Yeah that's normal Phantom, that's what happens when you change their cup waters only once a week :-/

I did see that someone on another site had mentioned that all the betta cups develop high ammonia after a day or two (they work at a petstore or Petco I'm not sure), but it's sad to know they do.

Chai was actually one of the more sickly ones. I wasn't going to get him because of how sick he looked, but he showed the most personality despite his clamped fins.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

He indeed is, well minus for his size. He's still small compared to my roomate's veiltail :/

I have heard they reach maturity at 9 months, which means he has about 2 months to go ^^

Haven't updated in ages! :D
Anyways it has been 8 months with Baby c:



Oddball


Saphira


Daiquiri


Unfortunately, we lost Lucky on her one year anniversary of being with me.
Daiquiri also seems to be super stunted and has a arch in her back similar to Oddball's. So chances are that she'll be like him, minus the lack of vents.
However, there is still not an eggspot! :)

Having an arched back has nothing to do with being stunted, just bad breeding is all.

Oddball looks great though! Envy's such a big boy now!! So exciting!

And Daiquiri is a boy, from what I can see, there are no ovaries. Egg spots are not reliable as we mostly know, Betta's are just out to confuse us as this journal supplies proof for! haha. They all look great though, hopefully Saphira grows his tail back and ventrals? Or are they just missing from birth perhaps?

I'm hoping that Daiquiri is a boy as well xD Makes ti so much easier in case I need to have fish share tanks.

Saphira, I forgot to introduce him to everyone xD

He's from the breeder as Oddball, and he decided to bite his tail off. However, his vents were like that C:

I like to call him Nub-Nubs for fun xD

Ah gotcha, so he most likely lost them when he was young. He's a special fish for sure!

Oh and females and males can share a divided tank, she'll just get a little eggy if she wants to breed and he will just make bubble nests day and nice haha. But they can all share a divided tank no problem ^_^
