My apologies if this is too soon to post pictures again. I try to go a week in between but, well, they were being super feisty today so I broke out the camera. =3 If it helps, these are actually more recent. The ones I posted this morning were from a few days ago (Elvis from yesterday, as soon as I got him home).

I have a couple questions about Floyd. First, how do you tell if a juvenile is a crowntail? I googled the crap out of it and have no idea. Does he look like one to anyone? Also, does the black head mean he'll become a marble, too, or do some fish just have black heads? I'm skeptical that I got lucky enough to have two marble babies lol.

Ok, either that's an egg spot, or Marley is very good at pretending to be female! I mean, s/he could very well be a male with an egg spot, because Jagger's is very prominent even though she's younger, and they both have light bodies so I don't think the color is throwing me off. Marley is just full of surprises, I guess.

Elvis actually has some color this afternoon!


Bettas prove that change can happen in a matter of hours! Again, I apologize for posting twice in one day! I'm a total showoff mum.

My PetSmart stocks very few bettas... maybe 20 at a time, and they are always in clean cups when I'm there. The PetCo on the other hand, stocks tons and tons and frequently I see very dirty cups and dead fish. Very sad. I think it just depends on the individual store, and the employees who work there. Hopefully more places get caring employees who will take better care of all their fish!

My baby, still unnamed... he's thriving! Purchased two weeks ago. Took very well to his new divided tank versus his baby cup which had poo everywhere.

Yes. I feel so lucky and blessed to have found such a cutie. Right now his dorsal fin looks too big on him. Kinda like a kid going through a growth spurt. :)

Lol I think that's when they're the most adorable, though! That's the point Floyd is beginning to get to. =P
