:D My sister is bringing a crowntail down from Halifax in the morning. I am desperately hoping he makes it safely; she has no experience with fish. I think I'm more excited about the Christmas Eve crowntail than I am about actual Christmas!

^^ Yup, betta #4. His name will be Nicky cuz he's arriving Christmas Eve, and his fins are green with red tips. Kate will be picking him up at noon tomorrow, just before she leaves Halifax.

Green. I've never seen a green betta. With green and red he's a Christmas fish. He must be a beautiful betta.

Maybe she could get one of those outdoorsman hand-warmer packets that go in your pocket and wrap it in a towel, then put the towel around the bowl. Those things stay warm for a several hours.

^^ From the pictures it looks like his body is either light green or gold... and yes, his fins are red-tipped green. I will likely be flooding the photo forum with pictures when he arrives ^^ His name, Nicky, comes from "St Nick", cuz he really is a Christmas betta

She's arranged to pick him up just before she leaves Halifax at noon tomorrow. He will be going right into a warm car for the trip down.

If she puts him in a styrofoam 'cooler' of some kind before she leaves the house, that will keep the water in his bag from fluctuating more than it has to.

If she doesn't have a cooler...a thick wrapping of newspaper will also provide reasonable insulation...

Newspaper is more likely

Put the funnies facing the tank to give him something to read on the trip...
