lost 2 of my guys last week...

I lost Big Al to fin rot on monday. We fought to cure him for over a month but more and more of his fins were being eaten away. I came home from work and found him floating in the top of his tank. He was very feisty even at the end, flaring at everything and gobbling up his food as if I never fed him. He is the beauty in my avi.

And the new guy I got 2 weeks ago died on friday. He was a stunning purple half moon double tail that didn't make it out of the QT tank.

Aussie Boys
Dexter- Black Tri
Finn- Red Merle

Bis- Black Orchid Crowntail

Tail fins and dorsal fins,Spread, expand, as well as sail,When flying in full mass,They captivate like nightingales,Attempting to breed baby fry,Their actions may surprise,For how betta fish procreate,Differs from routine rise...
