Marlie has squeal worthy lips! No way could she be cuter. Precious.

It is really HARD to find good food locallly! Pet Supply Plus seems to my best bet. I will have to check there for the crab food. It has calcium and stuff for molting, right? Fintastic has a pathetic selection of food, PetSmart has some Omega One and a bunch of "junk food" and Pet Supply Plus seems to have the complete line of Omega One and some other nice brands. Do you have one of those nearby? They are a chain.

Snippy Snappy makes a "ditch" and lays in it. But I do not think she gets under the gravel. She dissapears too though. I see Candy ALL THE TIME. Snippy came out tonight, after all lights went out. First time I have seen her in days.

Yes we do have a Pet Supply Plus. Actually that is where I get a lot of supplies. Ours has pretty good prices on filters, meds, and aqueon products. I have bought several tanks from them as well as the glass covers. They also had a really good price on vacuums. We have a couple of local aquarium stores I typically get food in. One of them will order about anything I want, but they said they can no longer get the crab food? Petsmart here has the best selection of silk plants and caves. Sometimes they will have some good live plants as well but pricey. Petco has the prettiest bettas around town. I like to pop in there periodically to see what is new. their tissue sample plants are usually pretty good. The staff calls me the betta lady hahaha

Aquarium
Mine have dug a hole under the breeding net, which I have put under water and in the corner so I don't kill the gammarus shrimp breeding in it. I thought it would make a large cage with the java moss in it, which I hope will eventually cover the sides. My crayfish dug a tunnel under the net and use it as a cave.

My thoughts on your missing crayfish -- if your betta killed it, likely it was right after it molted. Otherwise, it dug a cave in the substrate and hid really well after molting.

For food, I've been feeding a variety of defrosted food, betta pellets, and algae wafers. I do the same with my shrimp and the assassin snail. Once I push a pellet down with my finger, it usually sinks to the bottom (or gets shoved around by the filter for a while and caught on a plant, depending on the tank).

I think you are right Sadist. It wasn't long after I found the molted shell that I found the dead one. It looked like it was headed to opposite side of tank. I bet Nikolai took opportunity if he saw it. He really hasn't bother the others. If I can get by the aquarium store today, I might pick up some shrimp tubes to add for some extra security. This stupid mystery snail in there keeps wrecking my rock caves. I think he is just looking for food but driving me crazy! Do the assassin snails do ok with the crays? Actually I really need some assassins for Goliath's tank. Pond snail overload.

Last night was water changes. Look at these boys marbling more. Snowball, my solid white fish, the black coming out more and more. I am wondering if his fins will eventually be all black. Alpine has no traces of white on him. Sure has turned beautiful blues. Avalanche blues are more prominent as well.

Fin today. He is settling in nicely. I am treating fins with Aquarium salt and IAL to start. Will see how he does. Hopefully can avoid antibiodic but will have on hand if need it. He also had a methylene blue bath last night. He ate his pellets well last night. Today he got some brine shrime and formula one mixed in. He was so excited real food! Loves his little cave and is making me biggest bubble nest under IAL. He also seems grateful for no filtration. Going to give fins a few days of healing time before add that back in. I think I will do a sponge filter for him. He was sucked into the store filtration system and fin rot as well. It had shredded him to pieces. A lot of others too weak to move away. So sad. I hope he does well. He is a very pretty boy and very sweet nature.

I am in love with Titus.

So those betta displays in the stores with filtration...are they heated? If the bettas are cold no wonder they do not have the strength to avoid being sucked in. :( There really is no easy solution. They need warm and clean water! Or at least a small selection so turn around is FAST. Heart breaking.

So glad to see Avalanche! I love his frosty blue. Zadok is getting that same color on his tail and daaaark red on his other fins.

I had to giggle, no one would believe you if you said Alpine was white. "yeah...suuuuuure..." like Antigua. He looks nothing like my avatar picture! Marbling is an amazing thing.
