Love on the Rocks

Since I’ve posted my last entry, I’ve thought of hundreds of reasons why I shouldn’t ever consider adopting. I know this blog is full of my rants (because that is when I’m most motivated to post) but I like my life this way. Or should I say I prefer my life this way. (?)

Meet the newest member of my family: SKY

Sky

Sky is a male betta fish. That is the container he came home in.

This is his new home. It is a 2.5 gallon aquarium. It came with nothing. No rocks. Nothing but a filter. So I had to buy rocks, plants and ‘toys’.

Sky’s new home

The blue plant is fake obviously. The other plant is a real aqua plant (floating on top). I’m going to buy more aquatic plants the next time I go to the pet store. I think most bettas would want more hiding places.

Happy Sky?

I also have video of Sky!! 😉

He definitely needs more of something. I need to get him a cave to hide in. The plants are more for me 🙂 but Bettas love to hide and swim through plants also. I really wanted to put my aquatic frogs in there too but I chickened out. They are doing fine where they are now so why even risk it? Bettas get along fine with african dwarf frogs.

I grew up with fish (and snails, a guinea pig & ants). I can’t believe how much I’ve forgotten. I feel like I’m starting over again. I hope I can keep Sky and M & M alive. I don’t have room for any more fish. I want to get silver dollar fish once I move into a house. I’ve been reading about them and they seem perfect for me plus I love the way they look.

I want two of those in a 5 or 10 gallon aquarium. Yes, I’m a fish geek. I don’t like cleaning out their tanks though. (does anyone???). I currently have 1 fish, 2 frogs, and 1 fifteen year old dog. I’m done…for now. I’m geekily happy about going to the pet store after yoga on Thursday. I’m going to buy all my water buddies brine shrimp (a treat). And I’m going to buy another aquatic plant.

I will be a nervous wreck when I have to clean the aquarium. It brings back childhood memories of when my fish would die after a water change. 😦 😦
