Penelope looks VT but I think Pyro might be a DeT when he grows up more, but if he retains only two ray's then he could be PK or VT. The dorsal isn't the normal VT dorsal so I dont' think he's VT, but perhaps PK!

Really? Hmm, I know snails are messy, but I didn't think it would be that bad? Aq advisor also only had the stocking level around 60 even with all the things I want to add. It will also be heavily planted! I'll see how it comes along as time progresses and decide. Worst case some get rehomed or moved, or I just decide never to get them to begin with! I'm just figuring out what I like and what works :)

It's also not just the bio-load either, you have to account for how much bio-film they'll eat, algae and all. Of course you can still supplement them but their natural algae diet amoung other plant matter will be best for them. Usually it's just 1 snail per 10 gallons of water, varies depending on the snail and what they do like Mysteries vs. MTS. But you can try and if it happens to not work out you can find homes but I'm sure if you keep them supplemented and whatnot it should be fine.

Any input on possible sex & fin type would be appreciated. I am also VERY curious about what the white spot is behind the ventrals on the first fish.

Omg she does look almost identical to my little one! SO ADORABLE!

You have gorgeous fish, and I LOVE their names!!! Also, what are you using as a separator in the tank?

Thank you! Yeah, I'm loving my Marvel theme

For dividers I have one Lee's Divider for 10 gallon and the white one is just plastic mesh from Wal-Mart. Here's a tut on making cool dividers for cheap: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/d...ividers-21866/

My little betta

I also saw a baby betta at petco and instantly fell in love with her and had to protect her, I mean even with the conditions she was in she still had spunk! I'm pretty sure she's female but that all I can guess...I've never had a betta before. I've had her about two weeks now and she's still alive, and I hope she's healthy and happy. (I am worried I stress her out, she always has those marks it seems......)http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/843/h67l.jpg/
If anyone can sort of see what she is I'd appreciate knowing more about my Monoke.
