Mar's Betta Journal

Welcome to my journal :)

This journal will mostly be about my bettas, with the occasional guest appearances of my other pets, Neona (cat) and Cara (dog).

It's mostly just a place to track my bettas' progress and growth and to record my thoughts.

So far, the bettas I currently own are:

Sorority:
Themis
Theia
Artemis
Venus

(Want pictures? Go to the third post here)

By themselves:
Athena

Males: (so far only 1)
New Betta - no name yet
Update: New Betta's name is Marine

RIP:
Dusk, always my favourite
Perseus, fought so hard
BB(Baby Betta) Your life was just beginning
(Want BB's story? Check out her journal here)

Lol, I'm just waiting for her anal fin to heal, and as soon as that's happened, I'll slowly reintroduce her! I really want her back in too, she would make a pretty addition. Especially since she's a DT, which is becoming my favourite type lol.

Do you remember that post we had about how VTs could be really beautiful if they were interesting colours? (what thread was that in btw? lol)
I think I managed to find one! Marine's a VT and there was just something about him that caught my eye. I usually really dislike VTs and try to avoid them, because of how plain I found them to be. So me buying a VT definitely means something lol!

He's currently acclimating in the Fluval Chi, and I'll see if I can get any pics up for tomorrow!

You're right, Gambit is quite a beautiful betta! I actually really like the split in his anal fin lol, makes him unique.

Thank you! It was a toss up between him and an orange VT with cellophane edging and a darker orange head and oh man, it was a hard decision! But Gambit won because he was in more rough shape, the orange VT was more swim bladder issues as well as malnutrition.

As cute as the split is, it was way too close to his body and it would have caused a horrible infection had it kept continuing to his body. So no, I wasn't very happy with the split lol.

Lol oh God.
Well, it's good the split didn't cause a bad infection.

Ikr, I keep finding myself more and more drawn towards the orange VTs. I just really have something for them!

Marine's finally in the tank, and exploring. He hasn't flared at his tankmates (ADF) but if they happen to become a problem, I'll take them out, and put them back into their home.

yep, subbed to that thread. another silentstalker moment LOL.

Yeah exactly! So that's why i took him home to fix him up ^_^

Oh, MoonShadow has this beautiful reddish orange VT with cellophane edging and blue irid in the middle of the ray's, he's called Tang and hot damn, if he were up for adoption, he'd be mine! lol

I'm glad VT's are getting more color to them, people finally starting to breed them well again! They can actually be colorful if people get their act together and breed them correctly! What I really want is a True MG VT boy, mhmm! He'd be mine in a heart beat! He won't replace Rembrandt (in my avvie) but, that would be my favorite fish in the world!

lol stalker XD

I'll have to check out MoonShadow's VT
Marine kinda just opened up my eyes lol and I'm more interested in VTs now.

K, so I have no clue what MG stands for, I'm sure I know it lol, but it's just now coming up. So far I got Marbled Grizzle, wow.
