Okay, so after this morning's scare, I ended up rearranging babyfish's tank. :D He was cupped while I did, because I didn't want to risk hurting him. I took out the silk plant, changed what pot I was using for a cave, and added a few live plants. I also took off the lid, and replaced it with some clear binder sheets with air slits cut into the top. Also brought in a desk lamp and put a 14watt daylight bulb in that.

And this afternoon he got three new MTS buddies. :D



And that explanation of what is meant by 'rays' was really handy! Now everytime I go in, I try to look at babyfish's tail rays. XD So far I only see two, but his fin is still really small. I can barely see with my eyes, and I know my camera can't pick up more detail through the aquarium. Even after 10 days, his tail still has that scalloped look. Isn't it supposed to come and go as their fins grow?

More pictures!

Oh yay! Babyfish started getting in his colors!







Though it's still easy to lose... I have my lights set to turn off for 2 hours during the middle of the "day", and apparently babyfish does not like that. I went in to do a water change while the light was out and babyfish had gone back to being pale with stripes. :( Poor guy!

I experienced that with him yesterday... Went in to see if he wanted to be fed after I fed my cats breakfast at insane-o'clock in the morning, and he was a bit slower to wake up than he usually is when I feed my cats... Freaked me out. I thought he was dying!

My baby (when she still was a baby) would lose her stripes and then they'd come back in a few minutes. Then she would switch from vertical bars to horizontal stripes to nothing then back to stripes...it was silly!

This fry had to moved from the grow out into his own 10g tank he was being a terror on the others so had to be moved. He lost almost all his color for 24hrs and his baby stripes came back. Fonzi is back to normal but he seems lonely guy lol. Be nice or be alone mister. The rest of the spawn is very peaceful with each other.

Wanting to move baby betta to new tank

Hi,

So I am wanting to move my baby betta from his/her current tank to a new larger one. I know a tank needs to cycle but I'm not sure what the best way to do this is. He/she is doing great so I don't know if it is worth moving or just letting him/her be. If I decide to, what should I do. I know baby's are more sensitive so I want to make sure I do it correctly.

Thanks!!
