Trip to Petco = New tank = 2 new *rescues*

So a trip to petco for prime resulted in prime, a new tank, sand, plants and fish. Haha! The Tetra 10 gallon LED tanks were on sale I couldn't pass one up! And the bettas were in sad shape so I needed to get at least a couple out of there, right?

I ended up taking the saddest of the sad bettas, a little doubletail who is SUPER skinny with sticky fins and fin rot, and a beautiful lavender and white EE delta who was in dirtiest cup I have ever seen, and he was just laying on the bottom gasping for air!!

If you all would like I will keep you up with their progress!

Here is the new tank (Lemon Doodle on the left new EE on the right)


My new DT who I have named Chandler




My new EE who I have named OZ




and all of the tanks in my room. From left to right is Whiskey and Patrick in the 10 gallon, Chandler in the 1.5 gallon, and Lemon Doodle and Oz in the new 10 gallon

Your tanks look awesome! Good on you for saving those bettas, the EE is such a pretty colour and Chandler is so sweet! Good on you for giving them such a nice home!

Ugh the stupid heater that came with the tank is only a 50w non adjustable heater. After having the tank running for 24 hours its only up to 75 degrees! Not happy! Going to pick up a new heater tomorrow!!

I have been seeing EE just like yours at my Pco for weeks now, must be from the same supplier. They are so elegant looking.

Chandler's looking brighter too, though!

I have the worst case of betta-envy right now.

Bahaha, Chandler- love it! They're all so gorgeous! I saw a crowntail the other day I really wanted.. but I'm a sucker for the "rescue" cases, too.

The thing I love most about this website is it lets me know I'm not the only person who can't seem to walk out of a pet store without some kind of pet. xD It drives my mum crazy!

Chandler attempted to swim once around his 1.5 gallon tank this morning, but just doing that seemed to exhaust him! And he spent the rest of the day resting in the back corner of the tank. He looks at food when I drop it in, but has made no attempts to eat any just yet. I'll try some brine shrimp tomorrow and see if that entices him at all!
