Sakura, do you mean the Power Filter or the Multi-Filter? Because with the power I couldn't get a Puffer

Hi Sakura! Thanks! The naming theme was actually by accident the first two times. Didn't realize it until a friend pointed it out. And of course the third time was on purpose XD

Here's his intro thread in the diseases forum. He's needing fin help. Poor guy. They were keeping him in this weird custom display rectangle thing that made it impossible to do 100% changes let alone get him out of there. That was quite the ordeal in of itself :<

Diablo: Marineland Duetto Multi-Filter 50, rated 66 GPH.

Tisia: Hehehe, pics, pics!

fishcurl: I'll pop right over.

nel: I understand. I was kind of the same way when my first betta died while I was in 3rd grade. I understood he was dead but the emotional impact wasn't there like it is now.

When Zues, my first parrotlet, died, I didn't get the emotional impact because I only had him for 2 days( not my fault at all, I'd rather not talk about it, but he wasn't weaned) but if Sprite died now.........I would literally go crazy with grief. And good, I can get a puffer then :P i've decided, when I ready for the tank, go to the LFS( they have super pretty bettas, but they tend to have finrot) and find the most unusual/pretty color, finrot is ok, I don't care.....if none call to me, i get da Puffer.

fishcurl, cute new guy :)

Tisia, did you get another betta??? I laughed out loud (really loud) at your last post. hehehe.. *edit* I see you did. WOW what a NICE RED!!! :D Awesome find.

I will get some pics of Beau's lipstick...... it's just barely coming in... I'm a little sad about it. I loved his peachy face.

Pencil is still bloated and breathing heavy. He looks maybe SLIGHTLY better... but, still pretty bad. Not as bad as Apache was though. When Apache had dropsy, I barely hesitated to put him at rest. But, Pencil might pull through MAYBE... I've just never seen one so swollen... I will try to post a pic of him too...

Fighter, thanks for caring about Pencil too. :)

Sakura, thank you too :) I am glad there are other people who care about my fish besides me. lol

My pets:
Celie the spoiled 8 yr old Chihuahua
Arwin the naughty Papillon puppy

No fishies for me right now... expecting a baby in June 2013!

Diablo, sounds like a plan. I really like the Marineland filter. I actually have an AquaClear 20 and a Marineland Duetto 50 in my 10g, trying to filter out I really don't know what. Pretty sure I'm overfiltering.

Tisia, he's GORGEOUS! What a super stunning red, oh wow.

Smellie, I'm saying lots of fishy prayers for Pencil.

me? I would never >_> lol, can't really tell in those pics but he looks like velvet in real life. I'm thinking of naming him Antho, short for anthocyanin which is apparently what makes red velvet cake red, lol

hopefully he stays somewhat piebald I love his fleshy colored face too

fact that Pencil is still eating is always good
