I almost picked up a male betta today that had all his fins bitten by neon tetras. I am so mad at myself for not picking him up.

Flame - Red and Blue Veiltail Male
Oswald - Blue Halfmoon Male

Yea, most people do 8-10 hours so reducing the lighting is worth a try.

Still kinda bummed about Fern. but I've decided that if one.more female dies I'm rehoming the swordtails and danios and.puttimg the last of my females in a five gallon (heavily planted). they've all live peacefully for like year now, they'll probably be fine.

I get lots of algae on plants, but I'm usually in the 6-8 hour range. I guess it's the natural light hurting there.

My snails are pigging out.
