out of focus, but showing the ammonia burn girl has colored up nicely


didn't realize how much red was was in the blue vt's fins-fat since this is right after blood worm breakfast


and another shot of Midas


Tried to get photos of the other 2 girls but they were too wiggly.

Also, your Petco has lovely Bettas. I really like the Melano and Steel one... But I must resist the temptation as well D:
Thank you ^^
If you really want one and are willing to pay for fish + shipping I'm happy to send one or more your way ^.~

I have seen how they're shipped on those little tiny pouches with many a few tablespoons of water. I mean, it's definitely an efficiency thing, but I do think the smaller amount of water is actually suppose to help prevent them from getting jostled around as much during transportation. Or at least that's what I read somewhere.
It was hard convincing myself not to bring both home. with so little water and the bags not full of air I'd be worried that a wrong wiggle could displace the betta from the water and cause it damage/dry out. I prefer the way they're shipping from online sellers at least they get a bit more water in those bags.

Thank you for the offer! But like I said, I must resist! Lol. I have the tank and everything but I have to move out the Betta I have in there. And wait for the plants to fill in. Thank you Aqua.

You can call me Blu for short!

Thanks for the offer. It'll take all I have to keep my current stock alive through the winter, and I already have the "live food/hospital" tank occupied instead of vacant.

Ammonia burn girl looks like she was starting to get fin rot, too. Hopefully, all those water changes will fix that soon.

I love fat little blue girl! She loves her blood worms already!

10 gallons, petco king and community fish
1 x 5.5 gallons with shrimp and plants
1 x 5.5 male veil tail with plants

Officially naming the steel blue boy Cirrus (you pronounce the 'c' like an 's').

It might be what I thought was ammonia burned fins was fin rot? Photos I took from the first day don't show a worsening in fins compared to the recent red shot.. Maybe I'll put her in the 2g vase now that I have a spare heater and do some aq salt treatment.
Looking at fin rot photos I think Midas might also have a bit of fin rot from his time at the store (thought it was damage from poor handling/shippign at first). So may use his perm tank as an aq salt treatment on him too before plants come in.

All the new girls inhale their food!

Do you have Methylene Blue? That will help more than AQ salt will for that fin rot and possible ammonia burns. I don't see the burns on her though, just the fin rot.

Also, I adore that blue VT girl's point on her tail! She's got some PK genes in there

Took out the java ferns in Freya's tank and put in a plant I really enjoy and was happy to get a hold of again: downoi! Had to stuff some silk plants in the back while waiting for some more plants/driftwood to come in the mail to fill that area out.
photo bucket is being a [censor] and not working again so will post photos later

I made the mistake of shifting some stuff in the 20g and made a huge mess so just ripped everything out, gutted about 1/2 the substrate, spent forever catching white clouds, and than nearly 3 hours doing water changes constantly to get all the poop out (haven't doing a gut-n-clean of this tank in over 2 years). Had to stop as i was way too prune-y to stand it any more. Still need to cut needle/narrow/philipine/threadleaf java fern off their mats and tie them to the manzanita (that will probably take a whole day >.<) THEN replant the tank with all the vals, and a few crypts and bulb plants I have... I need more wide leafed plants for this tank.. maybe I'll buy some over priced amazon swords at the petco this weekend..

Yes I do! will read up on treating with that again.
I know right? i gt her because of that oddball point in the tail, of course as soon as they're all free in the 20g (won't be for a while) I'm sure it'll get nipped off.

Omg been so busy!!! Will do a better update with photos alter. I have all my girls now.. but I'm not sure if 3 of them will make it... I got 4 this past weekend at petsmart-3 hm and 1 vt female. Total girl count is 8. I noticed another hm girl I did not buy was pineconing and nearly dead.. should have stopped right then, but these girls looked(and still look) fine-no visual signs of disease/lethargy etc.. the only issue is they won't eat anything-pellets, garlic soaked pellets, blood worms, or garlic soaked brine shrimp.. it's been 4 days. The newest vt girl eats fine btw. I do their daily water change last each day.. also tried a 1 hour paragaurd dip on one of them, she took it well, but still won't eat =.=

SO I now doubled my betta count >.>''
have mroe updates but need to make dinner

Did 10 second dip method. Both are doing well, fin rot is not getting worse.

Still reading through, your tanks are beautiful. Maybe one day I will finally figure out how to get mine to look as nice.

Also, all of your fish are beautiful!

Have always done baths. What is ratio for dip. Is it more effective than bath?

Really enjoy seeing fish pictures of ones in your area. You have brought home some beauties. I have seen one like the yellow fin boy around here. Those are stunning in person.

Every fish deserves a Chance
