Evening all (well, for those of us in a GMT time zone its evening lol).
as some of you will have read, my brother has built me a custom tank to house 6 bettas, based on a barracks sort of idea that you'd see in your local store.
well, we have it mostly populated now, bar two boys in quarantine. I've been promising pictures since i joined, and now i have my PC back, so here we go.
Ok, first up, the overall effect.
and now my gents!
First up is Leonard, my blue/red/purple CT that started the whole thing:
He seems very happy in his new home:
Next up is my red VT that i got at Christmas, called Sheldon:
Next is the VT my brother had reserved for me for a few weeks in the shop he works in, called Raj:
Raj's colours are gorgeous! red/white/blue/and bits of orange in the right light:
and this is Howard, the red/blue/white VT also from the store my bro works in:
Howard and Sheldon having words!
this boyo is called Jim, mostly white VT with traces of red and blue, he's immense! i can't wait to add him to the tank from quarantine to see him under proper light!!!
and if u look closely, some of the Amano shrimp:
now, as you may also have read, i have a blue CT in a quarantined bowl. you can see him in the picture with Jim and u can easily make out the greyness of the fin rot. he really isn't doing well at all, he has developed acute fin rot that has set in in a matter of hours, and he has some form of fungus developed on his face. However, we are treating him using treatments from my bro's work, and we will do our very best for him, we wont just give up!
anyways, comments welcome. there may be some who don't like it or who have grumbles about the set up, but in the last 20 mins we just added more weed to the cells, and we have a large piece of wood to break up for each cell also to give plenty of places for them to hide.
incase you're wondering about the names, i have named the 4 boys already in the tank after the cast of The Big Bang Theory, with the thought that the other two will be named after my favourite drink....Jim Beam, hence the white-ish one is Jim. if the blue CT makes it he'll be Beam, if not i'll reserve the name for another time.
water change and first feeding in the tank to come this evening!
