Well if his beard is anything like Raspberry's, he's definitely a little boy xD Maybe his growth was stunted from being in a cup? That's totally possible, he may not grow much at all if that's the case. You could just call him a mini Betta, and say he's a rare breed if people ask :P

I think if anything, if he were the same size as Raspberry his flare would be bigger XD

My Mom still thinks we saw the ovaries... She says maybe he's a boy and a girl. I think I'm being a little obsessive :)
Today I want to set the filter running, I'm going to let it run in old tank water overnight because... It seems like a good idea? I'm a little out of it today XD

When I set the filter up it was so quiet I couldn't believe it. I ran it overnight in old tank water and lo and behold, I woke up this morning and thought it was raining. I looked out the window. Sunny 90 degree weather. No rain. I looked at the filter. Not only did it sound like rain, (which I wouldn't really mind) the air pump was vibrating and super loud! Sigh, Tetra whisper what-not filter. It didn't whisper very long.

Whispers are the worst. I have three 10i's, I had four. One died after a water change, one vibrates against the tank and makes a rattling sound, one is completely quiet, and the other buzzes loudly (and that's the one right next to my bed, go figure).

Long story short, never get any if you don't want to have filter induced meltdowns. All of mine came in tank kits. x.x

Ahh, okay. It's my first filter and it got good reviews on amazon. I bought because I didn't have to get the air pump separately, but I guess I'll go with something else for my 5 gallon.

I haven't had a filter I liked yet, so I can't really recommend any, but I know RussellTheShihTzu knows good internal filters and can send you a link to one.

WARNING: This is kinda a rant post. Sorta? There is a pic of Sunspot...
I put the filter in the tank. I am not happy with it. It is not compatible with my tank. Here's the pics:

See that orange thing? That, right there, is a Finagle. I Finagled it. It is really a piece of wire that I wrapped around around the 'hook' (which is really much too small) and made a working-but-finagled hook. And the plexiglass? Argh! It fit perfectly before the filter, but now... I'm going to go to petco in the next month and get.. lots of stuff. And now a new filter is on the list too. Oh well, trial and error, right? At least it works and Raspberry doesn't mind it. I did get Sunspot to flare! And he is a he, I'm pretty sure. Just have to convince my mom...

Have you considered running sponge filters? I know they don't do much for water clarity buy they're easy to set up and make excellent filters from what I've heard, and you can use one air pump and get a splitter to use it for both tanks if they're close together. .

Sunspot is definitely a he with that big beard.

Hmm, a sponge filter sounds like a good option. I can probably use the pump I already have. My tanks always seem clear so that's not really a problem, unless you mean they make the water cloudy?
I noticed Sunspot has two red dots on his beard. Raspberry has one. I wonder if it's a thing... Like, something I don't know what it is? That sounds really lame LOL
