Well my 8Gal community tank is doing well, the water has stayed clear and Perry (my Betta) seems very happy, he follows people around the tank and has his favourtie hang-outs in the tank. The tetras are getting along with him too. And his colour has improved, he's now a violet/lilac purple and gettileng light blue tips on his fins...
anyway, another forum i am a member of had a post from a lady who has to move suddenly overseas. She had 4 bettas that needed homes and found for 2, but still had 2 more... so I adopted one, he is a little over a year old and a blue/black colour. I've got him temporarily in a large critter keeper tank with a live plant (since he was in an unfiltered unheated large bowl in a 24'c apartment) until I can get him a better setup.
His name is Lapis and compared to Perry he is mr Flare Extraordinaire lol... almost constantly looking for attention lol. Today, after 4 days, I found a big bubble nest (at least I think that is what it was) He looks mad at me though coz I changed the water so had to ruin it :(
