Cool fish.

Le sigh! This guy caught my eye as I was just getting a silly silk plant. Now I can't stop thinking of him. To go back and get him or not?

That was the same instinct that made me get my little Aki. Gotta save at least one of these babies from a possibly horrible life, then death. :(

I need to update you guys on Aki. Been an interesting few weeks. I do believe he had a swim bladder problem last week, as he was being very lethargic, and fitting all the signs of such. After about 2 days he was back to normal.

Now the little guy just likes to pace against the front of the tank when I have the lights on, probably seeing his reflection or something... Otherwise he is fine,but is appetite has changed a bit; he isn't as crazy about bloodworm as he was before he got sick.

Otherwise he is perfectly fine and more energetic than ever. Also, his colors are really starting to show, and his fins are clearly getting bigger. I will have to get some pictures and video the next few days.

Okay so this is a little off topic but what are the ovaries behind the stomach on a baby female supposed to look like? Like can someone post a picture with them circled or something along those lines?

Here's a picture of lilnaugrim's female, Pineapple. She circled the ovaries.

The ovaries are usually a visible yellow through the lighter bettas. They will be more noticeable on darker bettas whenever you are able to identify what they look like. Just the general shape and coloration of the body can be a giveaway. The easiest way to tell with darker bettas is to have them in a cup and hold them up against a light (be sure not to stress them out too much). If you see a dark or light patch that is like a triangle behind the stomach, then those are the ovaries. Be careful not to confuse it with the swim bladder, which is more thin, ovalish, and stretches farther back towards the tail.

Once again, Pineapple here is a great example of what the ovaries and swim bladder look like and where they're positioned.
