The deep end of the Betta tank
Over a year or so ago someone started a thread about Betta Fish and how much fun they are to have.
I just had to go get one. Do not ask me what possessed me except that as a kid I always had a fish tank, never with much luck keeping them alive however.
Never did that fish have to live in a flower vase after I saved him from the horrible confines of the pet shop!
Anyway, fast forward to now.....I now have Mr Fishee in a 20 gal long filtered aquarium with roomies. He is really big (for a Betta I think!) lovely and so "friendly". His roomies started out as 2 tiny speckled Cory cats for a few weeks to make sure Mr Fishee would play nice. Then I added Neon Tetras and a Pleco.
We have all really enjoyed them.
The tank has a stable bio filter and pretty much takes care of itself now with 25% h20 changes and a light gravel vacuum every 2 wks or so.
Did I mention that this big tank is in my kitchen, on the counter and is pretty much the focal point of the kitchen?
My Parents live with me and my Mom has taken over the task of feeding them and they are cooed to like they are babies!
Had to share as it has been really enjoyable. And all caused from just reading COTH.....
