Thank you.

Sadly had to put the copper girl down today, she would perched herself on a tall silk plant by the surface and wouldn't move or eat eat. I think it did a lot more internal damage than I'd realized. At least she got to go peacefully with clove oil.. I hate the smell of that stuff...

5g
flora: riccia and marimo
fauna: 1 'mustard' (i think yellow salamander is the correct term?) eepk male
filter: azoo mignon
heater: hydro theo 50 watt
light: finnex 16" i think fuge ray?
substrate: white sand from petco
ferts: weekly flourish and potassium -3 drops and 1 drop- for the riccia







So sad news, Chiyome finally had to be put down. She lived a long life but by the end was getting lethargic and eventually had kidney failure. Put a nerite in her tank for a few days to eat diatoms on the glass then did a massive water change yesterday and moved Ciel over from the pond pot in the aquaponics room. I haven't been able to see him much since he went in-so many floaters and he never wanted to stay put to be looked at. He deiced the table was better than the tank when putting and flopped out of my hands =.= but he's in now and hopefully fins will heal (think damage is a bit from water quality issues in the pond pot-apparently i had pest snails in there and never saw any (just all their poop when I went to take Ceil out). Being in a clean snail free tank with better (lower) nitrate levels should let the fins heal up quickly. Ceil has a lot of personality and I love the big EE pectoral fins. My husband amusingly is not a fan of the huge fins, he prefers hmpk- because they 'look like they could survive in the wild'/'look more like wild bettas', but he didn't mind me moving this fish into his tank. Ceil got his name from David, after a character in a show we'd watched from Queen Elizabeth era (original, not current one), the character has frilly shirt sleeves that came out of his jacket and the pectoral fins reminded my husband of those.
We'll have to see how he does being able to see his reflection and see André next door. The pond pot did not have any reflective surfaces for him to see himself before, hopefully he doesn't mind, if I have to add anti reflection inserts then I won't be able to see him anymore :c

No photos today.. went into petsmart to get a siphon for one of my aquaponic tanks (have 3 and only 2 siphons for all 3-want to reduce risk of cross contamination) made the mistake of looking at bettas... there was a chocolate crown tail! Hnnnnnng so hard to put him back. I'm trying desperately to cut back on bettas but arrch chocolate!!! but not a tail type I'm a fan of.. but its a color on my 'bucket list' >.< There were also 2 lovely mustard hm boys there and one vt that looked like Cacao.

Curse you lack of will power!
Well I can scratch chocolate betta off my bucket list (all that's left is orange Armageddon (with no black pineapple hints or those irids on the scales)

Need to name him.. I love orange sherbet and chocolate truffle ice cream scoops in a cone.. may try to make a name up from the initials o.s.c.t.i. .... Scoti... meh makes me think of the dog breed..





Some of the healthier bettas at petco: 2 dtpk, a red platinum pkhm, copper gas hm, and unsure if chocolate or mustard hm (think mustard), didn't get any of these but did get wood for a tank rescape from petco.

Want that first DTPK *dies* but I already have at least 3 new bettas on the way.

The Males~
Lucifer, Gabriel, Titan, King, Finnegan, Fin-again & Ricky.
Lucifer & Gabriel are my only non-rescues...

The Females~

Well my will power would have been the same. Love chocolates. Could go with a chocolate name like Russell (Russell Stovers). Have had a piece that had an orange filling ;) He is a cutie. Enjoy all of your tank updates and especially love your break downs of tanks and what you fertilize with. Your EE boy has amazing flappers!
