Smile My 2nd Betta, Chewie :D (Picz!)

Here is my 2nd Betta Chewie. The reason I named him this is because I found him at a ma and pap pet shop ran out of someones garage and he was kept in a tank with like 10000 guppies and a LOBSTER... This Lobster chewed the hell out of his poor little fins. He is a Crown Tail if you can't tell.. His fins are in rough shape... Also a couple pictures of my husbands 3 new apple snails! :) I got him excited about fish keeping.. Weve spent like 90$+ this weekend on fish/snail stuff.







And My hubby's Snails... There are 3... one is in the skull.

He will look good once his fins heal up. Guppies AND Crayfish are known to nip fins....

I wasn't planning on getting another Betta right away but as soon as I saw this little guy I told my husband that I NEEDED to bring him home to save him from that silly lobster.

Poor Chewie! I hope you told the owners that bettas sometimes rest on the bottom and that lobsters/crayfish like to eat things/fish on the bottom...Good thing you rescued him!

I wasn't even going to attempt to tell him that... There was a veil tail (Orange Dalmation) who was in a tank with more guppies that had a HUGE stomach and his fin's looked as if they had fin rot and I told him and he was like "no his stomach is like that because he just ate and his fins were getting nipped at by the guppies".

Hmm...I wonder how he gets to eat anything with all those hungry guppies, maybe he ate a guppy that's why he was so big...well I guess the positive thing is, he's in a filtered tank rather than stuck in a dirty cup.

I'm glad you explained his name, cuz when I read the subject line, I thought he was going to fly off in the Millennium Falcon!! ;)

Well, that was in part why that name came to mind. My husband and I just finished the series literally 10 minutes ago! Haha. I had never seen them before and I FELL IN LOVE with them! I hope to eventually fine a Black betta and name him Vader and set him up a star wars themed tank! :D
