Hey everyone! I received my shipment of bettas from Darkmoon17 yesterday and everyone arrived safely. They were a bit pale at first but colored up really quickly. Everyone ate right away, so I think they took the shipping pretty well.
The whole tank:
In case you're wondering about the giant hole in the middle where a filter should be...
, my husband woke up me up at about 6am this morning. "Baby, we have a problem!" He saw one of the female bettas swim into the filter. "@#*%" I said, and rushed to the rescue. Turns out there were now a total of 2 bettas just chillin' inside of our filter. Filter gets turned off. I'm now in the process of silicone-ing plastic mesh over the front.
Everyone is fine though.
Decorations are composed of Lego: Alien Invaders
Some silk plants, 2x c. wendtii, & a whole mess of anacharis.
A few close-ups:
This gal in front is one of the most outgoing of them all. She actually likes to pose for the camera, and we have a few of her.
This red dragon gal likes to give me the stink eye.
Caught after feeding! Brine shrimp & mosquito larvae are going over well.
When I introduced the black girl on the left to the sorority, she swam right to the middle, looked straight ahead, and had a *massive* bowel movement. Stress, probably, but I like to think it represented her feelings about being shipped, lol.
We couldn't get pictures of everyone. More will come.
