I've been reading all the posts on this and its absolutely incredible how much they've grown and changed. You've got two very handsome boys! Their colors are fantastic too. My girl Gylfie has the same colors, but a bit lighter, though she still seems to be getting brighter every day. But Tony and Steve are gorgeous~

It was such a pleasure to read through your journal. :) They are are growing up so well! It's so fun to see all the changes documented through the months, the growth/color changes, in the pictures. They're turning out to be very handsome little fishies!

Thank you!! I'm glad you enjoyed our little adventure, it's far from over yet but we're well on our way at least ^_^

Steve's body is still at the .8-.9 inch mark not including tail where Tony is at around .7 inches so they still have plenty of growing to do

They are only a fraction of an inch smaller than my girls, haha. My girls are all at about an inch not including their tails :)

Our betta's are probably about the same age too LittleDeer. Unfortunately with the PetCo babies their growth is stunted too much from being in the cups in the store with not enough water changes. For the adults it's fine but for the babies it's not because they release a Growth Stunting hormone all the time as babies and it can effect their own body as well :-/

So my boy's are at least 2.5-3 months old now but because their growth is stunted, they aren't where they should be at 3 months old! it's sad to think that but they're growing well now!

Aww, poor babies. Yeah, when I got my girls I guessed they were between 2.5 and 3 months old. Though when I got them they were all very healthy looking and their water was very clean since they were a very recent shipment. Though Sonata is still quite small compared to the other two, and she's the only one who has really had problems. She also gets stress stripes all the time, especially when I change her water. Hopefully she'll start doing better soon. I'm hoping she grows quickly, she seems a little behind. She does seem pretty healthy now, though. That's cute that your babies and my girls are about the same age, though :)

Day 77

So what's the chance that Steve is actually a Dragon Scale? Or does he just have heavy blue iridescence?

These next few pictures are some of the best pictures I've ever taken of these guys! Tony didn't seem to be feeling very well though today, he had stress stripes galore and hasn't had them since he was very young. I also fed them frozen BW's for the first time today and I think he was just really full. He only took one while Steve took two, normal, but I don't think he liked it much.

I also did a 50% change today.

Onto the pictures!!!



You can see Tony's growth in his tail has started to get uneven as well


Steve being bright and majestic lol


Detail of Tony's tail! He's definitely got 4 ray's so far but his spread isn't great yet, but I'm thinking Delta now!


Bonus Shrimp! lol Tony was off in the back as you see so I had to preoccupy my time with the Amano XD


lol




You can see Steve's scaling here, I really am wondering if he's a Dragon!






Tony! And these are the best pics I've ever taken of him!!




My camera is weird lol nice detail of his tail though!


I love his blue irid!


All the pictures for today! Wow what an exciting journey this has been! 77 days later and what a change! It truly is amazing to watch these beautiful creatures grow up and see what they'll turn out to be!
