The filter in the fluval chi drives me insane. It's just so different, I'm so tired of it. I'll just try the pantyhouse, and hopefully when she gets bigger, I can move her into the sorority and make room for a lucky new betta !

Day 4 photos

So just a quick photo, her colour really coming in!

It's crazy how she went from this to this in just 4 days.



Thinking she may be a CT from the ridges in her fins, as Lilnaugrim suspected :p

Teasing the beauties and a surprise guest

And they thought I was gonna feed them, again. Aww







And I Actually love this photo. It focused on the ornament, not the bettas, but it's still really pretty in my opinion!



And the for the surprise visit!

Neona, my kitty, on my sister's bed, sleeping on a pile of laundry. Could barely find her, and almost flopped on top of her!



Can you find her? :p

Day 5 update!

WOW. This is gonna be an interesting entry!

So I ran to Petland after work, just to pick up some plants.
Spent about $70 there for baby betta food, driftwood, and plants.

I bought Hygrophilia, Red Flame Sword, Pennywort, and Anubias. Love them all! I didn't QT them.. I know :'c
But the PetLand I go to, takes really good care of their fish, never seen a dead betta, and their plants are really healthy, so hopefully nothing bad will occur.





So first, the baby fry food.
This Wardley Small Fry is AMAZING.
While I was redecorating baby betta's tank, I put her in a small cup, and put 1 drop of it. Wow. She just instantly became interested, gobbling it up. I highly recommend it! $10 per tiny bottle, but worth it.



First, the Fluval Spec.
Added moneywort, java fern, Red Flame Sword, and Anubias. My tank is officially a fully planted tank! Yay.
The Red Flame Sword is HUGE btw.




Fluval Spec:

After:



And finally the Fluval Chi. Replaced everything! In these pics, the water is kinda murky, and crap floating around, so I'm just waiting for it to settle down

Before:



After:

Couldn't sleep so gonna post future plans here so I don't forget!
Plants to buy:
Anubias
Hygrophilia
Amazon sword
Pennywort
Hornwort
Java fern
Java moss
frogbit
Duckweed
microsword
hairgrass
baby tears

I wanna cover everything with plants!

I know this sounds terrible but I can't wait for baby Betta to grow up, so I can kick her out of the chi and into the sorority. Want to buy a really beautiful rosetail for the chi :s

Also baby Betta didn't seem the least bit interested in the tank I designed for her :( she opted to hide among the hygrophilia instead. Hopefully she'll feel more comfy soon.

Good night all!

Meh, I've never QT'd plants, they just go straight in and I've never had a problem! An occasionally snail or two but my Betta's eat them lol.

Lookin' real good!!! You're betta's are so lucky to have you!!! I'm sure BB will be very happy once she realizes all the plants she has to hide in and swim around! Glad she ate!! What are the first three ingredients on the Wardley?

Yay!! I felt so bad just sticking them in lol.

And thanks! I just really wanna try covering the whole bottom with grass.

Ingredients are:
water, egg product, yeast extract, citric acid, and a bunch of chemicals, if you wanna know those, I'll share!

water is the first ingredient?!?! o.O that's....really weird...

egg product is...okay and yeast extract is no good. Yeast is in the Grains category of bad stuff. So yeah you said you were going to get some NLS, that will be much better for her ^_^
