I adorned the place with black sand, a heater, a vintage teacup with translucent rocks spilling from it, 5 live plants just sprouting from its bulbs, two fully grown live plants and one fake soft velvet-ish brown plant. He also has a floating log and an origami fan for a backdrop outside of his tank.

I really want some bamboo later on, but it's so hard to chop down. My friend has some in her backyard and we've been trying to harvest it ahahaha. And failing. But anyway, till then me and Pixel will have to wait for his bamboo.

If you look really hard, you'll notice Pixel chillin outside of his log :3

And you can also see the reflection of my hello kitty pj bottoms :T



^ Pixel starring at me from inside his log. So silly.
Abacus has one of those Betta logs, he loves it! He gets so depressed whenever I take it out to clean. :)

@ Bettafish15

:3 yeah, don't worry... It was just warming up, because I had just cleaned it and took the heater out. It said it was between 72-76 (it goes green and then light brown to show that it's 'in between temps' or heating up.) but right now it's at a nice 78 :D

@Aluyasha

Hahaha! Yeah Pixel always just stares me down when I try to take it out to clean it, one time he even brought up as much courage as he could to jump and bite my thumb!! He's very protective of his log. Such a silly boy, and then he goes inside it and 'mean mugs' me when I'm laying on my bed. Now, inside of it he made a little bubble nest :3

Abacus never made bubble nests until I got him that log. :)

Does my betta have enough surface area? Would he be able to jump out??

It is suggested if you do not have a cover to leave a space about 2 inches to make sure he cannot jump out.

That is Abacus, my baby. :)
I have a ton of pictures of all my 8 Bettas in my album if you want to see more pictures of Abby or anyone else. :)
And keep asking questions if you have some. It is obvious you care deeply for your Betta.
