Apple in his new tank/cage

So Today I decided that it was time to put my betta in his new tank. His other tank had no lid and my cat was constantly annoying him (AND the filtration system was wayyyyy to hard and loud).

Before I put him his new tank I took care of the shrimp. I read somewhere that it was very important to put the SHRIMP FIRST and once the shrimp are completely accustomed to the tank and when they know the best hiding places are, I put  THE BETTA. But I didn’t wanted to take the risk, so I decided to put him in a little cage. Now he gets accustomed to the sound, water but also to the swimming shrimps around him…

He wasn’t very happy first and was constantly flaring (I was surprised because he wasn’t like that in the other tank, when he was alone). I was kind of doubting this whole idea of “happy living shrimp/betta” because he was very territorial..2014-03-31 23.37.39

The shrimp on the other hand didn’t really notice him.. 2014-03-31 23.38.08

Sometimes they came very close to the cage (my betta was immediately very interested but didn’t flare)

So now I will let the betta one week or so in his cage before doing the next step: giving him more space !2014-03-31 23.35.43
