I got a bunch of old stamp sets etc. from my friend and among all of the boxes was a pretty fish bowl. She had used it for door prizes etc. I washed it up and set it on the counter.
Then I thought hey maybe we need a fish. We had a fish tank years ago when we lived in Mesa and we had a Betta (pronouced Bet-ta – did you know that? I always said Bay-ta) years ago too. I know he was in a bowl and we had him quite a while but my memory sucks.
So I headed to the petstore after my downline Make n Takes n Lunch (Toby in his old age needs canned dog food now) and got everything to set up the bowl. It looks so darling and "King Arthur" is what I call him since he is a Crown Tail Male Betta is so beautiful. But now I think I want a bigger tank for him. Not like a huge one that takes up a whole wall but a nice 3 – 5 gallon one that has a filter and a pump, and a light that can sit in the corner on the kitchen counter.
Do any of you have a Betta? What do you use? What do you suggest? Anything you have learned with your experience?
Have an awesome Monday (I am typing this Sunday night and am getting ready for the return of The Walking Dead – where are my kleenexes?).
Thanks for stopping in.
