Percy!

I don't know why I called him Percy. I was driving home just after I bought him and the name just came to me and it stuck. Now he's got possibly the most weird and random name ever.

He's gorgeous, and I love his name. I would take the slate out of the tank. That is something he could easily rip his fins on, unless you've already taken care to file the edges until they're smooth. You should add something like a cave for him to hide in, and some more tall plants would probably be appreciated by him.

Oooh, I like him. And believe me...there have been far stranger names on the forum... (I named a fish Macceroni...yeah, two c's!)

I agree with the slate. But, if you've/once you file it down and soak it back before going into the tank, it looks nice. Maybe try the cave idea- make sure it's openings are around a quarter in size and the inside is VERY smooth!

And hey- love live plants, can never have too many! ;D Floaters are nice, if youre into them- I like anarchis- can get messy but is fun, easy and grows like mad.

Ok, will do. I'll try and either file the slate down or just ditch them and buy a cave or something. With tall plants, I think I might steal some pondweed from my garden pond
I the pondweed looks like this stuff http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...0&tx=110&ty=51
And apparently it grows really quickly. I'm not really sure about getting Cabomba or any plants with roots, purely because there is hardly any gravel in the tank.


Glad you like him!

Be Careful with pond stuff, if a pond not in like your yard, I might not suggest it! Even from a yard pond, there might be big bad ickies that could hurt him. Just a cautionary thing ;p

Well I guess Bettas are more sensitive than goldfish
I just found out you can buy bunches of Elodea Crispa (pondweed-like stuff) on eBay for like 5 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/100-ELODEA-CRI...#ht_500wt_1156

So that shouldn't have big bad ickies :O
My parents are getting rid of the pond soon; they never clean it and won't let me clean it either.
