me how to feed a betta. I think she was okay with what I told her. Anyway, I had to sort through the bettas just because - some gorgeous multi dragon HMs, multiple yellow VTs, and one lone turquoise DT lady. I had to get her! It's quite rare to see DTs at Petsmart in my area, much less a female. She's currently super stressed out but she's very, very cute :)
Today was the very first wc day for my little Elf! He was brilliant! It didn't worry him in the least.Gave his tank a nice gravel vac & replaced his IAL with a nice fresh one.When I poured the new water in it looked like Elf was playing in the surf at the beach,because he's so tiny he made the bubbles look huge.YAY Elf !!!! An extra pellet for all my boys tonight !!!!!
wc day for Button boy! Gave him a nice fresh IAL,gravel vac'd his tank,swooshed out his sponge covering the filter spray bar & a little algae wiped off the filter.Button swam around watching me & had fun.Nice & easy.An extra pellet each for all my little boys tonight !!!!!

wc day for my little Mako! Gave him a nice fresh IAL,switched one of his silk plants around,gravel vac'd & cleaned off some algae with the magnet cleaner.Mako is such a great boy with his water changes,he followed the vac around and was very happily playing in the bubbles from the filter spray bar when we finished.Love him!!!!!
wc day for my teenie boy Elf! Gave him a nice fresh IAL (which he was laying on top of later in the day.So cute!),gravel vac'd,and that was that.Elf is excellent with his water changes,a very easy going little boy.Love him !!!!!
Fed my boys their breakfast and dinner. Bought a heater at work as Friday I'll be getting a 2 gallon bowl for my newest - still unnamed - DeT that I rescued Saturday night. My coworker saw me looking at the tanks and offered to give me the bowl that she no longer needed. Yay, saving money!
Also exercised all 3 of my boys with the mirror. Didn't let the newbie flare too much though since his fins are healing. He seems to be perking up and getting used to me, which makes me happy to see.
