Journal 9

So, I have at least 10ish fry from Yue and Kisa's second mating, figured out how to hatch BBS, been using Sirius as a fish garbage disposal (a lot of my ghost shrimp appear to be losing their heads in someone's cougcoughHa'ricough tank), and got 3 more betta (1 female and 2 male) so... I officially have a problem. As soon as I get my other 10 gallon split, that'll be home to Yue, Tony (new white/grey & blue with red wash), and Uo. The girl will go into the 29 community as soon as she's out of QT and I'm done building it and get it cycled. Hana is bubble nesting like crazy. It covers about a third of his tank space. I'll do pics tomorrow. Kisa and Yue are both recovering, as far as I can tell, the fry are doing just fine, being pairs of zipping eyes.

And Luna's being a spaz, as usual.

Journal 10

Just thought I'd give a quick update. The female died 2 days after purchase, so did the male guppy. Got a refund for her. Gathered material for a self dimensioned 30ish gallon community, sorority tank. New guys are fine, still can't for sure tell if Uo is male or female (some days I think I see an egg spot, other days I don't), and have a dozen or so babies to deal with. And... pics (for pics of the babies, check the spawn log):

Not the best image of Hana, but he wasn't be cooperative

7.09 (5).JPG
Uo is once again confusing the hell outta me when it comes to gender, I sti think male, but I'm going to candle him this weekend and see if I can see anything

7.09 (4).JPG
Inu and Uo have daily flaring contests, kinda funny, as Inu is twice as big as Uo.

7.09 (12).jpg
Yue is hanging out with his glofish buddy until the other 10 gallon is ready for habitation

7.09 (13).JPG
Kisa's still in recovery, but I've got everything for my sorority tank, just need to get it built

7.09 (9).jpg
The other girls are good.

7.09 (11).JPG
Ha'ri is still as prissy as ever. I think next breeding will be her and Inu, just outta color curiosity

7.09 (10).JPG
Rin's a bit bigger than when I got her, and she's definitely colored up. I find her grizzled coloration so pretty.

7.09 (14).JPG
Meet Tony, a red white and blue HMDT (named after America's righteous alien buddy from Hetalia).

7.09 (15).JPG
and Alfonse, a metallic grey HM or SDeT. He has a tiny red spot toward the back of his anal fin, so it's his blood seal

7.09 (7).JPG
And Sirius likes when the bettas get angry at the ghost shrimp, cause it means he gets a nice treat.

7.09 (16).JPG
This is my new guppy, Mama Mab. I'm going to let Sirius get a little hunting practice now and then, when their population gets a bit out of control. They'll be getting a 2 way split 10 gallon after her brood reaches sexual maturity.

7.09 (8).JPG
And Luna, my derp of a cat. She has been proving her Toothless-ness by head tilting, hanging upside down off things, and being a cuddle monster. This is her telling me that I don't get to use the WiiFit again

Frustration!!

Well, Ha'ri has let me definitively let me know that she is a solo fish. Rin got into her side of their split tank Monday (after midnight) and within 4 hours, Ha'ri had partially blinded her, and completely torn her stomach out. Like, cartoon cannon ball hole where her stomach used to be. So, Ha'ri is going in the glofish 5 gallon with just the assassin snails for company, Tony and Al will go into the 5.5 split (after I finish fixing/stabilizing the divider), Clyde (only glofish) and crew with go with Mama Mab, and Yue will go in the other portion of what I've been using as QT. All of this, after I do a good scrub clean on the tanks.

Speaking of tanks, built my 30 gallon community, just need to do the water test. 31x19x12, so basically a wider 30, more surface area. So, sorority starting soon. Everyone else is good. MM hasn't popped yet, although she looks like she's getting close. Starting to mix frozen BBS into the fries meals to try and wean them off of live food.

Oh, and I've decided to change Hatori's name to Arachne. The gentle reserved Hatori doesn't deserve to have a vicious, territorial betta as a namesake. Although, did consider changing it to "Ren", which is the name of Akito's mother in Fruits Basket, how is a vicious jealous soul, but decided Arachne was more fitting her colors.
