Talking Dobby's New & Improved Habitat!

So I finally got all the elements together for Dobby's jar yesterday: Java Fern, Wisteria, and a small faux-stone pagoda lamp. (PS - The jar doesn't really get that much light, I had to over-expose it to be able to see the inside of the jar, rather than the wall & window behind.)



I'm so excited, because he seems to really love his new environment!



He's been swimming in and out of the pagoda all morning ~ in & out the top, in & out the bottom, in the top & out the bottom, just hanging out inside ~ Plus he's been exploring in the plants, too.

He's been so much more active and alert since I added these elements yesterday - swimming around & exploring way more than when the jar was nearly empty. Plus he's started swimming up to the glass to interact with me again. When he knows I'm in the room, he'll swim to the glass from where-ever he is, and follow my finger as I trace it over the glass.

That looks awesome! How big is the jar, it might just be the perspective, but it looks pretty good sized.

Thanks everyone! I'm super excited that he likes his pagoda. He takes naps in there too. He'll swim in the top hole so that his front fins are resting on one side, and his tail fins are resting on the other, and just rest.

TBH, this pagoda is one of the few decorations that I liked that would fit in his jar, lol.

JKFish: It's a gallon jar that I found at the Goodwill. I know most people here would recommend a 2.5 gallon at the smallest, but I just don't have room. I siphon the rocks 2x week (25% - 50% WC) and then a 100% WC on the weekends. Plus the plants should help with ammonia, and I have an aquarium multi-test kit to keep an eye on the water quality.

I love your jar! :D I think one gallon is fine if you're a dedicated owner, and you seem to be! :) I think everyone says 2.5 so that people that don't go shoving their fish in the smallest container they can find and not change the water :P

I love the stones at the bottom and the pagoda! :)

It looks nice!

And LikeDiscoSuperfly, if you maybe say you wish he'd go into his cave out loud maybe he'll hear you lol. Shuester never went into his cave until I started telling my husband that if he wasn't going to use it I was going to give it to one of the other boys. Now all he does is swim in one end and out the other lol.
