I have spent a lot of money and time today on my new "betta central" in my living room and I am a happy camper with how it came out... :D
So... first things first, the setup
This is my new tank setup for the moment! The top left ten gallon is my sorority which now houses 2 CT females, a HM female, and a new veil tail female that I got today at Petco. The dynamic has settled greatly since adding the fourth fish... I had an incident with the other fourth "female" turning out to be a male, I think? lol anyways... The upper right ten gallon is my future breeding tank, but currently home to the unknown gender CT and the new Blue butterfly DeT male that I got from Petco tonight.... yeah, I needed another male like I need a hole in the head... so yeah.
The bottom three tanks are (left to right) Glaedr's new 2.5 gallon, Shruikan and his tank, and Thorn's new 2.5 gallon. I am waiting for new heaters for these tanks so the covers can sit properly. The heaters on there currently hang on the edge of the tank so I have to get the new ones so this doesn't look silly. The lower shelf is now lit up with two under the cabinet plug in florescent lights (18") that I got for about 10$ each at home depot. The shelf also now has its own power strip and I love how it looks! This is my dream setup here!
This is it with the room lights off!
The sorority. They got another terracotta pot just in case, as did the boys, they each have one now!
Thorn's setup. :)
Shruiky's setup. The Blue mystery snail has been named Captain Chaos by my friend, lol. I think it's pretty epic!
Capt. Chaos up close. I love him!
Shru and Capt. Chaos again.
This is my petco find Delta male. I still don't have a name for him (or any of my females for that matter, cause I'm not creative...)
I couldn't help myself. He was just so stunning.... I need to go to Betta fish anonymous... I am admitting I'm addicted. LOL
I just realized I didn't get an up close of Glaedr's tank but it has brand new water and is bubbly and that bothers me, so I'll get one when the bubbles go away tomorrow. And I'll also try to get individual pics of the females tomorrow as they are all a little stressed and a couple are bloated so they are just not up to their normal beautiful selves right now. lol.
Thanks for looking!
