Went to Petco tonight to pick up supplies for my new 37G tank that I will be setting up this weekend. OF COURSE I had to peek into the crab tank... While poking around, this little one literally came over to investigate me. Dana has named her PICKLES... She's recently molted with wicked sharp toenails and fuzzy! [img=263x300]http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d197/wicked_annabella/Pickles.jpg[/img] Then I looked in the bottom tank and there was one lonely straw who popped right out the minute I picked him up. Meet Marco... :straw: [img=300x250]http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d197/wicked_annabella/20LMarco.jpg[/img] Then my daughter started bugging me again about a fish. :hula: She used to have a gold fish (Dorothy) at my parents but it died in about a month. I really didn't want to go through that again. The sales girl says, "Get her a Betta." I don't know anything about keeping a Betta and she says, they're easier than goldfish. I look at her like she's pulling my leg, but then I think about how they keep them in the store and figure, Okay. So Dana picks out this little guy who she immediately called BLUES CLUES...go figure. (She's three, she has a limited world....lol!) [img=300x225]http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d197/wicked_annabella/May0107014.jpg[/img] So, anyone who has a Betta (Star? Don't you?) please PM me with anything I should know. Do they like a place to hide in their tank? I already have a "plant". Is there a water plant I should get?
