Ohh, When they are small their so extra sweet, My heart really goes out to them.

I know, always amazed me how you seemed to have such great luck with pellets,
I sure never have had any luck with them. I gave up on them a fair while ago, containers just pushed way in back,

I have some of those critter cages, They sure can come in handy,
But then I got a zillion smaller tanks around this place, Everywhere you look is tanks, either in use or stacked for future use when needed. Sure is a job keeping things clean and tidy around here days, Keeps me pretty busy,
But I enjoy it and thats what counts..

Well congrats on your new little ones, You thinkin bout breeding maybe?

If things were different and I had my own place, more money and room, it would be something I wouldn't mind trying. I got the crowntail because he was so small. I can watch him grow. They both seem to a little shy right now but as they get used to their new homes, I guess they'll do better. I gave the female a little daphnia since its really small. I think she's eating it.

When their small like that seems most are shy, especially the little girls,
I use to wonder if they were eating cause all they did was hide, I'd oft times had to go looking for them just to see if they was alive, and they'd slink away at that, But after a few weeks I started seeing more and more of them,
Now most of them is very big girls and far from being shy, They nibble on my fingers and get real excited everytime I come near, I have to be careful when working in their tanks cause they gotta be right there seeing everything your doing, They are just so adorable!

I have one little one now that Is very small and tiny, but shes already not as shy as she was,, give her a few more weeks and I'll probably put her back in the 20 gallon tank with the big group I got going. If she does good there I'll leave her, if not she'll continue in her own tank..
I have some older females I have to keep by themselves, their just plain fighters no matter what..

If you lived close I would give you some tanks and some betta's to go with them.

I been thinking about buying a hugh tub, Place some drain holes in along the top, put lots of hiding places & floating material, Then sitting it outside this summer, Put a male betta and several very small , young female betta's in it and see what happens over the summer months......

i'm still curious about where you keep all these guys!
Well here's a pictures of my Computer desk, It houses some of my temp homes for some of my newer betta's until I get their permanent homes ready,
However sometimes it makes me wonder, Because they really do seem super happy in these small tanks,

I get hugh bubble nest without fail each and every morning,

They are always super active and just love there water change times,
They get so excited when I pick their little tanks up , they flip and try to help me alone,
I put the little cup in and they scoot right in an wait to be lifted out, and get so excited when I place them back, they flick around my fingers and I swear sometimes I get kisses,

These little guys really amaze me sometimes on how super smart they are,

I went out and bought some fake plants to put in the new containers. I picked up a cool looking bridge but when I got home, I didn't have it. It got lost somewhere along the way. I looked on my receipt and it wasn't listed so I guess I must have put it down and never picked it back up or something...

It has a tun of settings, including under water,
It Has
C, M, Av, Tv, P, Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Night scene, Indoor, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Underwater, Color accent, Color swap, Night shot, Kids & pets, Foliage, Stitch assist,and movie, I've tried messing in all the settings, Sometimes I get fairly good pics, other times I can't do crap,
Any good ideas on what mode and settings I should try, I'm open to any new Ideas I might not have thought of or tried yet.

Hmm. i think kids and pets is usually for subjects that move quickly, which means it probably uses flash or requires high lights. You can try the manual mode and see if you can lower the aperature to like 2.8 (i'm not sure you can on point and shoot cams) and then increase the ISO to about 800 and then mess around with the shutter speed. Another idea that has worked ok is to have someone hold a flashlight on your fish. then you don't have to worry so much about lighting. :) there are some good links out there if you google fish photography, but the ones i've looked at also recommend SLR cams because you can control more. Since it's digital, just snap away and keep the good photos!

I've tried the kids and pets, kinda thought it would fit the bill, But seems no matter how I do it, I get some of the worst with that setting,
This is about the best I could get using Manual,

Pictures seems nice and all, but the color is way off, He's definitly not that color,

This seems to be about the best I can figure out, using the "C" mode, not sure what C means but anyways,
No flash.

Wow such cute bettas! You must have a full-time job cleaning out all of these tanks! I absolutely despise water changes, and I can hardly stand it with the four tanks I have. I can't imagine having more!!
