But I've heard great things about it, and it might have just been my fish! Hopefully yours is just fine, I'd just keep my eye out for it!
I love the decorating, by the way! That skull is really cool!
EDIT** I also noticed you have a Betta hammock in there- I've heard horror stories about there being metal wiring in them, so I'd watch out for that too!
Really? My guy hasn't had an issue with the filter so far. I've heard that about the hammock, but they must have changed the design, mine is definitely all plastic. :)
I couldn't find any more plants I liked so I added more of the same. Eventually I want to get a second moss ball. The jaguar skull is from petsmart, he swims in and out of the mouth nose and eyes, it's creepy :P the other day something spooked him and he darted down and hid inside, so I'm glad he has a place he knows he can hide
