    Look what I found at petco today! I had to get him... He's going in my empty 5.5g with some plants. Not sure what kind yet.

    I have to pick a cool name for him now.

    This pic doesn't do him justice. I'll try to get a better one when I get him all set up.

    And of course I forgot substrate. The only thing I have right now is blue gravel. I guess I got a little carried away. LOL

    Lol, I only had a bowl with a heater and some pebbles and a few decorations when I "impulse" bought mine lol, so I think you're doing better than me haha!

    Yep. Besides, I think he will be happier in a 10g anyway.

    Technically, yes. There's a subwassertang ball in it. I have to figure out what I want to do with it. I wanted sand, but white and black sand wouldn't look good imo. And brown sand could be mistaken for food. So right now its bare bottom with an asian decor pagoda and that one plant. I MIGHT go mixed black and white sand if I can't find anything else.







    I have 2 pieces of driftwood that I've been wondering what to do with. I'll probably add those. Probably with anubias.







    And I got the wrong filter type too...so there's no filteration yet. I'm hoping my lfs is open today because I need a sponge filter. I have a homade one but its not very appealing.







    And I forgot a pic! It was midnight by the time I got home. I'm in the process of moving so everything is happening all at once. I'll get one later, though. He looks so tiny in the tank. But he ate bloodworms though! He was kinda lethargic when I got him and completely ignored his pellet food when the manager fed him. But he was swimming around when I got him.





    I did a wc in the parking lot with betta water just to be safe.





    And I still haven't named him yet. :(

    I vote for Eragon as a name. 1st thing I think of after hearing dragon. He is a very nice looking betta. I've never seen one with a top fin quite like his.

    I also have 2 aquariums with white and black sand one is more black with a little white(my fav)and the other is mostly black with a little white.I like the way they look but to each there own

    I know the feeling! I saw so many beautiful bettas at a Petco the other day (a different one from the one I usually go to, I had no idea this one was like the jackpot of bettas!), but I put off buying one because I'm going back Thursday to buy a dwarf puffer, so I figured I'd wait until then to decide if I'm going to grab one of the bettas as well! (I mean, I DO have a tank ready, soooo)

    Hi guys. I've been trying to post pics, but it's like trying to herd cats.
    Seriously, idk what this phones issue is. It's a window phone, so it's completely new to,me.

    I'll link a twitter account if its okay with the mods.
