Disaster Averted

*whew* I had just closed the lid of my tank about ten minutes ago after redecorating, when I looked up only to find a small black widow spider sliding down a web 6 inches over the center of my tank!

Had I been a few minutes slower, I would have had one seriously dead betta!

And I doubt anyone could help me figure out how THAT would change the tank cycling.

roaches. *yuck*

I wasn't concerned about the tank, just joking about that. I could just see my betta thinking I was dropping him a snack and taking a bite out of the black widow.

Thankfully, lucky timing saved him, because I sure didn't notice it before then.

I'm not making the connection

Black Widows don't eat fish...

Fishkeeping wish: That every betta sold finds himself at least a 5g tank...

Wanting better for bettas...
