Sad News Friday

Huxley died today. I came home and was about to feed the fishes, when i noticed he wasnt in his bowl. He had jumped out of his bowl, which is a very common for Betta Fish to do. It was really sad to think he died that way. I had a cover on his tank, with only a space open so i can put food in. He must've known where it was open. We sure will miss him :(

By the way, moms friend took my memory card to my camera, so we arent able to take pictures. We will get back, ASAP, we sure miss blogging!

But then i started to miss the snow:(

The Betta Blog

Happy Monday everyone. So sorry we did not blog yesterday, I'm still not feeling better. In fact,
i stayed home today. Jazz & Felix are being my little nurses for the day :)

Today i felt like sharing some of the smallest members of the Cape Cod Crew.. my 7 betta fish! I adore these fish, they are so peaceful and very entertaining to watch. Call me crazy, but i love them like i love Jazz, Felix & Freedom, and i do my best to keep them as healthy & happy as can be!

Candi was the first ever betta fish i took home. She was actually a late birthday present. I bought her on February 27, 2011. She is a veiltail female betta. Candi is a pretty unqiue fish cause of her color. She looks white, but really she doesnt have a color! Shes a cellophane! A cellophane betta is a betta who is pretty much clear, and you can see right through her. You cant really see through her clearly.

The second fish i had bought was Wishy. Wishy came home on March 6, 2011. Wishy & Candi were supposed to share a bowl (female bettas can share bowls if they get along) Unforntuatly, Candi did not like Wishy, so i had to move Wishy out to her own bowl. Wishy is a crowntail female, and a very dark beautiful blue coloring. Shes one of the sweetest fish.

Merci came home on March 19, 2011. She is like a minature Candi, but a little brighter. She is a cellophane too, with a weird black spot on the side of her neck. I had noticed merci for a while in the pet store, because of that spot. When i saw her that day, i thought she spent way to long in that container. So, i took her home. She now lives with Wishy in Wishys bowl. Those two are inseprable, and get along great with each other. Merci can sometimes be a bully to Wishy, but they never get serious.

Nemo was my third betta, and my first male. He came home March 13, 2011. Hes a crowntail male of a rusty red color with yellow sparkles. Hes very hansome. When i was in PetCo, i was looking for a new betta fish, and when i looked up, i noticed Nemo looking at me. I just had to take him home. I named him Nemo, because he "found his way home."

I dont know why i named Huxley that name, but i like the name a lot.
It was March 30, 2011 when i took home Huxley. He is a very beautiful crowntail like Nemo. Huxley seems like a dark blue color, but hes actually a dark green blue with little reds on his tail. He was so scared of me at first, and he still gets scared, but he has gotten much better with me.

Job is a very special betta. I never intended on buying him on August 3rd, 2011. When i was in PetCo, he was very close to death, and i felt like giving him a chance to live. So i took him home and set him in a bowl. He luckily pulled through, and is still with me now. "Job" (pronouced Joeb) is a character in the Christian Bible who had a rough beginning but a happy ending. I felt like the name suited him much. He is orangeish red delta tail.

The most current newest betta i have is Yuki. I got him on December 18, 2011. He is a blue veiltail. "Yuki" is japensanse for snow. I named him that because 12-18, it was snowing (barely..). Im hoping he will warm up to me soon.

Well, those are our finned friends. If you have any fish (betta or not!) we'd be happy to hear about them:)

This isnt 2 inches?

Its a Snow Day in MA!

Yikes, i woke up and there was more snow. There was only supposed to be 2 inches coming, but we got a lot more than that. I am under weather, so i stayed in bed for half the morning. I couldnt resist, no matter how sick i felt, i had to bring the dogs & Freedom outside. Jazz ran around with Felix and eve tried playing with Freedom. Felix was just in a wonderland, he really likes the snow! When i put the crew inside, i noticed our neighbors dog walking around. I went outside again, barefoot and coatless, and came over to the dog. Felix and Jazz managed to run out behind me. Thanks to them, they kept the dog, whos name is Pharoh, occupied while i ran inside to get boots and a leash. After they played and ran around, i was able to get the dogs inside and returned Pharoh back home. We hope yor having safe & fun snow days too!

Snow?? Indeed!!

Lookee here! We got some of that white stuff! It all came last night, only a couple inches tho. I personally dont like snow,but only on christmas do I! But I was excited to see the first snow of the season. So i got Felix & Jazz and put them in the yard. I got Freedom in his harness and took him outside.

Jazz doesnt like snow. & Felix seems to love it. He kept trying to eat it. This is my first experience seeing Felix in the snow.

This is the same story for Freedom. I had gotten him in the spring time last year, so this was also, my first experience seeing him in the snow. & i might be wrong, but it may also be his first time in the snow!

He didnt seem to like it that much............ Afterward sometime playing (falling on my butt two times cause of Felix) i brought them back inside, and got them cuddled up for warmth!

Happy Snow Day!!
