Yes, shiny objects intrigue him and keep him occupied. I put something large and shiny next to his tank and at first he usually flares at it or just stares at it for a second, lol. They he goes right up to the side of his tank and swims next to it over and over just looking at it. I think it really helps with boredom. I try to get fairly large objects that are bright and shiny. Hope this helps!

i have been depressed for a week now. it is so severe, i got my period 2 weeks early. my husband passed away 6 years ago today. i came very close to throwing up last night. i'm seriously considering ending the relationship i'm in right now. Simon lives an hour away from me. i don't have any way of contacting him. he tells me that he shares a house with 3 guys (which is very common for Toronto) he says he doesn't have a phone or a computer. i haven't seen him since feb. 9. i suspect he is married because we have never gone outside or on a date in well over a year that we met. i'm not usually this down, but i really need to vent right now.
take care, talk to you later.
Thanks so much for asking! I know its taken FOREVER to get back to you, but its been a long time since I was on the site:) Happy is doing great! He gets a lot of attention and exercise since I moved him to the kitchen and he is the center of attention. I give him 5 pellets every day with bloodworms as treats and a pea once a week. I change his water 50% every Weds and 100% every Saturday. I have a 7 watt light/heater that I keep on during the day so the water stays warm. He has 2 silk plants that touch the water's surface and he loves to sleep nestled in them. I took a new profile pic where hes looking into the camera:) I am so happy I got a Betta! I didn't know that fish could have such personalities! He is such a great addition to my family!
Thanks for asking about my fish, but he unfortunately died. The disease changed over night into fuzz covering him, and he died later that day. Don't suppose you know what that is, because I'm at a loss . . .
The one with swim bladder is fine now, much happier in his bigger tank since I moved him too. Him and the baby are a bit cold, since the heater for those two (who are my mom's) malfunctioned big time, and my heater is occupied with my fish. But I'm working on that. Might have to spend some food money for it though. Thanks for asking!
The only thing that has me slightly concerned about is the 5 scabs on Honey's back, I also want the vet to keep an eye on her weight, I'm sure she's a good weight now, but I don't want her to develop a weight problem. As for Ivory, I find that it's much easier for me to feed him once a day, and I've only given him bloodworm for 2 days a week, 2 or 3 each feeding. When he gets his bloodworm, it is instead of pellets.
