Have been lurking for a little while, gathering information and have been busy setting up the new tank for a while now. Today I finally added a Betta to it!
I'm currently studying Veterinary Nursing and wanted a little study buddy to keep beside my desk. I've had Betta in the past, but unfortunately, followed some bad advise and believed some of the myths and misconceptions...so this time around, I am trying to make up for it by giving my little guy everything he needs to thrive. After seeing an aquatic surgery performed on a Betta with a mass, I was hooked again!
I live on the east coast of Australia, after moving up from Melbourne and along with my boyfriend, currently live with 3 crazy ferrets that think it's hilarious to chew on my toes and climb up my pant legs while I'm studying, hence the need for a fish...nice and calm!
Here he is!
It's his first day in something larger than a cup (now in 21L) and I can't stop watching him swimming to all corners of the aquarium and investigating everything. His set up is pretty basic at the moment, a couple of amazon swords and an urn ornament to hide in. I'm hoping to add more live plants soon and some more hidey/play area's.
He also has no name at the moment.
