The Bar (Nimble's Betta Journal)
Hello fellow fishkeepers. Welcome to The Bar, where I'll be giving you an insight into my own adventures in the Betta keeping hobby.
To start off my inaugural journal, I suppose I'll give you my current tank setup as a start.
-Tetra 10 Gallon Aquarium
-Tetra Whisper PF10 Filter
-Hydor 50W adjustable Aquarium Heater (Set to 80)
-Fusion Smart Temp Aquarium Thermometer
-Generic Suction Cup Thermometer
-Marineland 20" Recessed Full Hood, w/ Flourescent Lighting
-Seachem Neutral Regulator (Use is monitored carefully)
-Seachem Flourite Aquarium Substrate
-Stoney River Aquarium Sand, Black and White
-Malaysian Driftwood, 11"
-Small Ceramic Rock Cave, with Large Entrance Hole
-7 Small Sprigs of Cryptocoryne wendtii
-1 Java Fern (Microsorum pteropus, attached to driftwood)
-1 Bunch Mondo Grass ([i]Ophiopogon japonicus[i],sold to me as an aquarium plant, not actually aquarium plant. Will be removed if/when degradation begins to occur)
-1 Ivory Mystery Snail (Pomacea diffusa), female(?), Bailey('s Irish Cream)
-1 Tiger Nerite Snail (eritina natalensis), sex unknown, Tuaca (Italian Orange-Vanilla Liquer)
-1 Black/Red Butterfly Halfmoon Plakat Betta (Betta splendens), male, Angostura (Aromatic Bitters)
Pictures will be soon to follow, once Angostura has had a chance to settle in. He just arrived today, and needs a couple days of relaxation before photographs. As most of you have guessed, I'm doing a Bar theme for the names of my critters.
So far, Angostura is very lively, despite his long day in shipping. He's eaten a few pellets, and is currently floating in the tank, with more water being added to his floating container to slowly acclimate him to the new digs. I sincerely hope he enjoys his new home, as I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay, here in The Bar.
