Nice to meet you!
Hello, I am a teen who will be sharing this account with her mother. :) Both my mother and I love anime, manga, video games, writing, reading, and art. We simply love and adore animals. (In fact I always feel guilty when eating meat and even vegetables and fruit! DX) Well, that's a little bit about me, I guarantee you'll get to learn more about both of us by talking to us! :D
We have one dog which is a Shih Tzu mixed with something else. (We think a poodle or a papillon.) We also have two Cockatiels (One gray and one yellow.). We've also own many animals in the past including an iguana and several cats and dogs as well as a rat. And have taken care of many others. ^.^
We have five bettas, which we got recently. One was in poor health and it's scales were peeling away, he's doing much better now though since we bought him from the petstore. (Petco.)
Our first two betta fish were Emmeryn (Named after a Fire Emblem: Awakening character.) and Aquasia.
Emmeryn, despite having a girl's name is a male. He is a Delta tail which we believe to be a Super Betta. We are not completely sure though. His fins are mainly white colored while his torso and head are red/purple. He is in a tank with a Banjo catfish, there have been no skirmishes between the two. Emm, (Emmeryn.), is a beautiful male who's personality varies.
Aquasia, (Named after me trying to think of a name of the color turquiose.), is a veil tail female who has bright bright teal colors. We are pretty sure she is a she, because she gets yellow bands when sighting our other male betta fish through her tank walls. She has two Algae eating shrimp in her tank with a Synodontis Nigriventris catfish named Chrom. (Also named after a FE:A character.) Aqua, (Aquasia.), is a fiesty female who hogs down food to no end. (We try not to overfeed her. She just eats vivaciously. As soon as the pellets are in the tank she eats them right up like she's starving.) Aquasia also has some redness to her fins, but we've tested the water and everything seems to be fine. We are keeping an eye on her just in-case though. Does anyone have any ideas on it? D:)
After these two we have three more males, Sully Luna, Sully Sol, and Lon'Qu. (Names derived from FE:A and the Sullys' colorings.
Sully Luna is iridescent and a bit transparent, but has a pale yellow color which shines like Opal in the light. Luna's tank mates are two Sunkist shrimp and Lissa, another Synodontis Nigriventris Catfish. AKA the upside-down catfish. Sully Luna is also a Delta tail.
Sully Sol has the same types of coloring as Sully Luna. Sol is a Crown tail and has three algae eating shrimp for tank mates.
And finally Lon'Qu is a red Delta tail male who golden touches to his scales. He is tank mated with a talking catfish.
None of our tankmates have been attacked, they have been chased a little (Mostly the shrimp and Lissa.) Lissa used to be in a tank with Emmeryn, but he kept following her around acting like: "Hey, that's mine... That's mine too... Get out...". (At least that's what it seemed like. XD Lol.)
We have live plants in our tanks. Java Ferns, Kyoto Japanese Water Plants another type of fern, and another leafy type of plant. (I don't know what it is exactly.)
We have bought our supplies and Bettas from Petco. We also got some supplies from another petshop which is closing down in our area.
It is lovely meet you all. This forum as well as the people seem incredibly nice, and I hope to have a good time here with my mother. (:D
As a concluding piece I'd like to wish you all a wonderful week and I hope all of our bettas and other creatures (Yours and ours.) live a wonderful and fun life! 8D
