Well, I just got my first betta fish via mail, and he's stunning. The only thing is he was supposed to come next week. There wouldn't have been a problem if I actually had the tank he was going in to. Also, I'm going away for three days tomorrow. Now what? He's currently acclimating to a tubberware food storage thing with a heater strapped to it, but what do I do for the three days? Can he survive the stress of shipping, then flopping around tanks, and then going hungry for 3 days? Grumbles.
