Wild Betta Simorum in 20long planted

Ok hey yall, I decided to do a journal for the 20l and the new wilds. Keep in mind we are just getting over the flu so this will be a shorter post by me, peachii will add pics and give more details about plant species and add pics where I will do more vids and add them as the babies grow. Here is the first vid to start it rolling... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTaM...ature=youtu.be

Ok the details I know 20l activflora substrate on top of a thin layer of safetzorb abd a hint of black diamond blasting sand, the bettas are wild Simorums they get around 5 inches long, are bubble nesters and have not gotten their adult coloring yet we have had them for coming up on 2 weeks, they are very active, I thought they would be skittish and hide a lot and yes they can hide when they want to, they could be world champions at it, but they are very curious and friendly, today I did a 25% water change on them for the first time and to my shock they were hovering right around my hand while I was siphoning almost like they were wanting to spar with the intruder. I would wiggle my fingers at them to try to shoo them away and again to my surprise they stood their ground!!! They are cute little guys full of spunk that is for sure

he babies are growing fast and are very curious, they all come to the front glass when they see me, but alas I am the food guy. It is going to be fun watching them grow up.

they are eating crushed up kens tropical max color fish food, awesome stuff, or NLS pellets now that they can gobble them down, and no no names yet, still not sure who the boys and girls are, but I think that will change in the next 2-3 weeks

They are getting bigger and full of spunk, they have very big personalities, when the tank next to theirs lights come on they know it is close to food tim, when I enter the room I see 5 fishies faces pressed to the glass. I will do a vid of them in the next couple of days, they are getting huge and starting to color up nicely.No we do not spawn giants, we will let these guys and girls breed freely so we will have some to sell sooner or later
