i also want to get a few more cories, and a couple more female bettas. i keep telling myself i should just focus on plants and the lighting and the five gallon for my boys first buuuut stable numbers are important tooo!
*nods* Yes, yes. Stable numbers. And feeding an addiction to fish. XD
Tiki, Sluggles could have fin melt/saprolegnia. Sapro is practically the only true fungus that occurs with bettas. Others only look like fungus but are bacterial. Try Betta Revive on him. It has malachite green which works on sapro. For Derpy, stringy poo even if it isn't white probably means parasites. Try General Cure.
You can get actual malachite green but treat Sluggles in a tank or container you don't care about if you do. The stuff stains and won't ever come off.
No. But it's okay, I made sure to keep the important stuff in my Dropbox account. :)
He kinda hunted down the shrimps, until he got used to the few he liked, ya know. When they weren't eating him.
Yeah I'll probably get about 8-10. Unless I can find cories. Then I'm getting cories. Problem is finding them. And all I can find is the albinos. Although they'd look cool against the black sand. :)
