I clean Archi and Skerries' orange juice bottles 100% every two days. I feed sparingly once a day, and so I don't worry about too much waste output. I also have morimo balls in their containers to help squeak by between changes, so I'm not stressing the girls out by messing with them too much.
Doooooooooooo iiiiiiiitttttt, more cute little baby bettas, i want another one too but im guessing my mom dosent, i wonder if i could split the 10 gal. In half or thirds for more bettas sometime. Sushi and two other bettas, that would be so fun!
How can she release the eggs w/o mating? Am I missing something big in Betta care??
Without mating females can either reabsorb them or drop them and eat them up again. Eggs dropped during mating is entirely different as the male has to embrace and fertilize eggs. Otherwise non fertilized eggs can drop as well. We just don't see them as often because girls and other fish eat them up.
I bought two beauties two days ago; one bright aqua and the other, deep blue. I had both in a divided quarantine tank- heated and filtered. Today, Brooke (the blue one) was "sleeping" next to the filter intake. After a few hours, I noticed she was not, in fact, sleeping. I hope I did the right thing: I scooped up Marina (the other) and put her in the sorority tank w/ Gilly and Angel. I didn't want to risk it if she was in a contaminated tank. I put poor Brooke in her original cup and put it outdoors to freeze so I can take her back. I'd have put her in the freezer, but I'm a midnight snacker) Te 3 girls aren't nipping; just begging for food, as usual. The tank has lots of hiding places; I just hope her health holds out.
