7/19/09 Should have updated this ages ago…The Betta is officially named “TROOPER.” I attempted to “balance” the tank, but later learned that it was too small to do it. In the meantime, Trooper was looking pretty wan. I then went out and bought a second tank set up and now prep the one tank and simply transfer him into every 4-5 days. He is now robust and has grown and is a very good boy! I fast him on Saturday, then on Sunday he receives a few chunks of a defrosted frozen pea which prevents constipation. Yes, fish do get constipated! So “Troop” hung in there while I learned all this… hence, the name “TROOPER”!!
Of course, he is now on camera most of every day via the webcam that you can access from the tab at the top of the home page!
