Sebastian's Tank - Introducing Jimmy










After having Sebastian in a one gallon tank on my desk for a while, I decided to upgrade and give him a much better tank with a lot more space. I have a small filter and an automatic fish feeder on it to make sure that he's living somewhere clean while also being well fed. Previously in his life, Sebastian hadn't ever been in a tank with a filter, so the current created by it was too strong for him to be able to swim comfortably in it, so I cut off a piece of a luffa and put it over the end of the filter to diffuse the current so it's more manageable for Sebastian. I also have a moss ball, his same castle from before, and some fake foliage. Sebastian likes being able to hide, so he has plenty of hiding places in this new set up. 

I have the tank on a little table with a lamp near my chair in my reading nook, so when I sit there I can see him swimming around. I'm not sure if he likes having me there because fish don't talk, but I certainly enjoy his company while working on homework!

For Christmas, I was really delighted to get an African Dwarf Frog (Jimmy) and a Black Racing Snail (Shellbert)! Even though Sebastian is an aggressive type of fish, he'll only fight with other fish, so the frog and snail aren't in danger at all being in the same tank with him. My little brother came up with the names after I spent a day trying to come up with some myself. This is their debut here on my blog! 



If you have any questions let me know, I'll see you on Tuesday!
