i keep forgetting that gappy knows cqc

One of many reasons why he’s so cool. B)

…I mean, can you imagine what Jobin must be thinking right now? The dude who just exploded his coworker all over the sidewalk, and who stone-cold murdered all of his associates before that, is now after him. (And, of course, the only logical response to that terror is clearly to use a bucket of fried chicken to summon up an aging limbless rock monster to deal with his problems. Possibly also to have this monster send Gappy a tooth in the mail? I’m not sure what the heck is going on, but I love JJBA so much.) 

While I’m on the subject: I love the tongue-in-cheek fan reading of Gappy as this mysterious, violent freeloader who invades the Higashikata household in order to sponge off Norisuke, ruin Jobin’s legitimate business venture, and steal Joshu’s room/money/girlfriend.

honestly i don't see finnrey or stormpilot as vanilla. they're more... idk, lemon drizzle cakes? it's like, okay you have a sponge base or something, that's some pretty standard and likeable interactions and well-known romantic tropes. and then you have the sweet lemon icing, that's the genuine heart and love that makes them stand out and be so wonderful. or maybe i just like both those ships and lemon drizzle cake. but whatever. either's better than rey/lo.

Lemon drizzle cake is delicious, so I’ll take it.

Hey there, what kind of filter do you use for your betta? Have you modified it in any way? I'm rescuing a betta from an irresponsible owner and want to build the best setup for him, so I'm asking around to a few blogs. Thanks in advance!

Hi! I personally use an unmodified Aquaclear 30 on my 10 gallon tank, which many would say puts out too much flow: in my setup, the outflow is baffled by thick plantings of water wisteria, and I keep the water level pretty high to prevent excessive splashing. This means I keep the tank covered to keep him from jumping: My boy is a plakat, so he’s a jumper, but the benefit of him having short fins means his swimming ability isn’t hampered by the filter current.

For heavier finned bettas, you can either use a sponge filter, or you can modify a hang on back filter. If you’d like to modify a hang on back filter, I’d recommend acquiring filter sponge, and cutting and securing it with rubber bands to fit over your filter intake (to keep filter from sucking up betta tails; bettas are notorious for resting/getting stuck against intake). You’ll also need some sort of baffle to soften the current coming out of your filter. I remember seeing somewhere that someone had cut up a soda bottle to make a makeshift baffle, but I can’t recall where I saw that post originally. Otherwise you may make use of large ornament(s), driftwood, or silk/live plants to soften the current so the little guy won’t get tired from swimming.
