How’s this pose? Get my good side!
This, folks, is Tom. Or so we’ve begun to call him. I think he must belong to someone around our neighborhood but he’s spends most of his time on our porch begging. He’s real scared of loud noises but he likes being petted and stuff. I thought he was a small dog with a weird tail until my pet told me he was a cat. Well, he looked like one! Come to think of it though…he does talk funny…oh well. You win some, ya lose some. 🙂 I don’t think he likes Murdoch. Murdoch was sitting at the door, pretty as you please, watchin’ ol’ Tom when…whammy! Tom attacks the door. Murdoch giggled and watched some more. Tsk, tsk. I worry bout that kid sometimes. Anyways, just thought I’d let you know about Tom. 🙂
On Monday the 15th, my first betta fish died. He had been suffering from dropsy, a deadly disease, for nearly a month. He was my very first fish and opened the world of aquariums to me. His name was Peach and he was a pink pastel VeilTail Betta; and the only betta I’ve ever seen who had blue eyes.
In Memory of my first betta, Peach
Upon losing my first fish, my mom took me to PetSmart to get a new one to ‘replace’ Peach. No fish can replace Peach but the aquarium seemed so empty and lifeless with only a snail inhabiting it. I ended up getting a young male Halfmoon Betta and a shrimp named John (long story about the name). So here’s some pictures of the new guy!
He’s a complete opposite of Peach; He’s shy, not aggressive, not a little pig when it comes to eating. Peach loved to eat, was very curious, and liked to chase my fingers. This little guy is curious but cautious; but he’s slowly coming out of his shell. Every time I go to his tank, I drop in one pellet. (Which means I can’t go near very often since he can’t eat a lot.) This shows him that people mean food and he’ll swim to the front looking for food when someone comes near instead of hiding.
I’m still in the process of picking a name for him so for now, we’ll call him “the new guy”. 🙂
