Wow, it seems like I'm either sitting around doing nothing or super busy! I finally got some really good work up here today and was out for a good 9 hours. Anyways, I have some very exciting news
First of all, I did a tank change today and found some weird semi clear spider web type of stuff at the bottom of my AQ. I did my best to vacuum it out, I can only imagine its some kind of algae or something that is forming around the plants. But what I also noticed was a SUPER huge leaf that belongs to my red tiger lotus bulb!!!!!!!!
I know its hard to see in that picture but my tiger lotus' leaves have never been over half an inch in size before dying. This leaf is like 3" long!!!! I think I have a good chance of my tiger lotus actually blooming which is one of my AQ dreams lol.
Anyways the news gets even better, I went to the AQ shop on my lunch and picked up four new young betta crown tails!!!!!!!!!!! They are all very healthy looking active and very playful -
^This girl looks a lot like Clarissa. I'm still debating on a lot of names :3
^This girl is really pretty and looks like she will crown very nicely!
^This girl is a bet peculiar, she is a few different shades of grey and has quite a spiky dorsel fin, lol.
Okay I was planning on picking up three blue crown tails and I had already ended up with three that were pretty diverse (who wants all the same right? I was starting to realize this lol). But then I saw this girl starring right at me. I instantly melted and had to have her as well!! D:
The guy at the AQ shop must have thought I was a pretty big tard for squeeing at this girl but I couldn't help it lol. She doesn't have lipstick but I love the red she has on her crowns and she is just so pretty. The picture doesn't do her much justice =p
I have two more older female betta's that were supposed to come in the mail today as well but they haven't yet and I'm a bit worried =\ but other than that its been a great day lol.
