And now for some Boys!
Here's Jarvis's full tank shot:
And the 10 gallon split 3 times, from left to right; Ditto, Aero and Mercury although Ditto was in QT at that time for fin rot which he's managed to get away from so he's back now recuperating his fins since I got a new boy!
I know it doesn't look like much but I finally got a piece of driftwood in there so this picture isn't up to day, but with the tannins and the piece it will soften the water making my plants grow much better after!
And it seemed the Full Super Moon effected my boys as well! They immediately began bubble nest building, even the ones who normally don't do one!
And Rembrandt's! Jarvis made one too but I didn't get a picture of it.
And Aero's nest! His first one! Small, but cute and there
And Aero being cute, so I think he's going to marble to a proper Green Betta! He's starting to get this green stripe down his right side which you can kind of see here but it was much more prominent today! I thought it might have been algae at first but it's a perfectly straight line so I cannot think that it'd been anything other than him changing colors. Also in his tail the middle of it is becoming a little more clear and the edges are becoming very solid like a clean butterfly! Hopefully he does marble, I think it would be really neat to track his progress!
Also his anal fin is becoming green as well and it's not laying on top of the fin, it's the literal pigmentation of his fin. He's also filling in his mask, losing the "arrows" he'd been partly named after haha.
And for this next image you're probably going to be like "WTF??" So I have to give a little back story.
Okay so Jarvis, he's my DT Rosetail boy who has beautiful colors but unfortunately he's got some bowel movement issues. So I've usually kept him in a therapeutic dosage of Epsom salt to help his bowels move but it never really seemed to help. So I aborted it and when I did my water change, it was just fresh clean water. So in the two months that I've had him, he's pooped all of twice, so you think this is really weird! Well he actually excretes a lot of his waste out through his gills so I think he's just had a problem with literally not being able to push the poop out his "bum" so I decided Sunday that I should give him more than just the 2-3 pellets of NLS that I normally give and I dared to give him 5. WELL LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!! HE POOPED!!!!!!!!!!!! It's HUGE too! Oh my gosh, i can't tell you how excited I was over this!!!! So here, Have a lovely poop picture haha!
And apparently I have a soft spot for Betta's with this type of coloring; close to wild type but with more red on their fins. This boy was at Petsense, he'd been there for about 3-4 weeks so I had to take him home. In that time he lost that middle section to his anal and has really bad fin rot at the edges of his tail so he's currently in some salty water.
Funny story, I was acclimating him to the warmth (because they had the a/c on and the Betta's aren't heated of course so their cups were at a lovely 58 degree's) and of course to the salt and I went to pour more water in and he jumped out into the tank >.< so I was like "Fine, you did that to yourself, you can stay there!" and he was perfectly fine so I'm not going to worry about him too much
But here he is!
And for reference here is my 33 way back in February! There was practically nothing in it! lol
