Yes, animals, photography and art are my three favorite things, in that order. :)

Good news - my brother told me that when/if his son's fish dies, I'll be inheriting his 10 gallon tank. I'm not entirely sure what he has in there right now... a few corys I think, and something else. It'll come with the filter and heater, and most likely the gravel and decor, even though I think he only has one in there because his fish like to hide. That's the great thing about bettas :) mine is definitely not shy!

Haha, thanks. A lot of it really is the camera doing the work, not me :p

Since I didn't have another tank (besides my old one gallon) I was about to walk out of the store but my mom asked me if I wanted it... so of course I couldn't say no and she definitely was not helping! Haha.

So on our way back we stopped to get another 5 gallon tank, some gravel and a few caves for him. My silk plants should be here tomorrow and I ordered 8 so I'd have enough for two tanks.

He did survive the 2 hour drive home but it a little scared now, which isn't surprising. I still have him in his cup because I'm sure he's already stressed from the car and I don't want to stress him out more too soon :/



I AM THINKING about naming him Mitsu (meaning three; he is my third betta, ever) but I am still not 100% sure. Feel free to give me name suggestions if you have any, I'd appreciate it ;)

Copied and pasted this from my post in the betta pictures forum so I didn't have to retype it. Isn't he precious? ^_^

I haven't moved my new betta from his cup yet but would like to do that before I go to sleep. DaBaDee almost got himself stuck under a rock earlier, and was totally checking out the thermometer I put inside his tank today.

The new betta seems pretty friendly. He's not very skittish. I've been adding water to his cup so that he can acclimate in his cup, because the cup and the tank are at the same temp- room temp. He was also checking out the thermometer I put in his cup, haha. Very cute :)

Crazy how? haha. He was flaring quite a bit when I was taking some pictures. I'm not sure if he could see his reflection in the glass or if he just hates my camera, haha.

I did get my new silk plants, my gary ornament, my test kit and some AQ salt in the mail today. So of course, I redecorated. I only put one plant and Gary into DaBaDees tank for now. Since he doesn't like his pineapples house I'd like him to get used to the new plant before I take out his plastic one.









He seems like he's doing really well! No signs of stress besides the somewhat random flaring. I sure hope he doesn't hurt himself doing it!

Aww that last pic is too cute xD

and my guy likes to flare at any black object he can see from the tank... he's starting to calm down a bit I think, he's only been in the tank since Sunday

Well, that would make sense... My camera is a giant black object, ha. For some reason my camera will sometimes have a green light come on right before I take a picture so I thought that was what was making him flare..

But after taking a test picture to see if the light was coming on... well, it wasn't. So I wasn't sure what it could be!

I have decided on the name Bahari.. I think it suits him best. :)
He's quite the aggressive little guy. He flares a lot and you should see the way he attacks his food, haha :)

He does follow my finger around. DaBaDee only follows my finger if it's in the water, otherwise he follows my entire body xD
