Adventures of Callisto & Castor - BettaNard's Journal

HELLLOOO ALL! I have decided to start a journal to update you all on Callisto's & newest addition, Castor's lives. Will also write about my tanks, plants and other random things I decide to write about!

Before I start a whole bunch of writing, I suggest you all get properly introduced firstly to Callisto (a pet store find):


First day of owning him, already feeling good in his new home


Cheeky boy


Boo!



Now I originally had Callisto in a 2.5G tank and then moved him here to his new and bigger home:


But unfortunately Callisto started to tail bite:


So, with expert opinions, (Thank you RusselTheShihtzu) I have him back here in his 2.5G tank and he's healing and no more tail biting. Let's wish him a fast recovery guys!



Castor's introduction in the next post...

Now Castor (an auction win!) just came in the mail today, in very good health. Credits to Fishchick Aquatics (Jodi-Lea Matheson), she provided overnight shipping!

Here are some screenshots directly from her youtube video:




I now have him acclimating very slowly, being extra careful haha
Let's all give Castor a warm welcome and hopefully he'll feel more comfortable in his new home



PS. Callisto looks a little jealous, he even turned his back to me when I asked him if he liked our newest addition to the fish family! xD

Angry boy

Still nothing compared to the one you have Ossie in :P I love yours, I wish I could fit a big tank like that in my room.

I've just gotten home from work and worried because I had to leave as soon as I popped him in after acclimating him. I was thinking about Castor all day haha!

He seems to be settling in nicely already! So much that he's eating already.

Haha, I acclimated him and then went to take a shower, came back and found him just chilling there! Biggest cutie, making himself all comfy already

Thank you very much, I'm looking forward to taking care of both of them :'))

When I first introduced Castor, he was super super shy, hiding in the rock cave and plants. Now that it's been a couple hours, he's settled in quite nicely and decided to cooperate with the camera. Here are some awesome shots of Castor!
