New Betta

This weekend after thinking and discussing it for awhile we got Ashley a Betta, we have had them before, but we had decided to wait to get any others till life in the house had settled down and she was old enough to take care of one...shes 11 (gona be 12 next month) so Ken and I took her to wal-mart where we got her a small aqarium, its really cute, then we took her to an old pet store here in town called Whities and got her a Betta and a snail (Ken wanted the snail lol) he is so beautiful, he is a very very bright blue with purple and red on him, he is in a purple aqarium with blue rocks...I will post the pictures tomorrow when I get up lol...

Ashley has named him Martin and the snail is DumDum...she wanted the small aqarium over the bowls and such cause she felt the poor fish had been in a little cup to long and deserved to have more room, hes loving it...he seems to be adjusting well, we got the Betta water conditioner and the proper food, and so far she has done great in taking care of him. As I said above we will post pictures in the morning...I must add he is so beautiful, I have never seen any so bright, we have looked often, but never seen one like him lol...or maybe we are blinded by others cause he is now ours...lol any tips would be much appreciated

lol well we got 2 snails and we had named them twiddle dee and tweddle dum and she now refers to them as DeeDee and DumDum and the names came about because they kept climbing in the bag on the way home and she was afraid they were crawling out of the water lol...and she named the Beta Martin after Full House, the episode where Michele got a fish and took a bubble bath with it...lol they keep us entertained

Martin is doing great, his coloring is so vibrant...at night if someone forgets to turn is tank light off at night he will do the whole full hood attack thing at his reflection in his tank lol, so we are always trying to insure it doesn't happen, we get afraid he will hurt himself attacking the glass...I love to watch him swim around and explore, hes just so pretty...the dog can see him up on the counter and falls asleep staring at him (there is no way for the dog to get close at all) hes just been a greta addition to the family and Ashley has been great taking care of him...I naver have to remind her to feed or really anything...as soon as she gets up she turns on his light and feed him, and then feeds him at night...she loves taking care of him lol..

anyways thats our update lol
