Thanks guys! I got the bowl at a thrift store for $4 while looking for a birthday vase. It was a good find IMHO. So far no leaks which is awesome as I am in a carpeted apartment.

And I do miss Davy Jones he was a spirited little bugger with an endless pit of a tummy. But Mr. Luthor is quite nice as well, bit more heavy set and impressive of fin. At least to my un-discerning human eyes. Who knows what girl bettas like?

Added cherry shrimp to shrimp-minnow bowl!

I fear that shrimpies in betta bowl have gone to a better place. At least for the betta.

They seem to be going fabulously, immediately fond of the overgrowth of duckweed. So far have not bothered fish nor fish bothered shrimpies. Remaining ghost shrimp have remained in seclusion towards to back somewhere.


Yes they are super washed out looking but maybe if they eat the orange-y looking fish food they too will get orange-y! Maybe.

Mr. Luthor inspecting the (dirty) algae patch before weekly cleaning. Is slave driver, that guy :

Thank you for your support peeps!

Ah yeah, I borrowed a macro lens from school! Besides taking close ups of my roommate's nose, I peppered my bowl with them, too. Prepare for close up fishy and invert pores they would rather have airbrushed out :

What a hoot! I love this journal.

You are inspiring me to go get a bowl. For someone with the *other* MTS already, this may or may not be a good thing...
