Smile Barely 2 months in the hobby (:

Yeah so i saw this one member doing something like this and so am i! I started fish keeping in the end of November last year and here I am with 3 tanks now. Gonna be that crazy fish keeper on the West Island someday so here we go :P

The second tank i got is my smallest one, a 5 gallon with my Jazzy in it, my male crowntail betta. He was living in my 21 gallon before but i had to move him out for 2 reasons; 1. I added females to the tank and 2. His tail got nipped or ripped i don't really know. I'm planning on adding shrimps later on when the tank is fully established. Pictures:

Here he is, the inhabitant of the tank. If you watch closely, you can see the back of its tail there's a chunk missing. Anyone knows how much time can this take to grow back?

Then are pictures of the tank, it has everything except a light, that necessary or are lights only for live plants and to make the fish more colourful?

Then, i have a 10 gallon which i got on kijiji from a woman who sold her tank along with all her equipements she had for only 50$. Good deal, reason she sold it? Her fish kept dying... I had a choice for how to stock this tank. I wanted to either move my female bettas into it or take a fancy goldfish from my friend who was giving him away because he couldn't take proper care of it. I had a thread about this and i finally decided to take the goldfish because he was still small and i could upgrade as he grows and then move my small sorority. Pictures:

Went to walmart to buy him some stuff today.

Finally, my last tank is a 21 gallon. It was the first one i got. It currently have 2 red comet plattys and 3 female bettas. They are crowntail from what i've been told. One of my fish died in this tank. A red comet platty due to ammonia poisoning. How sad! I'm still waiting for this tank to cycle but it's taking forever! It has 2 live plants with a bunch of fake silk plants. Pictures:

Love the tanks!! :)

As for the bettas tail growing back, could take a few weeks to a month depending on the waters condition and if he is bored enough to bite it. You should see new growth within a week as long as the water is clean- it will come in clear at first.

Thanks :) I never knew that he could get bored and bit his own tail, maybe that's what he did, because i never found him fighting in his old tank! n.n

And do you know how exactly i will know when my females are adults?
