A dog and a Betta.
« on: December 11, 2010, 10:02:51 AM »

Okay this topic is about a dog and a betta.

Dog
A stay dog ran into our back yard messing with Pancho. I checked her collar to send her back to her owner but it said Miami-Dade county which is hours from our house. So I called the number and it wasd Miami-Dade Animal Services. They said they didn't have the dog and a person took it a few days ago with the same tag. So they called the owner and he said their dog was at home but their tag fell of of their dog and had got a new one. In this county they have a law that your dog has to have a tag. So I concluded that the dog didn't have a tag and some guy found her stray. So he too  her in a found that tag on the ground and put it on the dog. Right the dog is in my patio laying around.

Betta
I just wanted to know what I could do to make a 2 gallon vase a great betta home.

Thanks to anyone who answers! Grin

Welll that's so nice you are taking care of the poor stray dog.  What will you do with her?  Is there a shelter you can call?
You could keep her Wink

You can put some gravel or glass jewels in the bottom and a nice plant like lucky bamboo or I have a peace lily in my other bowl. Smiley

 I called a shelter and they are going to look for a microchip and get the owner so I can give them the dog.

Thanks Minde

wow, awesome, $100! Is it for your family or just for you??? If it were just for you you could get another tank! *wink wink* LOL

My betta tank is a 1 gallon bowl with a 1 inch layer of gems at the bottom, as well as an arch decoration and a broad-leafed plant. I like using plants that have wide, flat leaves for my bettas, because all my bettas enjoy sleeping and resting on them.  Grin

Why would you like to buy a mirror? Fighters would think there is another male there and would fight their own reflection... bit stress I believe Sad

Okay good thing the petstore didn't sell em' so I'm just not buy it . By the way I got the new beta yesterday it had fin rot in the petstore so I got it because I felt sad for it. Luckily it isn't severe and its getting way better. I put some meds in and warmed up the water.

This may sound d*mb but hey I ask some pretty silly questions, but you can't have a betta near a mirror?? As my tank that Clementine is currently in which will be my betta's home one day, well it sits on my dressing room table which has a mirror behind the tank. Should I buy something so it can't see the mirror??  Embarrassed

Noo, I don't think that would hurt him Smiley He'd probably get used to it too Smiley But buying a mirror just to make the betta flare the gills and fins in fighting stance is somewhat mean Wink

Thanks Nossie, if it does stress him out I'm sure it will be easy to cover that side of the tank so he can't see that other evil betta Tongue

That would always work Smiley Like, putting a nice background poster on, or some ornament/plant to cover it Smiley

The only good thing about having a mirror on hand -wich sure everybody has- is if your betta is really sick and you're treating him and you wanna know if he's recovering... then you shortly can hold a mirror so he can see his own reflection. If he starts to react  and gets mad and tries to fight "the other fish" he's on the mend, if he still is lethargic you should be worried and alert and try to get him treated properly and healed asap.

This use of a mirror is like using one in First Aid to see if the casualty is still breathing or not.

BUT I"D NEVER EVER TEASE HIM WITH A MIRROR TO WATCH HIM FLARE. !

My one betta flares every time he sees me!
I think it's like a dog begging for food.
Of course I give him a treat so that reinforces it. Wink
