    Last night i got the 10g cleaned up for clayton and transfered him to it. I bought his new heater (75W) and installed it just before i put him in it. he was just listless. He wasnt moving at all. I thought he would go about exploring but he didnt. So upset i went to bed. This morning i walked over to his tank and i see him just dragging himself. I felt so bad for him, i decided to feed him. He was going up for the food. So there i go and grab a flake and put it up to his face holding it with my fingers. As soon as he saw this he flared (i wasnt expecting it at all!!!) and he ate right off my fingers. Then i started playing with him LOL i would dip my finger on one side of the tank and he would swim up to it. He is now swimming around eating. He still has alot to go, but just seeing him interact with me made me so happy. So i gave him another flake (handfed) and he ate it :) I think he trusts me since he lets me get close to him. I took a video of him eating from my fingers and playing, and i also took a few pictures of him to see how bad shape he was in, but hopefully that will change soon. I will upload the video as soon as photobucket finishes loading it LOL

    He looks much better in the vid than in the pic. It's so fun when a betta interacts with you! Cowboy likes to swim right up to me and it always makes me laugh. :D
