I had my fish meeting today (whew.. that was a drive!) and I know the president of the club had said if anyone had any fish to give away to bring them but I didn't see anyone show up with any.. I was kind of bummed when right before we left one of the guys said he brought something for me!
Here they are! Sibling pair White HMPK. They are still pretty young (can't remember how young he said they were) so the male doesn't actually have a full HM spread yet but thats fine. I'm sure he'll grow into a beautiful fish.
I named the male Lestat (from Interview with a Vampire) and the female Phoebe (from Friends).
Lestat (I'll try to get better pics tomorrow)
Better one of his fins.. he has a small nip out of his anal fin
When I dumped the male in he went to the bottom and then shot up to the top for air so fast I thought he was gonna jump
I think these guys are going to be really fun!
On top of my new fishies (betta count up to 7) I got a 6 gallon eclipse with out filter but with sand/gravel substrate, 3 excellent pieces of driftwood. Several fake plants (until I get real ones), 2 caves, peat pellets for my water hardness, a 2 gallon tank, and 3 different kinds of real live plants! ALL FREE... I was floored.
Heres a few pics of all the stuff I got.
Malo..checking it all out.. he is a big fish enthusiast LOL
I am so excited.. I wish I could start breeding right away. As it is this pair will probably be too old to breed once I'm able to get started. I'm also hoping to get at least one nice HM male at our show in may (so if anyone is in Perry GA on May 1st stop by).. they are having an auction with fish starting at $3.. SHOW quality!... I'm gonna get myself in big trouble
This also marks the end of Jackie's Betta Fish Fraternity.. now we have a girly! I'm sure she'll be the princess LOL. I do plan on dividing the 6 gallon.. I normally wouldn't but it was divided previously and if I can't get all the glue off I want to re divide it in 3 sections so I won't have to look at the glue. We'll see how it goes.
