My Babies<3

My first fish, Massacro. Who I call Acro<3 I just had to get something red. It's my favorite color. :D I didn't think he was what I was looking for but then I got him home and I was in love. He's such an adorable fish personality wise. And is not scared of me /at all./ Plus he's such a tiny fish, how can you go wrong? c:



My second fish I didn't think was going to live. And thanks everyone here for helping me pull him through what I think was a really bad ammonia burn. (I wish my flash didn't make the blue in his eyes disappear to yellow. D:)



He loves this spot in his tank.



A vid I uploaded of him being more energetic to show my friend who was also worried.

And finally, my newest betta. As of yet unnamed. I take a while to name them. Feel free to suggest, but be ready for me to hate your name. LOL I'm so picky. My names all have meaning. c: To me and to the fish. I love this new fish. Even if his dragon scales are messy and not desirable. He looks like a koi fish because of his silly orange patterns that I think will get much more orange with time. (and color enhancing flakes :D)






Somewhere I can spam my new obsession, yay. :D

I know. D: I have really limited space, like, really limited space. Just my room. :/ I know it's frowned upon, but I don't plan on keeping him in it his whole life. :c Plus I had him in there for QT while he was sick.

^As long as you make the due effort to clean it, I see nothing wrong with it.
They have sales from time to time on ten gallon tanks at Petsmart with a hood/light/tank combo that are under $25 and are roughly the same size as what Id imagine the combo of your current tanks are, so you coul divide it by three and have an all-in-one!

I do. My betta are all very happy and healthy. I think the fact that I nursed Romulus back to health in my small tank shows that he's getting much better treatment.

What proves that is I went in to get more plants for my big 5gal and was taking to a lady I usually trust for info (cat info, at least) and she told me doing daily partial water changes (as suggested by OFL) was too much and I was going to do him in for it. I conferred that I was trying to ease what I believe was ammonia burn and she didn't care >:C!

The other worker around there was saying how she thinks her betta lived so long because she didn't clean it too much. And then my usually trusted employee says that people usually clean the tank too much! Ugh! If you take them out properlly it's not stressful. My first betta lets me change his decorations with him in there, he literally swims around my hand asking what I'm doing. God. -flustered-

Well, too too many changes can be stressful, yeah- but theyre needed! People with like .5 gals need to do it like crazy, and I know from experience that it freaks them out x_x;

Sometimes pet store employees have good intentions, just wrong information.

(I like to correct them ;D)

Was just frustrating that she was saying that my changes could have been why he was almost completely unresponsive and wouldn't eat for four days. >:C when the fish I got from my local mom and pop shop were excited and happy when I got them home.

I would have corrected them but it was 2v1 and they wouldnt of listened.

yessss, the marina betta kit, i loathe it.
i got one and changed my mind about it after a day and went and got a 10 gallon instead back when.
i use it for measuring water changes now because it's half a gallon and = 1 drop of prime!
