Always check on your Bettas!

Had a weird feeling this morning that I needed to check on the boys. Very thankful I did!! Freddy, our mustard boy, wedged himself under his terra cotta pot and got stuck! I don't know how long he was stuck but he was greying so I am guessing long enough to stress out and close enough to drowning. I watched him for a second to make sure he wasn't being a clown and it was clear he was in trouble. Picked up the pot and he shot to the top for air. Last night during tank changes it was Freddy I was worried about for some reason, now I know why!!
Some silly little tank accident could have cost Freddy his life, I'm so upset over this. Please check on you fish, say hi to them often and trust your gut instincts.
If I could hug Freddy, I would!!

Wow! Very lucky, what a close call. Luckily my guy is on the bar to the kitchen in my apartment so I watch him every meal or rather he watches me and since the layout I can see him in either room since he is literally in the middle of the crossroad. I think he finds me a boring student who is always just sitting and reading somewhere.

Agh! That must've been quite the scare. I'm so glad he's doing better. Wonder if he's learned his lesson?
