It was awesome though! thank god he didnt jump onto the floor!

Bubble the therapy fish

Bubbles went to a behavioral center today to be a therapy fish that they named Doc Toxin :D
he has a purpose now, other than just looking sad in my living room.

Betta tanks

I am in the market for a new and safer betta aquarium,
so i've been checking out aquariums online, and ran into a few questionable ones.

These are much too small for bettas, so much so, that there is hardly room for movement and bettas love to swim.

RIP Sally.

More bad luck

Today when i turned on the aquarium light I noticed that Klaus "the angry oscar" has developed some sort of light white spot on the top of his head. I don't know what it is as of yet, but i will venture to guess that it is a mold.  If anyone happens to read this blog, and knows what it might be please comment.

Sally got fin rot: update 1

So far Sally has been taking well to everything.
The tank Cleaning was a success and she hasnt responded negatively to the medicine.

Klaus and Stimpy are doing well so far, they've only been part of our home for a few days and we hope to keep them happy and healthy.

Sally got fin rot

I am currently treating Sally for fin rot, and decided to share my process with everyone in case this ever happens to you.

1: Do a complete Tank clean; Some have suggested using bleach, but I am extremely careful with the health of my betta, therefore i use dawn dish soap. It is EXTREMELY important to RINSE, RINSE, and RINSE! If you have rocks i would suggest throwing the old ones out and replacing them as I did.
2: Once you have thoroughly cleaned your betta tank you should add the medication.  For example i went to Wal-Mart and purchased Lifeguard All-In-One Treatment slow release formula.  Follow the specific directions on the back TO THE LETTER.
3: After using the treatment i would suggest changing a minimum of 25% of the water.

** I'm currently on day one of Sally's treatment, but i have treated other fish for this in the past.
** I will keep everyone updated

                   Drew Sally "as a cartoon" the snowmageddon has made me extremely bored.
