Poseidon

Well as some of you know, I just could not wait to get a betta. Right now he's in a bare 7 gal hex tank. I believe he is a VT, but I haven't seen or tired to get him to flare out.

Here he is, Poseidon:





*These next pictures, the white thing is just something on the tank that I missed on the outside*




As you can see its very plain right now but soon he'll have lots of live plants to lay on and enjoy.

Should I add any other fish in there as it is 7 gallons. I'm thinking maybe some shrimp maybe 15-30 of them once my plants are in.

Oh, he's adorable! He'll love that tank, I'm sure. You can add shrimp but he may eat them. Some do, some don't. You never know until you try.

Thanks. He seems pretty skinny. I've given him 2-3 betta pellets 3 times today. Should I leave it at that or more? He's got such great personality, when I come into the kitchen he comes over and says "hey, whatcha doing?" moving back and forth watching me. Its kinda nice having a betta again. When I lost harmony after just 9 short months, I hurt so bad. I really didn't think I could do it again, but that's what I said about guinea pigs 14 years ago and now I have 6 ;).

Awe you make him blush, with all these compliments I might end up with a red betta instead of blue ;)

As long as he's not bloating that feeding sounds okay. It's really much better to feed smaller meals throughout the day, like you're doing, then one or two big ones. He'll be pretty active with all that space. Just watch him and if he starts getting a belly on him, then cut back. Tango can put away 15 small pellets a day but he's crazy active. Everyone else gets half that.

Poseidon is super active, when he thinks I'm not looking he's booking it all around the tank. The tank is about 18" from top to bottom so there is lots of room to boogie.

I always fed Harmony (RIP) many small meals, so I thought it was only natural but he eats them all and gives me a "is that all" look LOL. I snapped some more photos. The water was murky thanks to the sand but its really cleared up, not SUPER clear yet but dang near. I'll post them here in a few mins.

Poseiden:
"Aren't I cute?"


"Yes so very cute am I."


"I'm even cute when I breath."


"Just look at my colors."


"Okay enough with the photos already, my agent will not be impressed."


This one turned out really weird but super cool. Its like he's an "angel" fish sent from above.
