It was sunny out for a bit

Really craved a popsicle! But my family apparently does not
believe in junk food, or sugar at all.

(Lol just discovered these cute emoticons, so forgive the excess :p }

Day 61

Can't believe it, a whole two months as of yesterday!!!!!!!!!

So they've colored up impeccably well and once this video uploads you'll see why I can't take decent pictures of them!!!

So looking back at the previous Day __ entry, you can see that Tony's rays are splitting again at the ends to make 4 rays!!!! I hope he does turn out to be a beautiful CT! I haven't had a CT since I started, poor Gallifrey, he'd be disappointed in me!

So now they've been eating crushed NLS flakes enhanced with garlic and they seem to absolutely love them! So I'm going to stick with that for a while since they're both growing fantastically well!

Here, have some photos! As I said, none of them came out good because they don't sit still! They see me and go effing crazy!

Shows Tony's colors pretty well.


He was hunching his back on purpose, he's not normally like that!


STEEBE! Look at how fantastic his tail is getting!


Can't take photos of him!


Even though it's super blurry, I'm totally convinced he's going to be a CT by this picture!


Camera, y u no take good pictures?!?!


Ha Ha! Win! sorta, it's almost clear!

Thanks Mar! They aren't even half done with their growing yet! I'm excited to watch them grow up through their lives and go "I grew them! It was all me and some help from bettafish.com" lol

Day 63

Okay! More Pics!

Tony was sleeping so I caught him on camera sorta XD I had to shine a light on him so it looks weird, but he was stuffed in all his Java Moss, so cute!




Steve


The boys;


Tony actually looks a bit purpley because he's blue bodied, red fins and he's actually got black or he's getting see through at the edges or maybe he's actually becoming a CT! Soryr if I don't make sense, trying to watch TV and write at the same time haha, doesn't work well XD


Cute little flare!!


TAIL! Maybe a Combtail?






Boys:












Look at that finnage!!!


I'll be back with more pictures from today when I actually used a good light XD

Day 75

Holy mackerel! How time flies!!!

So! Lots to talk about, sort of lol

Last week I ended up getting two 'Japonica' shrimp for the babies since I had stuffed a bunch of Java moss in there which I intend on actually using for something at some point lol but for now, it's just floating in their 5.5 ^_^ so I acclimated the two Amano's and released after a while, the one on Steve's side freaked out like you wouldn't believe while the one on Tony's side happily went straight for the Java moss and instantly started to clean up any debris/leftover flakes/algae which I was happy about! I also found a tiny Ramshorn snail that came with it so I acclimated him too and threw him on Tony's side!

Here's the one from Steve's side:

Unfortunately....he's dead now I have no idea where he went since the tank is completely covered so I can only assume that either Steve harrassed him to death and he's in the filter now or he jumped the fence and the other shrimp ate him or something but I really don't know! There's no shell or nothing but I'm really not too worried, the one on Tony's side is still alive and well.

Tony's shrimp:


The Ramshorn:


The Ramshorn and the Shrimp:


And the Ramshorn died too >.< I found him dead or rather, completely missing from it's shell yesterday so I assume Tony ate him, the little bugger >.> So I can't have snails either, yay..../sarcasm.

So anyway, I got new lights for the 5.5!! Woohoo! Better pictures now, yay!!! I got a 10W CFL with 6,500K yay plants will grow better too!!

So here's the tank with the upgrade, be jealous of my obnoxious amount of java moss hahaha


So here's a dump of Steve, look at his beautiful fins!!




Cute little ventral's and pectorals!




Pretty blue


He's really such a cutie ^_^




Look at that iridescence shine!


Tony wasn't havin' any of his bull either XD






I'm pretty sure that Tony was PMS'ing yesterday because he would not flare and he did not want to see Steve whatsoever, he just seemed very grumpy all around and so I couldn't get many good pictures of him :-/

This one shows off his colors best:


I thought this picture was just the cutest ever! He looks like a mini Heat Miser here XD


Okay so he's not CT but he's not VT either...his ray's branch four times so far so I really have no idea, I guess then, he'd just be a DeT unless he ends up being a Combtail!




And that's all I have for you today folks! Enjoy the day!
