Newest Member of the Family

Meet Dexter.Dexter is a Siamese Delta Tail Fighting Fish. We are still trying to figure out how often to feed him. The box that the aquarium came in says to feed it 2 to 3 times a week, the package of food that also come in the box says "feed your betta 2 to 3 times a day." We finally found that most websites suggest once a day, with one day off. And that they like a variety of food, so I guess I need to look for freeze dried brine shrimp.

We also read that Dexter might like a cave or something to hide behind so he can have privacy and to rest. Of course we also learned that it can't be sharp or scratchy because it might tear his fins. And I thought dogs and cats were a high maintenance animals, the more I keep reading about Betta's, maybe a goldfish would be better.

Lauren is happy and getting to know her new friend. Did have to explain you can't carry him around the house, he needs to stay in his "home base" in the kitchen.
