Well Tony's got me thoroughly confused by it's gender and tail type lol. Today I'm finding more rays sticking out of the tail but....yeah I still don't know! And today the anal fin looks really pointed, looks like the ventral fins have grown in but I can't see through to see if it's got ovaries ><
So everything else seems to be going well other than Tony being picky about his food (just going to refer to it as him since at this point I don't care lol). I did a 75% water change today to prepare for me not being here till Wednesday afternoon. The whisper 3i is running to keep the water circulated at least and the tank has been at a steady 80, woot woot!
The sprig of water sprite that I've got on Steve's side is dying but it's putting off plantlets so I want it to grow enough and then get rid of the sprig when it completely dies off.
I added about a 1/8th teaspoon of epsom salt yesterday to see if it would relieve Tony a bit and good news! I haven't seen him float all day today!! I didn't add in any more epsom salt so presumably I took the majority of it out with the water change today. He's still doing great though and it's been about 6 hours since that!
So picture time!
Steve decided he wanted to stripe all day long...
Excuse the mess of flakes, that was Tony being picky, that was all cleaned up with the water change.
Striping but he's got body growth!
Looks like Tony's taking on more of a 'male' body figure though!
I don't see any ovaries....you can sort of see the spikes on his caudal as well
Steve's tail!!! Oh and that's a bubble in front of him.
Holding a ventral up
So far Steve's kept his "lipstick" I hope he never looses it!!
Eh, camera was being lame..
I feel like, when I look at other people's Betta Baby logs, they've grown so much by a month's time!! Why aren't my baby's growing? Well...they are growing...I just got them really small and I slacked on water changes last week....and then there was the feeding issue when I first started...I guess there's a lot of factors, huh.
