Originally when I set up this 3.7g, I planned on having a shrimp tank. But some time ago (during the 4 months it took to cycle it!) I decided on a Betta instead. Everytime I go to the LFS
, it breaks my heart to see them in those tiny little jars. I usually avoid looking altogether.
On Saturday I decided to LFS
and look at the bettas they had. I looked carefully at each one. As I inspected each jar, one Betta who was the first I looked at kept looking at me. After every few jars I'd glance upwards and there he was watching me.
Ultimately, he picked me.
Meet my new betta boy. He doesn't have a name yet. Happy for suggestions.
As soon as I got the camera out, he flared and put on a performance. He was being such a show pony the pics are a bit blurred.
So far, he appears well and taking food. Last night, he built his first bubble nest!
