This summer I'll be setting up a new tank, a 29 gallon with live breeders and driftwood.

W.W.C ~ Weekly Water Changes
Yahoo! I got a filter, so now I'm doing w.w.c instead of one every 3 days. Spoons seems to really enjoy the new filter. He's more active already. I'm using the Tetra Whisper 3i.
EDIT: I went back, and found a photo of George in his tank taken a day or so after this post. Since there are no photos of how his tank used to look, here.

Say Hullo::

I went to the store I bought Kavi from today and get a refund. Apparently though, Refunding wasn't an option. It was live with a dead fish and a lost 10 bucks, or replace the fish. I didn't want to get another fish so soon though! I wanted to go home, do a couple water changes, consider cycling it, etc. Maybe try new food? Buy from petsmart instead? Point is.. There was no option given. I was forced to buy a new fish. SO picked a gorgeous cellophane betta. He has a yellow thing on the top of his head that in my opinion looks like fungus. And he has some cool dark grey streaks in his tail.
I just put him in the bowl a little while ago. Let's see how he settles in, and pray for him not to die. I named him Spoons. Stupid BUT: w.e 

What? No.

I'm in denial. I am most defiantly in denial. My fish died. No! He didn't.. he couldn't have! I only bought him today around 5' o' clock. I did everything right! I conditioned the water, I gave him proper food and acclimated just fine. So he couldn't be dead! Betta's are supposed to be hardy. You know, hard to kill? So how likely is it that he died after I had him 9 hours? No. It's not likely. So he couldn't possibly be dead! I bet he's just sleeping. Taking a long nap after a stressful day. You know, traveling in a car, being dumped in a bowl? Being fed new foods? I get that. Kavi is probably just tired. Just lying at the bottom of the 2 gal bowl, resting. That's it! Hah! Why would I ever think he's dead anyways?

I'm such a noob.

My first fishy swishy! I have christened him 'Kavi'. May he live long and prosper. His name means god of flocks in greek, and is also polish and thai. Very cultural no? :{D  
While at Petco, I also picked up some fish food,

and water conditioner.

Kavi is a dark red crowntail betta.
