ThatFishThough's Betta Journal

So much has changed since my last journal update, I thought I'd start anew. For those of you who don't know, I started a sorority back in January. It went pretty well, with 9 girls in a 20 Long. I started with silk plants, but gradually moved to live. Now I have 6 happy girls in that tank (along with 4 Panda Cories, 4 Neon Tetras, 2 Glo Fish, and a Netrite Snail.) It is divided in two, though, so there is also a 5.5 G space with the newest addition, and unnamed Blue Multicolor Super Delta guy. :3 He's still really shy, but then again, so is Akuma. Akuma is my Black Copper Devil Butterfly Halfmoon guy. He lives in his own 5.5G.

The sorority was recently tanke out with a hard wipe of Columnaris, which was the end of Rei & Eclipse's lives. Carlos & Angel were taken by lack of water change while I was on vacation, and Poptart & Honey to violence in the sorority. I lost 4 Panda Cories to stress, and a Neon to other disease. I lost the Ghost Shrimp & Cherries to.. Well, food.

The newest guy came home yesterday (8/17/16). He loves to flirt with the girls, dart though the Cacomba, and hunt the remaining RCS from his 5.5 side. I'm not actually sure if he's a multicolor, either, but you'll see in future pics that he has too much blue bleeding into his yellow fins to be called a MG.

Akuma came... what, three, four weeks ago? I'll have to check the exact date. He moved into the 5.5G after Carlos & Angel (split) died. I revamped his 5.5G so it was more... Fish-friendly. Filter, glass canopy, Finnex Stingray. I've only seen this guy flare once, and it was at the ladies while I was floating him to get his tank prepped.


I will do individual profiles of the girls later, I just woke up LOL.

Most likely. As long as it's just the $11, including shipping. :)

I didn't end up getting the plants, sorry fernielou. I do have a couple pics of one of my original two girls.

Melody is getting on 1.5 years now. She's a Turquoise Superdelta Plakat, with really wonky ventrals. It's almost like @lilnaugrim 's Angelfish, Trip (I think that was the one.) Anyway, one of her ventrals splits into three. I don't know if it was recently ripped, or if it's been that way the entire time. Anyway, she's mid-way in the sorority. Higher than her sister, Harmony, but lower than Candy, Hershey, & Luna.

1. As a Baby!
2. Released as an Adult! (Sorority Beginning)
3. Peek-a-Boo!

I'll get more later, I have better ones on my phone.

Update - The Tetras & GloFish are supposed to go back this Thursday, but I've come down with a 104* Temp, sore throat, and terrible headache. ;-; I tested Negative for Strep, and my mom thinks I have a type of "dry" flu.

Okay, I possibly Adenovirus, Ear Infection, & Tonsilitis. I'm super PO'd right now. I missed the first day of school. Then the doctor ordered 1 week of solid rest & a blood test. I don't usually talk about my fears, by I am deathly afraid of needles. I literally freaked and my temp went up to 107*. They eventually got me to hold still long enough to get the blood drawn. By then, I was crying so hard that my nose had goobered up my mask. There was a little girl at the bottom of the stairs and she looked at me like I'd been tortured. (Which I had! >.<)

I think this is all from swimming. The pool we're at is a public pool during the summer, but our school's swim team uses that pool because we don't have one. There was a girl on the swim team that was complaining of an earache & headache, and she had to sit out the next practice. .-. I'll be out for at least a week, ugh!

On to better news -- I've been approved a $350 grant from my parents to breed a pair of bettas ^.^ I was hoping to breed a pair of Thai bettas, but Akuma has a pretty dang good form for a petstore betta. If (And ONLY IF) I can find a female with smother fin edges, preferably a Copper Devil HM girl, I will breed him.

Adenovirus is a fancy way to say a cold
