Meet Lapis & Opal (Operation Rescue Betta)
Hello one and all,
As some of you may know I have been following a Sorority Tank that a friend has set up. Today I popped along to see the tank, and it is beautiful. 40 Gallon with 15 Females, 7 Albino Corydora, 12 or so Rasbora. Anyways, the Females have been fighting and there is no will or desire to separate into smaller tanks. So I popped along at lunch time and picked out two of the worst bullies in the tank.
First is Lapis, a HMPK (I think) female. I cannot really tell her body colour due to the Stress Stripes that are all over her, however she does have a fantastic purple wash to her, my camera phone however separates this into red and blue. Probably the quickest Betta I have seen. So so fast. Currently sat in a 2G Heated Tank with Resin and Silk plants and a poorly Echinodorus Reni. I will continue to do daily/every other daily small water changes (10-20%) until I can pick up a small filter for the tank.
Next we have my personal favourite fish, Opal. again I think HMPK female. White body, red fins. She is currently in my planted Fluval Spec III (spare) I was using this tank to propagate my plants but now has an occupant. I'm not sure about this but she is so much smaller than the other fish in the tank, she seems considerably younger but is very very aggressive and territorial (Have to be careful of my hands in her tank- to not stress her out) however she seems to have unclamped already in her new home.
Now to look for suitable Tanks to Divide!
