had to pick one to keep...

so out of the two fish i had i could only keep one.
i decided on this one that was meant to be a girl





I think I'll save the name Cri-kee for a REAL girl and call this guy Khan (mulans horse)

but im sad i had to give up this lil baby:

It's a shame when that happens. Luckily I've always had room for any female turned males. I had it happen 4 times now, so I usually now look for any signs that might indicate a male such as longer ventrals, sharper anal fin, visible egg spot, beard when flaring etc.

I also have a betta called Khan, but mine is named after the conqueror since he's so aggressive. I like plakats with wild-type colouring. Their colours really pop when they get fired up.

Haha I'm so tired of my males. I have 18 of them, and they are so melodramatic, especially the HMs. Plakats are so much easier. I don't have to sob over ripped fins or chewed tails.

I just purchased what will hopefully be my breeding pair, so I'm all full up now. I just have to smuggle them past my mum. She's too observant, she knows all my fish by name, and I'm running out of corners to hide tanks in
