The "HAND" (that thing that feeds me) has been very remiss in introducing me - so I will take matters into my own fins! Hello - I am Blish a Siamese Fighting Fish (or Betta Splenda). I am getting on in years (nearly as old as that BIG Dog Fish that lives here) and have lost a lot of my color but I can still be a feisty little dude when I want to be. Oh - my fins are not raggity either - I am a Doubled Tailed Crown Java Betta and that is the way they are meant to look. The "HAND" just bought me a nice new tank and I am enjoying all the extra room and being able to watch the world outside the water. Do you like the four way me look - I was resting in the corner when the "HAND" snapped this photo.
Now something I have noticed is a vase of flowers next to my tank and the "HAND" says it is because spring is coming. There are some white daffodils (the "HAND" says they were meant to be yellow) and some purple Hyacinth which are very fragrant. The "HAND" also says the mint is growing again and the parsley - but it is growing outside of the veggie patch and not in it. The "HAND'S" most favorite rose is also growing and she seems most happy about that. I did enjoy having those rose flowers near my tank last year.
I must admit I do like having some greenery around my tank and I even have a nice selection in my tank too. In particular I like to lay on one large leaf with my nose close to the surface because I am a labyrinth fish - that means I breath air and would drown if I couldn't reach the surface. As it is my nature to fight - I have MY tank entirely to myself and I quite enjoy being pampered by the "HAND"
YES - I guess the "HAND" does take very care of me even if "IT" hasn't shared knowledge of my existence before. Now if only the "HAND" could stop those Dog Fish from swimming past my tank all day long - truly they make me dizzy with all their comings and goings. And why can't they blow silent bubbles like I do instead of making all that noise - it is so loud sometimes it make my tank vibrate!
Time for another nap I think - hopefully it won't take another 5 years before the "HAND" shows me off again.
