Here is the new boy - check him out!

Bought him today. He came from PetCo - debated hard between PetCo (mine does a nice job with their Bettas for the most part) and my LFS.

Daughter named him - Jewel. Haha
His cup from PetCo said he is a Halfmoon...
Seems happy so far in the 5 gallon...seems ok with the filter, likes his silk plants and I just gave him one lone NLS betta pellet.
I acclimated him for about one hour before letting him go free in the tank.
Added half a bottle of Dr Toms bacteria (holding the other half in reserve in case I need it a week or two down the road).
Hopefully it will be smooth sailing.

**Edited to apologize for all my pics being sideways - how do I fix that?!?!?!

Amazing buy! I've never seen any bettas like that in chain stores. Btw, you should buy a test kit if you don't already have one :)

Thanks - yes I have a test kit already. Plan to test once a day the next few days and change water as needed :)

Ooh, nice! I love the green ones like that, and he's a nice, vibrant green. :) Good luck with him! :)


Oh, and to fix your pics being sideways:
First, how do you upload them? Do them come directly from a camera?

The way I do it is I upload from the camera, then I open them in Microsoft Paint (that old, old program that comes standard on every computer). This allows you to crop, change the size, and *rotate*. Just rotate them to the upright position, and then save.

From there, you can upload however you normally do, be it through facebook, photobucket, or any of the other picture-hosting-remote-linking sites. :) I hope that helps!! If not, then PM me, and maybe we can figure it out together. :)
