Zuku

Hi, I'm new here. XD Also really sorry for the quality of the pictures.

I was just browsing through the petstore about two days ago and found this little guy all coped up in a little cup. He looked so sickly, I had to buy him. He's perked up quite a bit since I've brought him home and has regained his appetite after gently coaxing him with a few pellets.



Currently, he's in a little dinky tank as a placeholder, it's about half a gallon. But hopefully, tomorrow I'll be putting him in a much bigger tank, with a filter and heater so no worries!

I also just bought some awesome live plants; a long stemmed leafy plant and an awesome moss ball that I ripped into a few pieces, and Zuku just loves them. I'm planning to buy more plants soon.







I almost want to buy more of them, they're such great fish. Plus, I feel so sad seeing them in those tiny cups.

He's very cute. I rescued one a few months ago with no intentions of getting anymore. I'm up to three. Haha.

Oh, dramaqueen you've passed me again...time for a new betta! Just kidding.....I think. I am going to Petco today for a new filter and some gouramis (my Petco is actually the better of my fish stores sadly).

I'm up to 5, and I just wanted to say how alike Zuku looks to my rescue Prof. Lupin (named by my teacher who almost killed him). Split fins and everything, but Lupin is all better now :) Good luck with him!

Kim, I lost my little rescue betta awhile back and wanted to replace him. I wanted a female but I saw a cute little rusty red crowntail male so I got him too! :)

Nice Betta you have there "GrinningLotus"
Welcome to the Betta addition group.

I just downsized mine and now I find myself wanting more again, Go figure.

Found several wall units the other day, each holds approx 20, 10 gallon tanks,
Thinking I need about 2 of them,..
If I get them I'll have to post pictures once I get them set up in place,
