I ended up naming that blue HM Indigo. My now ex boyfriend took him when we broke up, he was very expensive so I don't really blame him. He kept a lot of fish and Bettas too. He's still doing fine, in a heavily planted Spec V with some ramshorn snails at his house. Him and Tiamat would be a perfect pair lol.

I've named the new candy koi PK Castiel, and I picked up a Betta from my job to fill the 2G. The filter on the 2.5g died and unfortunately it's an integrated one, I've been having that issue for a long time with those all glass Top Fin tanks. He's in the smaller tank until I can track one down. This is him, I've actually been looking at this guy since he came in. He wasn't looking too hot lately so I brought him home. He looks great now! I'm thinking of naming him Uno.

Well, I'm going to lose Bahamut and I have no idea why. He's pineconing, not eating either. I haven't managed to treat dropsy successfully in all the years I've had Bettas, so I'm just making him comfortable until he's gone or until I need to euthanize.

Now that I think about it, two days ago I introduced a mystery snail from a friend's tank into his without quarantine. None of her fish were sick, I figured it was fine. The snail is fine but suddenly he's not.. That's the only cause I can think of.

I just put Bahamut to sleep. I'm really not sure what happened. My coworker suggested he might have just been sick even when I got him. I only had him for about 3 months, usually imports, especially VTs, live a lot longer than that.

Not really sure what to do now.. It feels very empty at my desk without him in there. I didn't have him for super long but I loved watching him.

I brought home a standard red VT boy. I haven't had a plain Betta in a while. He's very small, I moved him to the 2g and I moved Uno to the bigger 2.5g. Here he is, he's named Chili.

I've added a new resident to Bahamut's tank. He's a captive bred Betta Smaragdina. Don't worry, I have some IAL coming soon and I'll darken his tank up with some tannins. I'm still undecided on a name, naming wilds is hard.

He almost didn't make it. The seller didn't offer overnight shipping, so he got shipped through priority 3 day, and he was in the mail for 4 days. He was delayed, and when I went to the post office to get him he wasn't ready for pickup yet. They told me he'd have to wait until tomorrow. I was really upset because one more day could be the difference between a living and dead fish, especially being in the mail for 5 days, but I left and hoped for the best. I went to work, and when I came home, his box was sitting on my chair, and my mom was floating him in his tank. Someone from the post office personally delivered him to my house. I'm glad they did because he looked terrible.
