Mystics' journal

Hey guys I actually decided to start a proper journal! With the move coming up and all the changes going on I figured it would help me keep track of my little finned friends! I'm going to make "meet the bettas" thread after the move when I have access to my boyfriend's lovely little camera ^^ . Right now I have 10 males and 13 females o.o 23 fish! And I'll show off my goldfish 😊 I'll also be starting a spawn log not long after!


Here goes, 8 tanks will be set up 3 divided 10gs, a 20g long, the 50g, the 35g, and a 10g guppy fry tank (if I don't decide to sell them all off). I'm not counting the 3g for my baby Betta elf and the spawn tank x.x

I also have to move feeder insect's, 5 cats ( two looking for homes btw), 3 dogs, a 1yr old and myself! This is going to be one HELL of an endeavor...

5 giant goldfish, 23 bettas, a dozen guppies, 20 bronze/albino corys and a random assortment of a few other community fish/ invertebrates.
1 adorable little frog, 5 cats, 3 dogs and a wonderful toddler aged daughter

Family fur-balls and fins <3

I've got 32oz deli cups for jarring fry that are going to double as transport containers for my Bettas^^ the community fish will likely be split between 2 or 3 five gallon buckets. The goldfish have a big metal tub we are going to use to transport them, these guys don't fit in 5 gallon buckets! I literally have to carry them out by hand or in a net to the truck -_-
I have an inverter to run air pumps where needed the hour trip has been pretty normal each time I move.



Aside from that I've been helping with the renovation! The house is over 100ys old the old add ons are already gone. In two days they were totally stripped the supports cut and frame totally torn down. This week Papa is getting rid of the foundation and starting from scratch. This entire kitchen is going to be custom ^^ mom is ECSTATIC

All the fish are doing great! I'm not sure why but I've been fantastically lucky with female Bettas and my sorority. I never really had fights and even dropping new girls in doesn't seem to cause problems. Right now I have 2 tanks with girls, my original sorority, and my 5 new girls in qt.

I thought I hurt little elf last night I had to clean the mesh breeding net and he was freaking out... He's still a little stressed but acting so much better!
My green and white dragon female is marbling so much! She's mostly green and disappears in the tank because of all the plants.
I had to take some of the plants out of Mort and Mouses tanks they really don't seem to like a heavily planted tank and get depressed and sluggish

Sherlock seems to be calming down I think it's due to his qt tank being smaller than he's used to.

The renovation is coming along nicely they dug the bed for the new foundation today! Walls should be going up this weekend and in a few weeks everything on the inside will be done, I'll make. To post before and after pics when I get then ^^

So... My SO is spoiling me! I found a beautiful double Tail boy on eBay and he made me bid ^^. I really don't like doubles I think they look weird but this boy is so well proportioned, his body isn't overly thick and those fins <3 with raze not being moved from his 3g cylinder and elf getting the 3g half moon tank I have a spare section in a 10g ^^

Oh man, he's lovely. Our baby betta looks like he could be that basic color combo and pattern, I'd love it if he grew up like that!

What a good SO :D

That boy is gorgeous! He really is completely proportionate. I hope you get him!

You have a ton of bettas. Do you ever find yourself getting burnt out on them?

Very, I'm doing a " meet the Betta bunch" thread after I get moved, I need access to my SO's high quality camera ^^ my phone doesn't do justice for them


The floor is going down for the kitchen right now then the walls are going up this is getting exciting XD mom's already agreed to all the fish I want just no reptiles or pet insect's lol. I can't wait to see how this turns out!
