Little Bit

So I now have my second betta. Blue passed away a couple of weeks ago. I just couldn't go without another one. I got a very young one this time. I am told he's a crowntail. He is so much more braver than Blue ever was. I think this experience with a betta will be a little different. I got Little Bit from Petsmart. I had gotten Blue at the dollar store.

This time around I've decided not to have any rocks on the bottom of the tank. I find it too difficult to clean without emptying the tank every time I clean. I also got a turkey baster at the dollar store to do some spot cleaning of uneaten food and excrement.

I think Little Bit likes his new tank. He hides in the corner sometimes. But seems to like when I lift the lid of the tank and leave it open for awhile (I'm watching him. :) )

He doesn't have much color, but I think it makes up for it in his personality already. Am I like a bad parent comparing my children?

Anyways, here are the pics I have of him so far.

He is so tiny in this giant tank. I think he may be a little afraid to explore the bottom.

Little Bit has yet to go exploring in the bottom of the tank a piece of food started falling and he began to go after it. Then stopped and went back to the surface. I think he'll love the bottom once he gets his courage up.

He finally got the courage to go to the bottom. I think I'm proud of my little fish. :D

I like when I sit on the other side of the room and wave at him in the tank. He starts swimming back and forth when he seems me wave. I think it's cute. He probably wants food. :D

Haha, it took me a good 5 minutes to actually *find* him in this picture. It's the "Where's Waldo" of the Aquarium World!

Really cute guy though. I'm sure he'll do great with you!

Little Bit is such a different fish than my previous betta. He is so active. He's constantly trying to get my attention when I'm near his tank. He swims back and forth so excited. I love that he even gets excited when I wave at him from across the room. I had thought all bettas were kids slow and didn't di much moving. That is so far from the truth with this little guy. I love spending time with him throughout the day
Today I did a little cleaning in his tank. I use a turkey baster to do the cleaning. Every time I'd dip the baster in he'd head over to check it out. He likes to chase the bubbles around that form when I am cleaning. He chases his own around, too.
I want to get a ping pong ball to put in his tank for him to play with. Or something similar. I think he'd enjoy it, even if it were just for a few minutes. :)
