Today I went to Petsmart for a control valve. I left with this new fellow. I fell in love with him and couldn't leave with out him. This is my first impulse Betta. My other 2 were carefully planned. He is a red and black dragonscale veil tail. I have a soft spot for Veil tails. He doesn't have a name yet. He doesn't have a filter yet either. But he has heated, clean water and he is very active! He immediately started exploring the tank when I released him. Also, he's already eaten too!
And because I know you want the details here they are:
Tank size: 3.5 gallon half moon
Filter: Will be sponge filter as of monday
Heater: Marina 25 watt adjustable
Additive: Stress coat plus
Food: Omega One Betta Buffet pellets
Room Mates: none.
Temperature: 78. will be slowly bumping it up to 81-82 over the next few days. That's the temp I keep my others at and they are very happy and healthy.
So without further ado, here are the pics. They don't o him justice. The light is no good right now and he is too busy zooming around.
