Welcome! One thing we're good for is encouraging eachother to bring more of these little guys into our homes. They have such great personalities and they're all so varied. They're like little people.
Tango is my friendly little daredevil and my first betta. He's my avatar. I had him in a 1.5 tetra cube for 6 months so I could prove to my husband that I'd maintain the tank. I had a history of tank neglect when I was a sillier, younger girl. Many fancy guppies lost their lives. :(
I moved Tango into his own planted 16 gallon 6 months ago. He looked so tiny in there. I got some cories to add interest to his life. He follows them around all day. He hunts, always hoping to come upon some prey (poor thing). And he lets me pet him and or bites me. I never know which it will be. He eats from my fingers, I think that's why he bites me sometimes. He's my pal. Because of him I had to have two more. They're so different!
Whiskey lives in a planted hex 5 on my desk. I'm kinda with him all day. He's skittish. He flares at me. He spends all day pacing at the front and watching me. He tries to eat ANYTHING that drifts through his tank. He's kind of a pig. I'm pretty sure I've seen him eat blue green algae. Anything new that goes on my desk, coffee cup, pen, book, he eyeballs it for a while, flares at it, gives it the business.
Kilo is a big softie in a planted eclipse 6 that sits on a window sill between my kitchen and dining room. He's a half giant so he's bigger then the others. He's SO mellow. He never flares, not even at a mirror. He runs and hides. He has big brown eyes. He looks like a puppy. He's so graceful. I had no idea how quick plakats would be. He can stop and turn on a dime. He's really a joy to watch when he's swimming. He's like a big boat crusin' through the water.
