Hi People.
today I made my own tank dividers using the wonderful link that Dragonfish sent me. ( http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/d...ividers-21866/ ) anyway, I made three of them this afternoon, and I only spent nine dollars total! plus I had leftover report binders. (enough to make three more dividers.) Here is a picture:

on the left are the ones I made myself, and on the right is a store-bought divider. the nice thing about making your own is that one, they are not as see-through as the store-bought ones, and two, you can make triple the amount for the same price! even though right now I have pretty much no use for dividers, I am scheming for when my animal-getting ban is lifted. until next time, ~Saphira :)

I wanted to get in the holiday spirit so I Photoshopped it to look like this:

after Christmas I'll change it back to the original.

forgot to mention in my previous post, I visited petco to pick up some goldfish food and decided to look at the Bettas. Grrrrrrrrrr! I saw this marble halfmoon male sitting on the bottom of his cup, poor guy. his fins were so clamped, he looked like a VT. (but I assure you, he was an HM. when I picked up his cup, he weakly flared at me, unfolding his tail enough for me to see his true tail type.) but alas, I still have this cursed ban. (oh well, I didn't really have any extra space for him anyway.) well, at least I might be able to get my brother into Bettas too. (he prefers chichlids & gouramis, but I caught him looking longingly at a Red CT.) he is not banned from getting more animals, but I know he wants to save his tank space for chichlids. oh well, someday.

Hello guys.
Oh, I'm such a sucker for bettas!
I went to my LFS again today and here are all of the ones I wished that I could take home:
VT boy with majorly nipped fins, they had him with the lemon tetras!
100_3747.jpg
Other VT boy with nipped fins, but this one was BLIND!! (put with angel fish)
100_3751.jpg
this was a VT boy that just didn't look good. I think he had fin rot or something..
100_3754.jpg
Beautiful blue VT boy, nothing seemed to be wrong, as he was with guppies. :)
100E3755.jpg
and last but not least, that pineapple VT I showed you a picture of last time I went to my LFS.
100_3753.jpg

I'd show you a new picture of that little wild-type girl, but she wouldn't come out for a good picture. (she's camera-shy) :)

GRRRRRRRR!!! I wish that I had not brought this cursed ban upon myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!

please do not blame my LFS for the conditions of those three bettas, those were the only ones that were actually in bad shape out of about 80 bettas. (plus, as you may know, I have a soft spot for sick/injured things, so of course I wanted those ones) the owner has a lot on his plate, and only one employee. he also has a LOT of fish to keep up with. those bettas with nipped fins were the only ones that were with unsuitable tank mates, and there were really no more tanks that he could put bettas in. (all of the rest had some sort of shark or chichlid)

On another subject, I shot a nice picture of little Merlin today: (sorry, it's a bit dark)
100_3773.jpg
I also got a nice one of peach, he was flaring at my camera :)
100_3627.jpg
and just to not leave her out, here's one of Winter I took a while ago, before I had Merlin:
100_3458.jpg

Until next time, ~Saphira

Hello and merry Christmas!
My brother is so awesome!! guess what he got me for christmas? Okay I'll tell you. he got me: a 10 gallon aquarium kit, an amazon sword plant that's already sending up new shoots, two other plants that I can't remember the names of (one of them's a fern) some driftwood, two baby pygmy cory catfish, ()and... THE LITTLE VT GIRL I'VE BEEN WANTING FOR SO LONG!!!!!!!!! he said he'd have got me the pineapple male too, but the owner had sold it after FIVE YEARS of the little guy living at the shop. wow. I love my brother! :) some of the plants even had snails on them, and I've really wanted some snails for a while. the little girl is currently living in a kritter keeper for quarantine, as she has a bit of fin rot. (I knew that already, I wanted her anyway) Peach has some too, in fact. he's also in a kritter keeper. I moved merlin to a new tank of three gallons where I keep all of my plants. he won't quit flaring at his reflection, any tips on making sure he doesn't wear himself out? (he's such a little weirdo)

anyway, merry Christmas to y'all!
~Saphira
P.S. I'd post pics, but I went home with my grandma to see a nutcracker ballet, so I didn't have time.
