I love no-name and Mystery!! I remember someone saying that no-name looked like he had gotten into some chocolate and smeared it all over his mouth!! Maybe Willy Wonka?? Willy for short? If you ever don't have room for him....
Hawk Lips it is! just kidding, thanks everyone, unfortunately Clampy bit off a ton of his tail and dorsal today, he has the best set up,heater, five gallon..plants, rocks, he gets to live on my bedside table, I just don't have any more for I can do for him, I think. arg!
K-I might consider that offer- I love Hawk Lips but I realize he is the only one I could probably every adopt out look-wise, what kind of space do you have for him?
Maybe we could do a trade for some tank bottom gunk!
I am pretty sure something horrible happened to Mystery at one time, some sort of abuse or fighting, but he is such an enthusiastic little guy with his curled fins and big scar on his head (looks like he got in a knife fight) He just got moved into a three gallon and is loving it!
sj- Hawk lips! Ha! That reminds me of "Hot Lips Hoolihan" and Hawk Eye from M*A*S*H!! hehehe
I think I'll have to pass on Hawk for now... I just adopted one from Zenandra so will only have one divided section left. There is someone else in the area who adopted one of my guys who might be interested... I'll mention it to her! She's a very good betta mom.
For Clamp- how often do you change his water? do you move his things around in his tank when you do WCs? Have you changed anything around his tank? I have a VT who is in a divided tank, and when I take one of his tank mates out from either side of him, he starts biting his tail. He doesn't like the change around him. And some guys don't like having things moved around in their tanks, or having WCs because that requires moving them around. If this is the case, he would be a good candidate for a cycled tank so he'd have less WCs.
It's hard to say, since he started the tail biting in his three gallon the day I fasted him, then I out him in a five gallon and all was well, He has also blown a bubble nest today. I was always changing his tank set up since I got him, adding more things, so I assume he is used to change. This might sound weird but I think it is the attention I give him, like I was gone all day today, hence the tail biting? Ah! he's a jealous boyfriend! lol
Hawk Lips, heh-well okay ask her, but I'd really rather you took him, so I could get updates of course, maybe I'll hold on to him a bit longer...:)
sjones I was curious are you willing to adopt out the white double tail boy? Since you have lost Clampy (RIP),I wasn't sure if you were still considering adopting out one of yours or keeping them all? I think he's a very handsome fella,and I've been wanting a white betta. I was looking for a white CT,but have had no luck. Have you found a name for him yet? I was going to suggest M.J or Mick as in Mick Jagger from the Stones,since he's all lips lol!
Oh no Clampy is alive and well, I just took him on vacation with me for the fourth of July! I was thinking of adopting out "Mick" but am having a change of heart,I have to post some recent pictures, he has turned pink/gold/white and his double tail had gotten massive, it's a combtail and it's clear at the ends (like butterfly-ish). I cracked his terracotta pot so he can swim through it like an arch and tool out one of his plants and he is like a new man,,lol! I will post pictures soon.
