Thank you! I can't remember the name and my sister threw out the tag! I'll have to hunt down the name of it. :) Or perhaps someone here might know better.

The bottom is a java moss carpet, I think. :P

Just a random update: Choi Oppa has roommates in his ten gallon: a gold mystery snail (that he has completely IGNORED) and two ghost shrimp. :)

When we put the ghost shrimp in last night, he chased each one all of once, nipped once (because one of the shrimp was hiding out in his favorite corner of the tank) and... that was it. We gave him some food and he left the shrimp alone after that. The funny thing is, he didn't flare at any of them.

He DID discover, however, that he can see his reflection under the filter, so he spent about two minutes flaring at himself. Because he's a younger fish, he has to try especially hard to flare. He'll sort of half-flare, then strut around the tank sulking, before coming back to do a full flare. Unlike my past bettas, who could show off a full flare anytime they wanted, Choi has to hold his beard out to keep a full flare displayed. Otherwise, it's always a half flare.

Heehee so cute XD just tuned the lights on, so fish are somewhat bleary eyes. Once they wake up they'll realize they're flaring at their own refelction :P

Yeah, Choi's learned to wrap his tail around the heater cord in the corner, so that's where he sleeps at night. :)

It's possible, haha! :D


In other news, MY GHOST SHRIMP HAS BABIES!!!! She's been hiding the past few days in the moss, but now she's finally out. I got an up-close look at her today and SHE HAS EGGS!!

They're tiny as can be, but they're already wriggling!!

Unfortunately, I don't have another tank or microorganism to feed them with, or where to put the momma! Fortunately, the two ghost shrimp that we have are pair, so I expect more chances of babies in the future if this batch doesn't make it. :)

Welcome back! I remember reading a post you made a few months ago about 'bettas and stability' and reading through it. I never posted though, so you probably won't recognize me. Anyway, I hope you stay longer on the forums this time!
