These photos are not mine. I found them here.
He came in a vase like this with a peace lily plant on the top. He didn't look happy in there but at least he was alive. How could I resist those sad eyes? He has been in the vase in the dining room for three days. Who knows how long he had been at the store? I keep checking on him. He's okay so far. The cats haven't found him yet.
This morning I was thinking about my new fish and how sad he looks in that vase. I mean how can he possibly breathe in there? What does he eat? I read somewhere that he could nibble on the roots of the plant. Not so. Betta fish eat insects and worms. I bought some freeze dried worms and beta fish food.
Then I remembered the Fish House I bought in March. It is still in the box it came in. I do that a lot. Buy things then stash them somewhere until some inspiration comes along. My little blue fish has inspired me. I won't be able to stash him anywhere. I have another mouth to feed now!
Remember the Fisher Price dollhouse furniture I purchased on Ebay a while ago? It is still in a box too.
Now I'm thinking of furnishing my blue fish's house with the Fisher Price furniture. :D I need to find out what kind of harmless glue to use to stick the furniture where I want it.
I even bought some "betta fish water" today. Two, one liter bottles. That should be enough for Blue Fish to swim in for a while...
If my fish survives until his new home is finished I will show you a picture of him.
See how easily I get distracted? I really need to start my Christmas shopping!
