icelightning: XXY male bettafish, started off looking girlish (Default)
I just amused my fish by flailing my socks around wildly.

In other news, I'm still not ready to go out the door to get stuff from the home improvement store.
icelightning: (My Pet Shrimp 2)
Completely and utterly useless. I found more stuff at the Kaboom! store for my shrimp than I found at PetSmart.

Before I get into that, lovely betta barracks system you have there, guys. Too bad you have the current about 3x higher than it needs to be. Bettas are notoriously weak swimmers and any current gives them a problem. While your bettas aren't sick, per say, they quickly grow exhausted until they can't go back to the surface of the water for air... and then they drown. Great job.

So yeah, nothing for marine/brackish aquariums at all. None of their decorations were rated for marine use (they had marble, but marble = death in saltwater), they didn't have any small bags of crushed coral substrate, they didn't have any small cartons of marine salt (except the shitty "let's see how fast this kills your fish!" brand), and they didn't even have any hydrometers to check the specific gravity of water (used to see how much salt you have per gallon).

Maybe I should call about those bettas. They've probably been wondering WTH all their bettas have been dying by the dozens. ><

Seems like I'll have to go to Petco sometime, and after that, I'll have to head to that aquarium store I've heard about. Can't remember its name, but Google will.
