New Homes For Our Guppies & Beta Fish.

About 2 months ago, I did a post on my Guppy fishes. At that time, I placed the guppies in an old fashioned glass punch bowl which I took out from my store room. If you are interested, you can click here to take a look at it. 

The few guppies I acquired sort of re-ignited my hubby's interest in guppy rearing as a hobby. From there on, there was no stopping him. He retrieved an old earthen pot from the garden and he transferred the guppies over to the earthen pot which he placed just outside our main door. His friends happily gave him more guppies to add to the pot.

Few days later, hubby came back from the pottery shop with this water feature consisting of a earthen pitcher and a base. The sound of water flowing from the pitcher is very calming and relaxing to our soul and spirit. The earthen pot on the right will be the nursery for the guppy babies. We now have 2 new homes for our guppies.
Photo #2 - Hubby wrote John 14:13-14 on the handle on this pitcher.
Jesus replied that people soon became thirsty again after drinking this water.
"But the water I give them," he said, "becomes a perpetual spring within them,
water them forever with eternal life."
(John 14:13-14, The Living Bible-TLB)

In May 2016, I posted about my April Flame which was a Red Beta fish or Siamese Fighting Fish. It died and I got myself another new Beta fish. I couldn't find a red one so I settled for the one below.
 It took over this tiny glass bowl as its home.
Some have earlier commented that this bowl is too small for my Beta fish.
 And I have to agree with them. This is indeed too small.
Since all the guppies have shifted to their new home, this Beta fish can now take over the punch bowl.
 The punch bowl is so much bigger and more space for the Beta fish to swim around.
 The only setback is that we can't see the fish through the sides of the punch bowl.
 I gave it a tiny underwater garden with some water plants. Hope the water plants will increase for the Beta fish to enjoy.
I think for the time being, my Beta fish is quite happy with its new home. I am thinking of getting a better home with see through sides for me to enjoy the Beta fish.

For this world is not our home;

we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven.

  16. What are the triangular and round green things floating in the pottery? You have a lot of guppies, and they look very active and healthy! The Beta fish is pretty. I agree, you should get something to see him better. For some reason, whenever I see any, they are in very tiny bowls. They just cannot like that! I love what your husband wrote on the pot!!!! It is so appropriate!

    1. Thank you, Ginny. It is true, in the shops they are all kept in very small bottles. The triangular and round green things are floating water plants. Have a blessed Sunday!

  22. Those guppies are beautiful -- I didn't know they came in so many colors. And a water feature is a great benefit for you and for the fishies! Interesting reading in the post above how you made the 'fences" for the water plants -- very good idea.
