I agree. I have a 3 gallon glass tank (I think) I want to set up for my betta, out of my plastic one, but I need to re seal it, and get a canopy for it, along with all the nessecities. Might not be for a while for that one.
Are they really jumpers Drama? Crap, now I'm gonna have to upset my hubby and go to wal mart to get that 10gal started tank. GRRRRR I don't have a lid for min.
I like your set up jtfyeung, if Red would jump out I think that would really upset my 4yr old. She tells me that she loves Red lol. I just picked up 3 bags of gems from wal mart. different colors. He had to be right there as I was droppin the gems in. He's very curious :D
Yes, they are jumpers. Its best to have a cover of some sort. You don't want your betta committing fishy suicide. lol I have 2 of mine in critter keepers that have lids and 23in 1 gallon containers with lids that came from Petsmart and 1 in a 4 gallon aquarium.
he's cute! he looks so little. maybe he'll grow yet!
i 2nd the plant motion. it looks a lot better with the grasses (my guys LOVE those grass plants). I'd also throw in one with some silk leaves. They like to nap on them. You can also get a plain terra cotta pot for them to hide in. They're about 50 cents at the craft store. Soak it in tank water over night (out of the tank) and then add later. Voila! Betta cave. However, if nothing else, i'd say some short silk plants in front and maybe a tall one in back. mine like to touch them and lean on them like little butterflies. i love it. they're about $5, and sometimes you can find them in packs.
thx guys. but i really hav no idea where i can find a cheap glass tank that can hold at least 5 gallons...i mean...i am onli looking for a 50$-ish tank..dont wnat it over 100$...taht's just too much.
i found out Ducky is a very naughty fishy. he's like me. naughty and tricky haha. i thought i'd let him sleep since fishies dont hav eyelids, so at 1am i closed my room's lights to let him sleep while i'm still on the computer. right when i was gona go sleep at 2am, i used my cellphone lights to check on him, andi see him swimming around =.=
but it was cute how this morning when i fed him his pellets, he spit it bak out after gulping it down. and while the food was floating bak up, he ate it back half way. i dont know if he was playing with his food, or he's just reswallowing it to digest it better haha but it was so cute cus he was bobbing his head when he eats xD
Some people don't understand our betta addiction. lol My Mother thinks my bathroom is dirty just because I have some of my fish supplies stored there. Its not dirty, its just cluttered up. Cluttered doesn't mean dirty! lol
