They're here!

My aquabid pair is finally here, and thankfully alive! They're settling in right now, but I'll post pictures of them either later on or after work tomorrow.. I was so worried I was going to open the box and get dead fish, but they came while I was at work and my parents figured out all the stuff I left them to get them out of their bags and into their temporary containers. They're all moved into their new tanks now. (:

The male is a double veil tail, white with marbling.. I can't quite tell what the female is, her fins were clamped since I got home and she's only just now starting to relax. I'll have to get some pictures for help on IDing her. Some fin damage on the male, but it'll regrow.

So.

Happy.

Okay, hopefully these links work so I don't have to post 1000000 pictures. xD

These are just the first ones I have, I'll get better ones later.

male;

Thank you! <33

He's looking a bit better now, more swimming less lying on the bottom of the tank. (: I'll get some more pictures when it's lighter tomorrow.

Quick addition; can anyone give me a color/tail type on the female? I want to guess cellophane, or marble.. she has black on her fins, but the rest of her is see-through (I can see her eggs! So cool.).

I'm thinking since she was sold with a VT male that she's also a VT, I just want a confirmation from someone. cx

And blehhh. The male has ich >.> Would have been nice if the woman told me that before she shipped him to me.

I almost bought them!!! But I settled for my HMPK Blue Dragons.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Haha, I'm glad you settled for those guys, then. xD The little female is so, so cute.. she recovered from the trip really quickly and is zipping all over her tank. The male is getting there, I'm sure he'll be fine once I get this ich issue cleared up.

Not right at this moment, since I don't have the time, space or money to properly do it.. I intend on it once I can put my full effort into it and I read up some more on breeding in general. (:
