I have been so terrible at updating this!

Just wanted to pop in before work and say that everyone is doing great, Hotaru is growing fast, and I'll post new pic later today!

Day 10 Already!

Time just seems to be flying with this little one!

Does anyone else notice that their babies seem to be clamped up a lot, or is it possibly because of how young this one is? He has SO much energy, constantly moving, begging for food, exploring, but I rarely see his ventrals, and his caudal is pulled to a point most of the time...

I'm not worried, just curious...

Pictures!
(Some of these are from yesterday.)

Day 12

Hotaru is starting to develop an iridescent shimmer that looks really awesome. And he's getting so fast! It's getting really hard to take pictures!

Day 28! 4 weeks!

Wow! It's been over two weeks since I posted here!
Hotaru is doing great, growing, eating, jumping at my fingers!

Me, on the other hand...
My phone died 400 miles from home, had to get a new one.
Been running around like crazy.
Got bit by a cat/raccoon yesterday (didn't get a good enough look to tell which one.)
Started my series of rabies vaccines. OW!

Anyways, Hotaru...
For some reason, he still swims around with his fins clamped. I can't see anything wrong with him, other than the fins. Lots of energy, spunk, and a good appetite.

In the last picture, you can see a single black scale on his side. Maybe he's marbling?

Snoeflayke I really love the silk plants that you have in your tank, they are lovely and colourful!!!! I'm a sucker for colours probably one of the reasons that I love bettas so much. Hotaru is such a cute little guy!

Thanks! They're all Petco brand! (Which are available on Amazon, too!) I love the Petco ones because they have no metal in them. I have them in 3 out of 4 tanks, and the 4th is going to be an NPT.

Someone was so hungry that he unclamped his fins today when he was eating!
