Waiting and worrying!

Waiting and worrying!

Post by KalandraJane on Wed 15 Sep 2010 - 23:35

My new boy is arriving tomorrow morning, a gorgeous royal blue and yellow rosetail... knowing he's in the post being moved about overnight is making me so worried pale I hope he's ok, especially after the state of the box my last betta came in - Ed was just fine but Royal Mail had definitely not handled him with care!

Arghhh. Worry.

No name ideas yet, I'm going to wait until he's here before I think of any Smile

Will get some pictures tomorrow evening! He's going into a small tank on his own temporarily, until my divided tank is finished (blooming ebay materials have not all arrived yet!)

Still no sign of him Rolling Eyes trust Royal Mail... usually they come at 7.30am and I have to go to the sorting office to pick stuff up because the doorbell didn't wake me, now on the one occasion I'm actually up (barely slept a wink) they probably won't get here til lunchtime... grr.

I want my fishy! bounce

Will post pictures later once he's settled in, he is currently floating in the tank in his bag of IAL tea.

I'm going to wait til later to take any, he's a little under the weather. Upon closer inspection he'd sustained a little injury to his gill in transit, a small wound at the top of the gill like he's caught or pulled it somehow. He's ok though and has had some little scraps of bloodworm Smile

It will just be a case of some salt, clean water, and keeping an eye on it to make sure no secondary infections set in.

Good idea, just keep him super clean and keep his light off if his tank has lighting to keep stress to a minimum, looking forward to seeing him!

He looks like your Pluto did but with more blue on his fins Smile

Currently he is residing amongst the anubias in the dark, having gorged on bloodworms.
