Smile Mashiro's Baby Betta Journal (Pic Heavy)

Okay, I went to Petco today to pick up some plants and aquarium bulbs and came home with this guy/gal!

The tank is one of my personal favorites, the Aqueon Mini Bow 2.5 Gallon. I've got a Tetra Whisper Filter in there, that's adjustable to the lowest flow right now.

I've got him/her on a diet of frozen brine shrimp, and 3 crushed NLS throughout the day.

This is just after feeding time and he/she looks very chubby and full right now, but is very active and curious about everything around him/her!


Gorgeous coloring on the body and fins, as seen here.



Fantasy themed tank. I'm a sucker for dragons and such.



You can see here I've got a bit of Java Moss for a hiding and resting spot, can't wait to see what it looks like when it's grown in a bit!



This is the lighting I used because I absolutely HATE incandescent and replace them whenever possible.



That's all for now!

I will try to update weekly with his/her progress.

Just wanted to get an image in here where he/she wasn't full of food! Now you can see their actual body conformation!

Well, here it is the 3rd day I've had (what I'm pretty certain is a boy) Merlin and he hasn't eaten one crumb of NLS. The only thing I can get him to eat is frozen brine shrimp.

Anyone here got any idea how I might get him to chomp on the NLS a bit too?

(So far, I've just been crushing it to a powder and sprinkling it in. Merlin won't touch it.)

Thats a pretty cool dragon you have there, it would be awesome if it was floating though. Just thinking out of the box. :P

Hehe, yeah that would be pretty cool.

Too bad he's made of ceramic or some other such heavy, non-floaty material. lol

Yep, he sure can!

He likes to poke his head through and peek at me sometimes. It's the cutest!
