Remember a couple weeks ago when Petco was having that little sale on Bettas? Well, I took a trip to pick up a new Betta and walked out with a very pretty DT betta. I named him Lil' Joe. To be honest, this guy doesn't have nearly as much personality as my later ones. He's on the mellow side and does his own thing, ya know?
My supervisor used to work in a pet store that specialized in fish and we were talking a lot about different breeds and our experiences with them. When I mentioned to her that my betta is in a 15 gallon she was asking me why and I told her that my past bettas had died of ich because I had them in bowls and they needed a heater and filter. She gave me a long explanation why bettas are meant to dwell in small places as they do in nature. I told her I had a couple bowls: one small 2 L and a gallon bowl and both bettas died. She told me they were probably sick to begin with but I told her that ich happens when they get cold, I mean...isn't that right? She told me the trick to keep them warm is to put them in the bathroom since its usually the warmest place in a house/apartment. I'm too scared to try it. I don't want anymore dead bettas. :< If only it were that easy right? I'd have my bathroom a betta haven!!
As for pictures of Joe, I'm gonna have to use my mom's camera because the lens on my digital is really lame. All my pics come out real blurry! Ttyl, guys!
