Introducing Kokomo

He's here! He arrived right at noon very healthy, feisty and couldn't wait to get in his tank. He is super active and very curious. He colored up quickly and has explored every angle of the tank and his neighbors next door. We listened to the Beach Boys song while acclimating. He just swam along to the music. His name really fits him. Sometimes it is hard to settle on name until I see them in person. I may have to get him a little beach chair to put in his tank. His colors are really pretty and vibrant. Pictures really don't do him justice. I am very thankful to have him home, healthy and happy. Thanks Olivia for taking such good care of him and for doing a great job packing for safe travel.

Sweeeeeeeet.

I laughed so hard at the "beach chair" comment. He needs that. And a little Tiki hut, sunbrella...do they make those? It should be a given.

Welcome home, Kokomo. Cutie, cutie.

May I ask how one packages a betta? Do they use those "breathable" bags? Or do bettas still need an actual air pocket in the bag to breathe from?

I could just see him chilling on beach chair sipping cup of blood worms haha. Mine always shipped with air in bag, double bagged with lots padding newspaper or peanuts and Styrofoam padding on box walls.

Sam rescape

Somehow I had it in my mind today would be light fish maintenance day with getting Kokomo's tank done and him settled in. Levi needed another med dose but other than that no big projects. Lol funny how that develops. Levi improving. Rotated different cave to keep him entertained. Well then looked at Peppermint tank. It needed cleaning again as algae going wild. Took that tank apart and redid. Supplemented all planted tanks and topped off everyone's water. Moved frogs to room across hall with Bryant and Nikolai. Sam and frogs tank needed vacuum and had extra plants so completely redid that tank. Sam is thrilled with new forrest of plants. Took cave out for now for something different. So several hours later sit down. Haha. Here's tank pix.

I just like the little name tags they all get. I saw label makers at Walmart and thought of MamaJ. :)

Oh yes! I do too. I write it on blank sticky labels though. It messes up everything when I move fish around though..."Antigua's filter" now means "Cory filter"....as long as *I* know that, we're good. Hehehe.
