Sorry. lol It's in my blood. xD

Have you thought of entering Marine in the VT contest? He'll win for sure!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Hahah nah, you're already in it, too much competition

If I ever plan to enter him in the competition, I'll wait until his fins are healed up.
His pecs and dorsal are kinda tattered and ratty looking atm, but I can already see improvement :)

But Breme's definitely gonna be some tough competition xD

Edit: Going out to buy an adapter, so hopefully I can finally get his pictures up! >:/

Awe, thanks for the compliment. I'll tell Breme right now on how beautiful people think of him! lmao

Once you get an adapter, get some pictures of Marine! He's literally the type of fish I want to breed for.

LOL beautiful people. pfft.

I went out to WalMart today and FINALLY got the adapter thingy. FINALLY! So happy! Now I can upload all these photos just waiting!

First I'll start off with my cat, Neona.
She's hilarious lol.

She was grooming herself at first, but when I looked back 10 minutes later, she was just sitting there. It was so funny I had to take pictures.



Lol at her face "You caught me!"



So cute. Tryin' to be human pft

Marine Photo Spam

All righty, get ready for a crap load of Marine photos! xD

These are all day 1 pictures, taken when I first got him. If he ever changes (marbles) I'll compare them!

My favourite tail photo of his:



Then this one, which shows off his anal fin colouring quite nicely:



really catches the colour:



Flaring, full body pic:



These show off the eyes:





Finally, I thought this one looked cool, even though it didn't focus. His tail looks kinda like a feather.

I meant "I should tell Breme on how beautiful; people think of him!" Not 'beautiful people'. Is it true? jkjk hahaha

She does look like she's grooming, is that even comfy? 0-0 There's this cat that visits me that looks just like her.. Except it's a boy and he doesn't have white chest fur.

EDIT: Marine!! Are you going to breed him? He's a VT and all but...

ADF starring Marine

Thought this was adorable. The ADF was just resting on the pennywort, waiting for an opportunity to go up for some air. So cute!





Then he stayed like that for a good 5 minutes:



So far, Marine and the ADFs have had no conflict with each other, Marine only flaring at them. But if I see any mysterious tears in his fins, or him pecking at them, I'll remove them from the tank right away.

OOH! LOL. Hahah one day I'll be beautiful! Maybe as soon as I get these braces off (9 weeks left! woo!) But yeah, no lol.

Mhm, she was grooming then just sat there. Doesn't look comfy at all but cats are weird lmao.

Cat that visits you? Is it a stray and you feed it from time to time? Neona's pretty unique lol, she has a short stub for a tail, which took a while getting used to, but now I love it.

Yeah, he's really pretty, and I think I have everything that would be needed for breeding, but I really feel like I'd fail lol. Also, idk about his background, genetics, and stuff. And I wouldn't know what to do with all the baby bettas! XD

I have braces, too! I'm that nerd with the glasses and the braces. lol jk

Yes, he visits me. No, he's not a stray. He belongs to my neighbors; but I think they abandoned him. He has these open wounds; he's not bleeding but it's like an open scab. It doesn't look treated or anything.. And a stub? Nice!

I wish you did, does he have a good spread? Really hard to get in a VT but I've seen some!

I don't think I've seen him fully flare yet. ;o

The pictures above kinda look half-hearted, since his tail droops down and the VT i had flared with his tail straight out. So once he gets comfortable, I'll stick a mirror up and see how it goes.

Hahah brace buddies yes. When do you get yours off?

Ah1#135!$~@$ Does he trust you? Maybe try treating his open wounds? I think all you have to do is wash it out with water and antibacterial soap. Idk lol, my cats have never been hurt (huh).

Also, I don't know if he's worth breeding, because he is a VT, which is becoming quiet unpopular, and can't really change that.

I wish I could just stick his colouration and paste it on a HM or DT
