I forgot that now that I've moved I can use the Deep East Texas craigslist. Before I was living in a small town about an hour from Fort Worth and I tried posting on craigslist but it deleted my post because I was too far. But now I can use the D-ETX craigslist. I posted on there offering to trade some Scentsy for the supplies I need. And like I said I also posted on the local freecycle. Hopefully between the two I will find something. I would go to garage sales, but I only have like $7 left, so I need to save my money, and pray someone just wants to get rid of the stuff. Zombie doesn't look very happy in his efficiency, so I really want to get him a bigger home ASAP.

One last thing!

How often do I feed Zombie? I've already fed him 3x today. I don't know. He ate the first time, and I think the second time, but I don't know about the third time, I haven't checked on him in like an hour.

Their tummies are the size of one of their eyes. They don't need a lot. I feed mine 6 pellets a day but the pellets are really, really small. Big pellets maybe only 2 or 3 a day.

I feed mine 3 at night and 3 in the morning. He's very active and needs his food. :) You can do the same depending on the food you have.
Good luck with your bids btw!

How many pellets do you feed him each time?
Btw don't forget to take out his uneaten pellets or it'll pollute the water faster.

Walmart has a really awesome 5 gallon aquarium kit for only $30. Clicky. It's what I bought my betta and he loves it. It comes with a filter, tank, and hood with a light.
I also bought silk plants from walmart. A three pack is like four dollars and my betta loves sleeping on their leaves. I have a mixture of silk plants and live plants in my tank.

I also found a cool little ceramic jug with holes in it at Petsmart that my betta goes into to hide when he's sad.




Here's a picture of it.


Also, I found a Theo Hydor (one of the best brands) 25 watt heater on Ebay which was $21 including shipping.

Amour, that's what I want. A tank/kit like that. Whenever I get the money, that's what I want to go get him.

Anhel, your grammar is making me lose brain cells. :( He's already talking care of it, if you read back 3 pages.
