Hi, some of you probably remember me, some not. I have not been on in a long time.
We moved from WI to WA state so I sold my 33g and gave away all of my fish and plants to a co-worker. I drained my pond and gave away my pond goldfish also. I was left with Marchello my mustard gas betta, Marchello. I didn't trust anyone to take care of him and knew he'd probably die under a beginners care so didn't want to take the chance of giving him back to the pet store. He is about 2 years old now and I'm very fond of him. I made up water ahead of time for the road trip, put him in a container with some christmas moss. Everynight at the hotel I switched his water, put a drop of Prime in and hoped he'd be ok being bounced around the car every day. He made it across our four day trip and I set him up temporarily at my sisters house (him and his two nerite snail enemies that he loves to flare at). We're all moved into our remodeled house now and he did end up needing a treatment of kanaplex but now seems back to his happy self. His fins have always been very thin (as many are) but other than some shredding at the tips he's on the mend.

Oh my goodness, welcome back Cindi!!!
Everybody missed you so much, we waited for you!
I love your story about Marchello, it’s a long journey!

I am glad that you made it through the long and tough move, those are always hard, especially when you have aquariums and fish. Marchello is such a wonderful name, he's a cute one! I hope his fins heal up again. Anyways, thanks for coming back, everyone was missing you, and this forum isn't the same without an old pro online
