What a neat idea, I would have never thought of that. If it all works out well, then that rocks! My hubby and my 3 (soon to be 4) year old LOVES legos too.

So, 4 days and 2 water changes later, he's fine. No rips, no scratches, and happy fishy all around.. Well until tonight, when I screwed up, and now he can't have his bridge back til the snow is gone. :(

I was doing a 100% change tonight and the bowl slipped out of my hands... He wasn't in it!! Thank goodness! He was in his cup waiting, so all I lost was the bowl and a lot of rocks. He's in a little 1 gallon now, til I can go out and get something bigger. The heater is too powerful and keeps taking him up to 82-83 before I have to pull it out.. so it's under the bowl and barely keeping him at 75 right now. He's just got plants, no room for anything else. But at least he's safe!

I was at walmart 3 days ago looking for silk plants for him.. and there was this old woman and this little 6 or so year old girl, getting an aquarium. They where looking at one of those 1/4th gallon hex betta kits and I was talking to the kid about the snail ornament she had. She was telling me about her Betta, Bonny, and her new home cause she's just in a jar now (Yes, Bonny is a boy, but tell that to a 6 year old, lol). So I talked to the older woman and told her what the betta needed.. and she ended up getting a 5 gallon tank with a bridge and heater and... the last silk plant in the store. Oh well, I did something good for another fish, I guess.

So Lunch still has a plastic POS plant in a 1 gallon bowl. :( I'mma see if I can make anything small enough to fit in a 1 gallon out of legos. After the experiment, I'm not worried about his fins, there's been no damage at all.

Aw that sucks. Glad no one was hurt from the incident!
You could always monitor with the heater in. Some people put them on timers to make sure they don't over heat the tank, or you can just unplug it if it gets too high.

That's awesome that you were able to educate them on the Bettas. It's nice to see people try to keep their fishies happy!

Yeah made me really happy that she listened. She walked away with a 5 gallon tank, one of the starter kits walmart has, a heater, a bridge, silk plant, the right food (she had grabbed gold fish food) and the little girl still got her snail ornament, which was pretty cool. Bonny will be in good hands. I also wrote down the name to this site for the woman, but she said she would have to give it to her son (the girl's father) because she doesn't mess with computer.

I called my brother and he has.. get this.. a 29 gal. tank, a 15 gal. tank, a 12 gal. hex tank and like 4 smaller hex tanks, he says prolly 4 gals..... So I'll be picking up a couple of the little ones this weekend if it's not snowing. Apparently he wasn't supposed to tell me about his old tanks. Hubby wanted them to stay a secret so I wouldn't spend every penny we made on fish. Dun dun DUN!!
