It still worked. I'm always trying to convert the metric system to what I know. Right now I'm trying to figure out exactly how big a betta gets so he doesn't get stuck somewhere in his yet to be new home.
Bettas don’t get very large, my guess would be a max of 2.5 inches..

That's length. But I also need to know width and height. There's a hole in his little mushroom house that worries me. No one says how wide(or tall) they get. I think it would be ok but I'm afraid to chance it. I am going to use rain and distilled water. Thanks for that inspiration.

It’s so hard trying to catch up after a week away!! I’m sure I missed stuff.

Here are some of our Arizona river pix!
We really had a good time and even had rain one day.
The weather was perfect!!

Yes Linda has kept us informed so you don't have to worry about going through all that again - unless you want to of course, you know we are good listeners!!
I hope Fido and the Degus are all well and happy birthday to Coco for yesterday!!
Does Adam know you are back?

If your index and middle fingers together don't fit through easily, don't chance it. Also, is the hole straight, or does it have a bend to it? If there's a bend, it needs to be bigger. Don't forget to check all edges. You don't want shredded fins.

What a lovely tort!!
Beautiful flowers too!!
I'll try to catch a picture when spring turns into summer. When the petals blow off it looks like a snowstorm...butterflies and people love to eat the crab apples. I watch people grab an apple from the tree. (less cleanup for me) This year should be even better. That tree is loaded!

My tortoise still needs the help I'm getting from tortoise forum. And I need the support also. I think he's in a growth spurt even though he's around 17 years old.
