BlueSky99's Journal

Hello there :) I thought it would be neat to keep up a journal of my betta, Arley. I probably won't be doing daily updates (especially since school starts up Monday), but I'll try to do a weekly update or if something happens.

8/16- After having the tank set up and running for a week, I finally had time to get a betta. There was a gorgeous white based marble betta from the previous week, but this guy caught my eye.





8/20- Day 4 and he's doing good. On Day 2 he somehow got a tear in his anal fin, but it's healing up nicely. Arley likes to sleep on the tallest leaf of the silk plant, and he certainly likes to hide. There's a space behind the silk plant by the heater where I can't see him that he sometimes likes to go in. In case anyone says something about the black spot on his body, Arley lost a scale when I walked by the tank causing him to have a freak out and run into the heater.

Thanks, and sure :) I took this picture the day I got him. It's the 5 gallon Marineland Contour Glass LED Aquarium.

Nice tank :) the silk plant hides the heater well. The plant on the right stands out, I like it.

Arley had his first water change on Sunday and it did startle him but he went back to normal shortly after it was done. He's doing great and as pretty as ever :) He's learned that fingers mean food so sometimes he'll follow my finger. He still is a bit clueless when it comes to getting the pellet because sometimes it'll go right past him and he will never see it. I've been trying to drop it more in front of him or wherever he's facing to prevent that.

I exercised him earlier hoping to get a good photo of his fins. Nothing interesting has happened except he now likes to flare a little bit at my finger. I had to throw away his betta hammock because the wire in it had rusted, but I'm going to try to make a tunnel out of craft mesh.
