Casa de Bob
So I did a thing...I bought a little baby betta from Petco. Our local Petco is pretty good, and tends to have pretty nice stock, so I took the plunge. His name is Bob.
We set up Bob in a 5 gallon Fluval Edge that we had originally gotten for a hitchhiker mantis shrimp. We used water and filter media from the 80 Gallon community which has been cycled and running for several months. We added IAL and some small pieces of driftwood from the 80gallon, and took a couple of the smaller wendelove java fern out for Bob as well.
Just today we got a couple of catalpa "logs" that were intended for the 8, but they're so small that I gave them to Bob.
He's an interesting little bugger, very curious about everything. He was checking out the log/twigs after I put them in his Casa, gave a couple of flares at it.
It'll be interesting to see what he grows in to, since he was only labeled as a "baby boy".
