Haha 😂 I know, I know.... We Californians complain about cold weather when the rest of the country gets "really" cold!
It was low 50s this morning so a little cold for Bettas in jars with no heater.
That is too funny about Ben...he's surfing the current and becoming an adept hunter! LOL 😂

Oh and it could have been worse I saw yesterday the southern Sierra's in Cali. they were expecting feet of snow. ( In May???) Wow.

I'm still trying to come up with a name for one of Mas's sons. I'm also waiting to see these little guys get big.

Ben is excited too. He got a new filter and all was fine until I trimmed the jungle. The current got a little stronger, but he is having a ball riding it from one end of the tank to the other. He also has learned to be a little faster in attacking his food. Now he has to wait a couple of turns around the tank so he can finish it all. I dearly love the way he adapts to some things and not others.

Its been a bit chilly here in Utah as well, we've got a week of rain forecasted and its supposed to stay around 50 degrees for the high. Sad day! We were doing so good with the upper 70s! haha. At least no more snow yet haha

He really is quite the performer. He slides across the front and flairs as he goes by. He also turns his head to see if I'm watching. He's becoming quite the clown.

Oh and he no longer has any snails in the tank. I pulled 7 dead ones out of the tank this morning. I noticed they had not move in a few days so I knew they were dead. Just don't know why. All the parameters are spot on. But since I changed the filter There was no more Algae. So I think they might have starved. (That I'm not happy about).

Haha funny about Ben do entertaining, sorry about the snails. I had to move the Assassin and Gold Mystery snails from the fry tanks to Derp's tank with gravel to camoflauge the major poopage. I feed Derp live Blood worms and Black worms but throw in some frozen Spirulina fed brine shrimp, Daphina, dry flakes, Repashy and lettuce for the snails once in a while. I was also concerned because there is zero algae in that tank. 😜

I like the new avatar. It's a good look. What made you change it? The other one made my wife jealous. LOL, But anything makes her jealous. Derp and his photo bomb. It reminds me of the way Ben would treat his snails.

Haha... No jealousy warranted, I'm an old lady just good with make-up. Lol 😜
I changed it because this is my new logo for my micro-farm, finally completed by my Graphic designer. This will go on every betta package I sell.

I kind of thought that it was your logo and I'm glad to hear the new business is moving on. It really looks great, I'm only kidding about my wife. she is a very secure person, and she knows she has nothing to worry about with me. LOL I'm an old man, or as I put it a broke dumb truck driver. LOL

Haha, I was kidding too... I wouldn't picture you with any other type O woman! 😂
By the way, the larger sized guys in the group of Mustard Gases I separated from the rest seem to be growing at a slightly faster rate. There are about 30 or so in this gang.
