I'll look forward to pics. Active is good, though, especially after the troubles they had shipping. Thank goodness they weren't sick or traumatized from that. I'm trying to get some decent pics of Sherman but so far I haven't managed to do him justice.
I'll take a video of them tonight... I can't seem to get a half decent picture - they're way too active! You... Got a betta to eat brine shrimp? That is something new... I'm so, so, so happy to hear that Sherman is doing well! I think pictures are in order. He's so pretty. :)
Awesome, Sloth sounds hilarious. You always get bettas with such personality. When are you posting pics? Can't wait to see. And Sherman has checked out of Sakura hospital and is back in his new and improved (replaced the sand) tank. He's on a steady diet of brine shrimp and betta log rest but he's apparently happy because he built me a bubblenest. He hasn't bubblenested for at least a month. Yay! Thanks for asking about him.
Hiya Sakura! I'm in love with my new bettas. They're even more beautiful than the pictures let on. Both are super active and really friendly! I named the male Phantom and the Female Sloth - She was hilarious.... [dumped in to tank for the first time] AHHH, SCARED... SWIM! SWIM! SWIM! Ruuuu "Oh, food! Don't mind if I do!" Then she spit out the alleged food (which was actually just gunk on the bottom and continued to skitter around. Sloth, always hungry, even in the face of danger. :)
How is dear Sherm doing? I want a positive report this time! :(
Wow, that female of yours didn't have much in the way of smarts, did she? And yeah, my super clumsy cat thought she could use the tank lid as a stairway to the windowsill. Wrong. Kersplash. Then when she clambered out of the tank and onto the windowsill, she slipped and stepped in the filter on another tank. Luckily for her the tank she fell in was only a 2.5g with two cory cats in it for new fish isolation.
I don't have fish to treat at the moment! Romeo went to live with a friend and my female dog of a female decided she wanted to see what my floor was up to while I was sleeping. Cat... Fell in tank? I'm sorry but that is hilarious! It would be more funny if it didn't stress the poor guy out! Sounds like you have quite the cast of characters, though! Sherman will get better... The first betta always pulls through! And I am beyond excited. I've given up the foolish notion of getting any sleep tonight... On to the coffee and staring at the clock. Only 9 more hours!
Haha, there's always an open bed at Sakura Hospital but I hope neither your nor your fish ever have to use it. But if you do, I'll put you between my guy Crichton who bit off all his tail after getting stressed (cat fell in the tank next to his and caused a huge commotion) and my paralyzed betta Scooter who can't swim but scoots around on his tail. And I hope Sherman gets better, too, he's my special guy because he was my first betta. I can't wait to see your new guy and his sister. You're probably like camped out by the door waiting for the mail, haha.
Oh no... I do not like to hear updates like that. I'm sure he'll be fine though... I'm still wait-listed for a bed at the Sakura Hospital... Popular place, for sure! New guy (and his sister!) arrive tomorrow morning... Which is in a few hours...
