They kep growing and you can split them to smaller bits. In the wild where they grow in ball form they grow a bump that eventualy breaks off.

So today I finally moved Kalec and Seiya to the 10g. No stress lines, so I did it right! Unfortunately they've both found shiny spots where they keep doing their flaring and tough-guy dance. I thought a painted canvas on the back of the tank would be fine, but from where I can see Seiya flaring, I can tell it's still like a mirror. Time to look at the backgrounds at work.

Whelp, did the water changes for Demi and Phy last night. Phy's also back on aq salt since he won't stop biting his tail-fin -_-; Thinking of getting one of those floating mirrors for him...

Demi was cute yesterday when I was feeding her though! She swam up on the opposite side of a leaf I normally feed her from, and she jumped over it to get to the food instead of swmming around. Was so awsm! She's also the only one out of all my betta that jumps from time to time. She's so amazing, and so strong for the abuse she's been through! And her dorsal fin's growing out! Woohoo!

Kalec and Seiya are doing okay. Was worried Seiya had hole in the head, but turns out those pock-marks are normal in dragonscale betta. So Seiya's a marble dragonscale halfmoon =D

Only leave the floating mirrors in for a bit.

Oh I know, wasn't planning on leaving them there. =)

So~ today I got a wonderful surprise!!



I'm so proud of him and so glad he approves of his hammock xD

Demi's dorsal is definitely growing back, and she's so darn active! And Phy's tearing at his tail again. -_-; But the edges are clean and he's more active now that I removed that filter I added. Just gotta keep up with water changes I guess.

And Kalec's scales on his back look like they'll be okay. I'm not sure what happened, but it looked like something caught on him somewhere between moving him from his qt tank to the 10g. not sure if it was the cup, or something else, or even just aloe from the stress coat that was in his cup stuck to his back. But I can see his iridescence and new scales right under this white filmy whatever, so he should be just fine.

Hee~ ^^ I'm just glowing. So proud of all my darlings! And already trying to devise how to get a fifth at the end of the month ^^;

You can use a regular mirror.

None really, I just like the look of them and getting pics would be easier instead of using a bulky mirror.
