wow! 15 pictures already! and yes, i count them every day.:-D
sadly sunrise had a tragic accident some time in the night yesterday
he jumped out of his tank and when i found him the next morning it was too late i think it was because there was a mini earthquake or something because i heard another story about a cat hiding at that time and maybe the earthquale or something caused the animals to panick?
anyways i took him back to the petstore and they gave me another betta so i added a couple dollars and got a half moon betta. i thought that bettas would jump out of tanks but my mom said they would suffocate if i covered it and because she was buying the fish i listend to her.LOL
i finally purswaded my mom to buy a proper tank with a lid because it was on sale. i hope to prevent such tragic deaths in the future. i spent the last of my money on that.
anyways go bettas go!
lol no they won't suffocate. There is oxygen in the water if the water is clean and conditioned, and they can breathe surface air. I keep my bettas in 3gallon glass bowls will cling-wrap draped over the top. There's a little tiny gap where the thermometer and heater are so extra air gets in that way. It not only helps keep your fish from jumping out, but it keeps their water from evaporating! (I live where its hot and dry so evaporation is a problem here.) Sorry for your loss though. This is how we learn!
I'm not entering the contest, just because I recently won one and I believe in fairness, but here is Guinness. He passed away a few weeks ago. He was always showing off, hated the camera, and was just an all-round goofy guy. It's the best flare shot I've ever gotten ... loved that boy, and still do <3
