January 29th: I brought home a baby betta. I named the tiny fish Darting Patterns (Dart for short).
I will update this thread periodically to keep track of Dart's development, which I hope others will find as interesting as I do. :)
The half gallon tank was temporary as I awaited a proper heater for my 6.6 gallon Bookshelf Aquarium.
"Is it food?" Tiny Dart is so curious about anything and everything!
The gravel is a point of curiosity too. ^^ The stripes are fascinating to me: they fade in and out depending on Dart's excitement level.
Dart has an excellent appetite. Here, he/she is gobbling up a piece of bloodworm.
About a week later (Feb. 8th) Dart was transferred to the Bookshelf Aquarium and duckweed floating plants were added.
Which of course had to be investigated thoroughly. ^^
