You're telling me. I went to PetSmart today and decided to look at the bettas... there was a female crowntail suffering from serious SBD issues in that blue medicated water with at least 8 pellets floating around her and it just broke my heart. I took her to the register and showed them and told them I thought I might be able to help her. The cashier called over a manager, who told me to just take her, no charge. Said they just got the shipment in today. If that's true, I'm really sad to think that their bettas arrive in that sorry state.
So she's floating in a hospital 'tank' in the divided 20 gal.
I really need to stop.

Sounds good TOC, just thought I'd point out the black if you hadn't noticed but in that case looks like it might be pigment then! How exciting ^_^

That's super sad about the female CT poor girl, I hope you can fix her up real well! If you need help feel free to PM me ^_^

Aww I'm sorry to hear this!! may Baby Sr. S.I.P.!

Actually most Betta's are fine with guppies, they really only go after their own species. Maybe a nip here or there on the guppies but they usually have no interest whatsoever unless it's a super aggressive Betta and they're invading his "territory"

Aw, I'm sorry Lights :( Keep your chin up, dear!

Random story: On Saturday I was counting back the weeks to approximately when Alaric would have been born/hatched... May 4th. Star Wars Day! Heck yes!! I thought about renaming him Chewy or Vader, since his face is so dark haha but I couldn't - he's just my Alaric :)

Alrighty, as I had mentioned a few pages back (lol) I was going to show updated pictures of my two little babies!! They are now housed in a split 5.5 giving them each roughly 2.75 gallons, fed just about 3 times a day with mostly NLS flakes but I also crush up NLS pellets. I'd crush the Omega but they're really hard to do that >.<

Here's when I first got them the first day, this is Steve:


Tony:


And just a few days ago I took this photos:
Steve!


Tony!


And the two together flaring!

Wow!! Their colors are awesome! It amazes me how they can go from little quite ugly colorless fish into those gorgeous colorful fish. They're amazing lilnaugrim :) And I love their names too!

Thanks Tiffany! Yeah, Steve and Tony are the best!

Thanks CJ! I know they've still got a ways to go, but they're much better in the 5.5 now that they aren't being stunted as much >.<

It really is amazing to watch them grow up and say "I did that, I helped grow that baby!" it's a good feeling when you do it right and I can see why some people breed for hobby!
