, thanks! And yeah, that is a dish of sand. I have 3 C.habrosus in the tank (that i found at the local petstore selling for $3 each a few months back. Had to buy! Unfortunately they don't ship them in, only the C.pygmaeus when requested.) and I give them an area so they can dig around in and have their fun... The malaysian trumpet snails also like to dig there as well.. but mostly it was for the cories.
Plus I prefer sand over gravel, sand way easier to maintain. The only problem is I like the darkness of the gravel... and the fact that the gravel was included in the setup. I probably might look into buying iron sand, but its not a pirority ATM.
BTW, nice tanks!
, yep I hope so too. Today my tank water is around 90% clear - slight cloudiness still noted, but nearly back it its old self - and noticed that my betta has a scale growing over one eye (its cloudy) and the other looks like this:
(from llilnaugrim's guide on dragon scales)
Its a shame I didn't notice it before, but I kinda glad I got him. I feel he is better off with me - that has a basic idea on metallic/dragonscale genetics... If he does go fully blind - hopefully not - will care be different from what it is now? he starting to learn about the feeding area and when feeding I tap on the glass. Have started reading up on "diamond eyed" bettas however.
