My betta is going to be getting his new 5 gallon tank next weekend They will be finally in store and on sale. I when today to get 5 Medium Amazon Swords for $5 I thought that was a good deal.

The only reason why I even when to the store was because my mom felt sorry for me kus me little platy just died this morning. She had been acting strange for a week before but I just thought it was the meds in the tank and all the was upsetting her (its for fin rot). This morning I can’t find her so I looked under the little cave and there she was diedL I think maybe it was an intestinal disease as her stomake was blotted a little and discolored.

Well as I was at the store I got the plants and my betta frozen bloodworms that he is eatingJ. I had a look at the tank I was hoping to buy. It’s Waterhome desktop bowfront aquarium. Its 5 gallon and comes with the filter. Its was going to be on sale for 39.88 the next weekend so I decided to wait but had a look at it any way. They where selling it for 99.99!!!!!!!!!! Is that not too much for a 5 gallon tank? That’s over how much I played for my 20g!  The Sale is only on for 2 days so I’m going the first day.  What elce can I put in with my betta in the 5g?


This is my betta I just got a good picture of himJ I’m not shur what to name him any ideas?

He is gorgeous.  I love his veiltail!  He kind of looks like a Ricky to me.  I am having a hard time coming up with names too so maybe you can help me with mine later next week.  But I like Hulk too.

And yes that is way too much for a 5 gallon tank. Most of the regular priced ones I have even seen online are at the most $49.95. I got my tanks at Walmart for $29.95 but they are Hex tanks and a lot of people don't like them.

For some reason the name Royal comes to mind, probably his colors. Sorry to hear about your platy. I've never had any luck with them either; I'm fond of the way they look and swim but I just can't seem to keep the little critters alive, and I'm reluctant to try again.
