Well, tonight/tomorrow my first little one will be removed. Hes getting too aggressive and the others tend to hide from him. My dad/a friend of my husband both want one asap but im unsure of when its best to start giving them away. I have two definate males terrorizing each other/the rest. One moreso then the other, but the other doesnt back down so technically i have 2 to be jarred. Ive got 1/2 gallon jars for them to be in, im just making sure to get the temps just right, and they all accept dry foods. They are 2m 1 week old, is that too soon to give them to new owners? My husbands friend is asking lots of great questions about water, filter plants ect so im going to write up an instruction info page for her also.
I bought a little girl at Petco a month ago who was only slightly bigger than a neon tetra. Sadly, she got sick and passed. I definitely think subjecting them to the stress of shipping at this age is too much for them but then, those breeders who supply to chain pet stores don't really care about that sort of thing anyway, do they? All the littlest bettas look so scared and clamped at the pet stores.
Aw. Well i dont want anything to happen to them and im not shipping, just slowely "moving" one from my house to dads, the friend of my husbands is going to wait longer to get a better idea on colors. She wanted my sharky or squito and i said no XD
LOL YEP. They said "what about the green blue one?"
"i want him" "nah im keeping him"
"I saw a blue one"
"thats squito, a female, and im putting her with her sisters in a 20g, pick from one of my 7 white bodied/red tailed ones that all look almost the same...wait except miss piggy" LOLOLOL
Actually the white bodied, red finned ones are shimmering a very light baby blue so i think they will look like electra at some point, which is really exciting. Shes beautiful, and a male version of her would be WOW. Squito is most similar to oldman, so i guess im going to have a girly version of oldman to keep after hes gone :))
My poor oldman. Stupid me left the fish food *where i thought* was up high. But my daughter climbed up, got it, and threw a handful of pellets into his tank. I was doing the dishes and noticed the unusual quiet and saw him picking at the bottom and grabbed a baster but i was too late, he looked fat. Now...hes more fat, so fat his belly looks stretched, miscolored and alittle pineconed. Hes resting at the bottom, lethargic. Sakura, should i just let him rest and hope he passes it or should i rush him into some epsom salts? >.<
