My shipment from Darkmoon17 came today :D (pic heavy)

~~~ I apologise in advance for the spam~~~

So, i have been waiting for what seems like forever for this shipment of fish!! XD

First off, i would like to thank Darkmoon17 from the very bottom of my heart, she is very nice, and a pleasure to do business with! Perhaps we could even become friends? :3 I absolutely love every one of the fish you sent me! I cant even tell which of the females is a 'cull', and neither of the males look like 'culls' to me either. XD You will have to point out which female it is to me.

First off, the girls. :3

I redecorated the tank so that my current girls dont get nasty, so the tank has... six platy, six kuhli loaches (four black two striped), and fourteen female bettas. Tank is double filtered, and i do a 50% water change weekly.

Tank:


Now on to the new girls!! Darkmoon, can you tell me what they would be called, color wise? i have an idea, but i want to know if i am correct.

Sharkie:


Babs:


Midge:


Coroline:


Lola: (she gets two because neither one came out very well... lol )



Bunny:


They are all so beautiful! I cant wait to see everyone swimming together in the tank!! :3

And the two boys. You have no idea how pleased i was to see them!! OMG they are a dream!!

Boy #1 (Thinking Artimus, because of moon shaped mark on head?) :






Boy #2 (no idea... Help me out guys!!) :






WHEW!! That was a lot... Tell me what you guys think!! :3 I cant wait for you all to see them!!

this has me curious a little bit. The two boys certainly appear as id they would be from the same spawn colour and marking wise. However one is a PK and one is a halfmoon type. Can both varieties be in the same spawn.

They are gorgeous!!! Great choice of names! I'm terrible at naming my bettas.
I hope you don't mind me anwering RedneckBettaGuru's question.

@RedneckBettaGuru: The second fish is not a PK, it's a delta and that just looks like he's got some growing to do. You can find deltas, super deltas, HM, and PK in the same spawn. Actually, depending on the fish you use, when breeding what you think it's HM x HM will give you a very small percentage of true HMs. There's a LOT of fish, even in AquaBid, labeled as HMs that are not true HMs when you compare IBC standards. This is why it's very important you know how to select a female if you want to breed HMs, they are obviously the hardest to tell if they are true HMs unless you know what to look for.
Hope this answers your Q :D
