  1. Planted ten gallon 11-21-09

    I don't know if anyone reads/follows this blog but if anyone does I am sorry I wait so long to update my blog.

    There have been a lot of changes to my 10 gallon so I will just list them:

    • I got twelve neon tetras
    • I got one ghost shrimp
    • I spread out the java moss
    • I put a mesh bag over the filter intake so that fish/my ghost shrimp would not get sucked in
    • I added a co2 system for the plants
    • not sure if I already mentioned this but I got a heater
    • also not
  2. New planted ten gallon 10/20/09

    This blog is no longer just about Fred. I have a new planted ten gallon!

    The lighting is 6700 k and it is a total of 3.6 watts per gallon.

    The tank is filtered by a Marineland Penguin 150 Bio-wheel power filter.

    The tank is currently being fishless cycled so that is why there are no fish yet.

    Here are some pics (the one with two pieces of wood is the newest one):

  3. Fred the Betta Fish 10/12/09

    Boy do I have a lot to write about.

    I will try to make it quick.

    Fred got fin rot so he was in a hospital tank for a while. But Fred is getting better so I moved him back into his usual tank after doing a few major water changes (to try to get rid of as much of the bad bacteria as possible and also to lower nitrite).

    I bought some java moss and some java fern hitched a ride.

    Fred has a couple of new "friends". Two snails ...
  4. Fred the Betta Fish 9/14/09

    Sorry I have not posted in a while. First the news: I have finally started doing daily water changes until the tank is cycled, and Fred has a new aerator pics later in the post. I am a little concerned about Fred, Fred has a little split in his tail, it's not growing one day it was just there. I am watching the split in his tail and it does not appear to be getting any worse. The split looks natural, kinda like it is a natural part of Fred.

    Here are some new pic's of Fred: ...
  5. Fred the Betta Fish 8/29/09

    Today Freds airline got caught on the lid to my tank, so when I lifted the lid the airstone got pulled out of the gravel, this keeps happening. I was unable to push the airstone back in place with my gravel vaccuum (spelling?) so now it's sitting exposed in my tank looking ugly, here's a pic:

    Other than that Fred is doing well and is rapidly progressing in his training.

    And here are some new pics of Fred:
