  • Max's House

    I recently stole Max's 15g to make a sump, what betta needs 15g anyways? lol, So now he is set up in this nice 10g Filtration is a sponge filter "rated" for 25g, lighting is one 18" t-8 6500k and the tank is kept at 79F. Other inhabitants include Mystery and Trumpet snails and the plants are java fern, Christmas moss and subwassertang with a few bulbs here and there.



    And the MAN himself He ripped his dorsal a bit yesterday

              Thanks Christine

              I switched to flakes so I don't have as accurate a count as when I was feeding him pellets Zumi. After feeding the other tanks I just stick the wet tip of my finger in and whatever sticks he gets. I guess maybe a dime sized portion of flakes once or twice a day.

                Oh that's quite a bit. Mine seem to have big bellies so I've been doing five Thera+A pellets twice daily, though if they're looking full still I sometimes only do once daily. Boris has zucchini/cucumber for the mystery snails and I'm sure he's been munching on that. Maybe I'll try giving them some flakes too, as a little variety

                  I think you're doing fine with that regimen for now, he is putting on weight well. Maybe once he plateaus we can figure out some adjustments. Variety never hurts! I just switched to flakes because I was spending too much on NLS so my tanks are all on Jon's food now with the exception of some wafers now and again.

                        Welp no flakes for them, Boris pretty obviously turned his fishy nose up at them He veeery slowly took a nibble, chewed on it, and spit it out, then looked at me for pellets, even though more flakes were floating around I put an NLS pellet in and he attacked the think lol. Maybe I'll increase to 6 or 7 pellets twice daily.

                          Beautiful tank Matt I'm Max has forgiven you
                          I must say Max is looking gorgeous as ever such a handsome boy

                          I used to feed Mordin and Henry 5-7 pellets twice a day and fast them on Sundays which would result in tantrums and sulking from the two monkeys

                          EDIT: sorry for the double post I was trying to quote Zumi. Still trying to get used to this phone
