I think so! She's been at petsmart for almost a week and a half and i couldn't stand to leave her haha. Hmm maybe it's not SBD...I think I'll wait to do any treatment and let her get settled and then decide. Right now she's following one of th cories and is fascinated but them haha. She's got a blue-ish rim around her black eyes, it's so cool!! (:

They are dwarf Red tail black bodied guppies. They dont eat there fry. Netting the wild type is impossible they jump out of the net.

Lol they sound pretty though. Did you breed them yourself?

Here's my new little girl, Aria. But her fins seem much too long for a normal female VT and yet she has an eggspot...young male maybe?

So the tank cleaning is almost done to my 3 gallon...I was stupid and bought "clean up with bleach" to disinfect it (after velvet parasite). That's basically fancy title for soap that smells like bleach...so now it is soaking in vinegar and hot water. I'm gonna do lots more rinses tonight and then let everything dry out. And then when I get it all set up, I'll test it on a feeder minnow or something. (I'm not gonna plop one of my bettas in there, mean as it sounds. I'd rather pay 13 cents for a test fish). Hoping everything goes according to plan!
