I know I'm commented one after the other but these pictures were from Saturday, the second day after I got them. They are both in a 3 gallon which is split with plastic mesh, I made sure they couldn't get through the holes first.
Steve is still much more active than Tony, I wasn't sure if Tony was going to make it through the night with the swim bladder issue but he seemed to have been doing better than Friday. Steve also colored up some more to be a little more blueish than his original dull color but I know that was just stress.
Steve loves to pick around in the gravel and poke at his fake plant, he also likes to taunt Tony through the plastic mesh which I'll get a picture at. He even reached his lips through the mesh to latch onto Tony's tail, Tony slapped him with his tail and swam off, it was rather amusing to see that little mouth opened so wide lol I'll be keeping an eye on him though to make sure nothing actually happens to his fins.
The filter is turned off and I'm doing a 30% change on the tank which is only filled about 2.5 gallons so Tony doesn't have to go too far up. Doing changes about every 3 days and feeding them twice daily with the same stuff I feed my platy fry. It's a mash-up of all the foods I have including Betta flakes, NLS pellets, Omega One Pellets and about three or four freeze dried bloodworms mashed up as well. They only eat a tiny pinch and I take out whatever they don't eat.
So here's some more pictures!
I really wish that Steve would be a Super Delta or even just a regular Delta but I think he's just going to be a normal Veiltail, I hope at least he grows up with good finnage.
Here's Tony kind of just floating, you can see Steve peeking through the mesh just underneath him, the cheeky baby! lol
And peeking around the corner now, he's got lipstick! I hope he keeps that at least! Tony's just like "wut?"
There is a small possibility Tony might be a girl? Just looking at the anal fin it looked too much pointed, but he's almost got the body of a girl and a little tummy that is filling in. And the Ventrals don't seem quite as long as Steve's but I guess time will tell :)
I'll try to update tomorrow when I go back to my dads. I hope I can keep this thread going, I'm pretty terrible at updates so if it happens I don't update in a while, just poke me and I'll get pictures up lol. Thanks all.
