Yeah, the hormone thing usually isn't too much of an issue but that could be part of what happened with you guys. I thought the same previously as well and then I started just plopping them in and they were much better and healthier after I did that. I can't say it's 100% success rate but it's sure as heck works for me. Can't remember exactly where I learned it from, I think it was from George but I can't say for sure.

Hmm, maybe will try that in the future. Don't think we will be getting any more cories. These albinos were unexpected, but we already have a nice breeding colony of emeralds.

Gosh, I love black bettas, but taking pictures of them can be a pain in the butt!

Probably my favorite picture of him so far. Excuse the smudge on the tank glass.

One of the nerites died a couple of days ago. Not really unexpected because it never moved more than a few centimeters from where I placed it in the tank. The other one is still alive and moves around (never see it, just that is changes positions), but I only ever see it partially/completely out of the water (often sticking to the rim of the tank or the lid). I assume it must be moving around at night after the lights go out or during the hours I am at school, but it's kind of odd to me that it hangs out of the water so much. Is this normal behavior?

I named the two new guys Quentin (marble DTPK) and Kaveh (black DTHM). The two koi males are still unnamed. They are all really starting to be more comfortable and not as shy. Artemisia is great. She never had any fear though.

Pictures are out of order. Tanks are full of algae. I need to do more maintenance this weekend.

That reminds me I need to tell the gf to bring a couple of those tanks to my apartment (she's coming next week yay!)...

A peek at the recent development of my spawn... I'll add more to my spawn log.

A pretty little female. I honestly don't know which particular one this is anymore because they have gone through many stages of coloring up and marbling.



Blackie is now half black half white. Reminds me of a black and white cookie. Which is incidentally probably my favorite type of cookie.

Lol yes they do...

Guess who came?

Gf is visiting for my birthday. She drove down last night and brought my picks of the spawn. Granted there are only 6 fry in my spawn... So all the fry are separated now since there is one fry left in grow out and 2 were already in their own tanks.
