moodynarwhal Just took advantage of the drs foster and smith sale and bought a heater for the ten gal, along with some water conditioner. I basically got the water conditioner free and then some lol. I'm so excited to set up the tank!

moodynarwhal I bought a 10 gallon today, I'm planning on putting Onyx in there with some ADF. I saw some at petsmart and I totally fell in love, they are so tiny and cute! I've started thinking of names, and I want them all to be named after authors/poets. So far I've got Basho and Austen (after Jane Austen) maybe I'll have a Bronte too?
I also got ammonia alert for Cheesecake and Onyx and I'm really happy with them, because I think my old tests were reading ammonium, because these say 0 ppm. Cheesecake bit his fins until they were about half the size they were before. I think they were too heavy for him. :(

ryry2012 Pretty boy!

If you are going to get a bigger tank, check out craigslist often. I see many people are parting their tanks because it's the end of school year...means more people are moving. I swear, I saw a New 37 gal Fish tank curb alert last week. I viewed the pics. It a new Top Fin 37 gal starter kit. You might get a lucky find!

Bettaloveee Strawberry Cheesecake! Awwwww! The name fits him. Beautiful boy! :) I've never owned a doubletail, they're very pretty though, if I must say! Definitely will be looking into getting one when I get another betta!

His name is Strawberry Cheesecake, but I just call him Cheesecake. He's a doubletail, my first one. He's in the five gallon. I don't think I'm going to put anything in the 2.5 gallon. I'm still planning on getting a sorority! I want to get a black crowntail and call her Dagger.

moodynarwhal Onyx is still going strong! I'm so happy I still have him. I've been thinking what to do with the five gallon, I thought I might divide it and get two bettas, but I may just get one. I like them having a lot of space. I may also consider some ADF. I have a question too: Has anyone kept a couple of guppies in a five gal? was it succesful?

KodaPlusMore Aww, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. :c Well, hopefully Onyx stays healthy!

moodynarwhal Okay, I added the lifeguard *Please work please work please work*

moodynarwhal Yeah but they both look totally normal in the pics. I went to petsmart and got some stuff called lifeguard as a preventative, the worker there actually seemed very knowledgeable, so hopefully Onyx won't catch whatever they had. He still seems fin, about to do a WC and add the lifeguard.

DangerousAngel OMG! I'm SO sorry you lost Sunspot and Raspberry so suddenly! I wish I could help you figure out what happened, but I'm at a loss. Did you happen to get any pictures of them?
