Thanks a lot! I used to miss how old colouring, but now I've come to appreciate his new beauty!

Gonna go do a water change on his tank now, he's usually super active right after them :)

Yeah Chard56 was breeding some, let me see if I can find some pictures. They're still relatively new since it's rather hard to get a line like that going but they're popping up a little more now. Like so: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...sct&1376205063

They haven't quite gotten the web reduction very far yet as you can see but the line is going so that's pretty cool ^_^

That female is gorgeous! I can kinda see the similarities between her and Athena's tails. Wow I hope they get more DTCTs out because they're really pretty! I wouldn't mind having 1 or 2 more Athena's zooming around ;)

Now that you mention MArine's anal fin, I've started to enjoy it a lot more now xD It's cool how it's half black, half blue/white, and a diagonal split.

His dorsal fin is still bothering me though. IT's barely spread out, and usually always clamped. Also, the blackened curling at the end does not look good D: Are you sure it's just the natural colouration? You're probably right, cause if it was finrot, it would've been eaten away by now, since I noticed it quite a while ago.

Marine's a smart little fishy! He's honestly just like Dusk. He never flares when I hold up a mirror, but as soon as I put a betta tank next to his, he's flaring all over the place.

And thanks BettaLover

Yeah it's hard to see, but looking back at the compare pics of Marine, his dorsal is looking more "dead" now. How often are you doing water changes for him? I think you should up the changes and see if that helps it rejuvenate at all.

60% changes once a week.

Should I do 50% changes twice a week?

Yeah I think twice or three times weekly will help that, start with the twice and if you don't see improvement by 2-3 weeks time, bump that up to three times weekly to see if that helps. After 2-3 weeks of that, if it's still looking worse then I'd start looking into some medications for him.

All righty, thanks for the advice!

The frogs seem perfectly fine, and usually they're indicators of when the water is bad, so I'm really confused right now :S

I think it's the reason that the rot hasn't continued down his dorsal so the extra water change in the week will most likely help him out quite a bit I think he does have a natural black coloration there but just that one ray is really looking shriveled and dead-like.
