It's nice seeing everyone's girls!
Finally got at least...a picture of all of mine. If there's one thing my bettas have in common it seems to be an abhorrence of anything that can take a picture. Camera = SWIM AWAY FAST! And the good camera battery ran out and I couldn't find the recharger, so there's the additional handicap of taking pictures with phone.
So off we go! First, the three who are already in the tank!
Christmas, a greenish/tealish and red crowntail
Shine, a golden yellow veiltail, who also seems to be the leader of the pack
Snowflake, a mostly white crowntail who will no doubt marble up on me
She's the smallest of the three in the tank.
My two girls who are in the wings:
Minnow (Permanent name once she grows up a little more) was a transparent silvery grey slip of a thing with signs of SBD when I brought her home. She's sharing a small tank with my lonely ADF while she grows a little. the SBD signs cleared up in a couple of days, and she's gaining color and losing the stripes. I'm guessing based on her size and color that she was barely older than those Baby Bettas.
And finally, Shimmer, whose first stint in the tank did not end well. She seems to be recovering nicely and if she continues to do well, she can go back in. She's a tough gal - I wasn't sure she was going to make it at first. FWIW, she got sick, she wasn't hurt by the other girls. She's a double ray CT.
And they have friends. You probably saw the tetras in some of the other pictures. There are 7 neons and 4 glowlines, who all seem to flock more or less together.
The cleanup crew is currently:
2 Threeline Corydoras
And 2 Golden Dojo Loaches, who would not cooperate by being in the same area to be photographed together. Very wiggly too.
And last but not least, the tank itself. I have it set on timers to do daylights for 8 hours for the plants, and the rest of the time it's on the "nightlights".
And last but not least, I forgot to show you my other catfish!
