Hello its my first post on here and thought i'd introduce my first ever betta. He is called Simon (my 9 yr old named him
) He's in a 2.5 gallon aquarium which i picked up for £3 (i'm in UK) at a car boot sale with gravel and sponge filter. I will probabl upgrade to something bigger in time, i didnt really realise how many gallons it took when i bought it. Just saw a deal and bought it! I've only had him 5 days but is really active and flares (at nothing
). I used my sponge filter from my established 350litre community tank to cycle his tank plus added plants, java moss and wood from the big tank too so hopefully i will have no problems with parameters.
This is the day i got him, was quite pale due to the journey but coloured up within 30 mins of getting home.
This is his home which im not really finished with, not quite sure which way to go with it, i like the "zen" type tanks but prefer to have lots of plants lol.
This is him today, i love his royal blue colour.
