we just had one of our girls drop a litter, babies all over the place, and of course, the camera's dead. lol

Ours aren't picky eaters at all, we just offer tons of variety. They like Omega One betta flakes, egg yolk and earthworm flakes (from a friend), tropical flakes, bloodworms, spirulina, Nori, "sea lettuce", and Mike's arm when he does maintenance on that tank.

Ooh, will be a hard fight between me and my boys for egg yolks, hah, but I will definitely keep this in mind. Fully cooked or about 80-90%?

Today I got little cobra to eat a combo of crushed nls pellets and omega one betta buffet pellets. It made me happy to see his little belly round from something other than shrimp. My bettas have been quite happy with me having a baby guppy since its lead to them getting a couple shrimp at dinner time. Sesshomaru has actually started to attack my finger everytime I put it in the water because he thinks I have shrimp stuck to me haha

I think fully cooked, these are flakes, I'm not sure if my friend makes them herself or not. But it IS suggested food for fry. You hard boil the egg and pulverize it somehow.

Here we go. A link to the entire dropbox folder with images of Honey and the boys :D

Moon is a blue, but he's always just stressed enough that he appears black :( So sad... he's really such a pretty blue color. At night, when it's dimmer/darker he seems to relax a bit more for some reason. I don't quite get this one. And Pink has this reeeallly pretty violet color that comes up on his sides and tail when he de-stresses, but he's hounded enough that he stays pink... Boys! Leave the poor guy be! I don't care if I'm part of GGLA or not >: | I will find you some ladies (eventually).

:D :D :D I love seeing the pics!!! I can't wait until Little Cobra grows up and I can have a school of guppies of my own. I love how colorful they are! Their faces aren't as cute as a Betta's face though....
What were those snakey things zooming around the tank?!

Chevko, seeing your setup, more vertical plants will help your harassed boys out. Guppies like a ton of plants... like ridiculous amounts. We cheated by buying them fake plants, but it really made a difference!

(^there's 4-5 real plants in there, if you don't count the duckweed)
