Cool new here :) me and my fish say hello

dont ask me why i didnt sign up here earlier lol. caus' i do not know...
hello everyone!!!

had betta for quite a while now. started with a royal blue veil tale and after that a red veil tail. now the collection has def grown a little bit lol. after the 2 males i said id try a female and see what they are like. this is the girl i started my current stock with; a blue veil tail with vbrant colors


then, 2 more got added. a young cambodian and an orange. unsure of tail types but im guessing veil tails my old female is in the middle and a cory in the background.


then to the males; "ghost", my white/opaque/blue/pink/all-colours-of-the-rainbow-and-cant-decide delta....(super delta?) he's a very cheely chap. always up front saying hi. he's at rest here, and when he flares he adds another few degress to his amazing tail. his ventrils need to grow a lil, they are a lil crinkled




then we have this new lad... he's refusing his food, lurking in the corners and loosing his color. very worried bout him. doesnt say hi etc etc... i hope he'll make it caus he is a smashing guy. he's red/pink/purple with green rays and white outline on his fins. but like i said, he is not a happy camper...




and here's my beauty! draco! he is one amazing fella! so many fins he can hardly swim lol a lovely lively chap. very cheeky and alert. his hobby is stare contests with the cory lol. ill get more pics of him soon. my camera is all outta' batteries


this is the current tank setup;

draco's crib; pink lid, 32L tank with light, surface filter and 300w heater.
he has a cory there to accompany him
still need to get a decoration... i keep pushing it caus im broke lol.

the girls are in the rectangular clear seal tank next to draco. tis' a 28L tank with filter and 100w heater. they have lots of decorations in their home incl live plants. they have a cory with them 8)

the 2 other boys are each in 10L tanks with 50w heaters and surface filters.
they also need some deco.... and 2 cory's to eat the dropped food. im so lazy...

all tanks have lighting and backgrounds and are set to 24-25 degrees celcius.

^^^ thanks guys :) i luv em all. never thought these fish had such amazing personalities! each one is so different. tis hard sometimes to actually consider each one's preferences!
actually got the finger out and bought some deco today! looks sweet now. they're all happily swimming in and out of their caves... they were badly needed! the red guy now has a name; "salmon" lol. he's feeling better. he ate his dinner :) ghost isn't eating now lol. they are so picky with their food! draco has nothing else to do that fight his reflection in the glass... he's nuts... too much testosterone!

thanks guys! ^^^^ :) happy to be here! so much to read! cant catch up lol

ah the girls are smashing together. and they are underestimated! my girls are extremely vibrant in color. pictures dont do them justice at all. and their tank is so happy, busy and active! occassionaly there's a collission between the girls racing around and the poor cory that happens to get in the way! they come racing round the bend and then go "eeeekkk!!!! whoah watch where your going you idiot!! we're racing here!" LOL

have all the fish on different foods.... tis' complicated lol
draco wants the food to sink into his range caus his fins are so heavy he doesnt swim for it, so he's on small pellets. the girls are on all types of food caus they dont care... they're greedy. salmon is on brine shrims and ghost is on dyphnia....
