new fish!

heres my new betta i just picked up today He was given to me for free from a nice member on my local forum who is downsizing from 11 males I LOVE him.

He's a PIG as you can tell. When I got him home I put some pellets in his little margerine container I got him in and he ate them all right away LOL usually it takes my bettas a few days/weeks to eat.

He is nameless so you guys can offer some names if any come to mind








heres his tank for now. tomarrow im adding the divider and buying another betta im not sure what im going to do with the tank though because it doesn;t have proper lighting for real plants and i HATEHATEHATE fake plants/deco

Get a CFL from Home Depot or Lowe's.. They come pretty cheap and they'll grow plants well.

yea i have 2 of the 6500k cfls over my 10 gallon and everything is thriving but the problem is in tthis tank where you screw in the bulb theres a plastic cover thing and the cfl wouldnt fit in there. its a tight squeeze because it uses the narrow tubular incandescents. I could take the plastic thing off but then that would expose the cfl to condensation

Hmmm what about Pig? :P

It does on one side but it doesn't get hot enough to do anything. I've had mine on all day and the plastic is just fine.
