That would be cool! I myself have an $800 camera with my lens. I bet I spent over $2,000 on it all. But it's worth it!

I love receiving things in the mail for that reason. Lol!

Sweet! I'm sure those two will make lovely fry!

@Tree

INDEED, the world needs more Cerins...no pictures I take of him properly convey just how STUNNING he is.

I've been looking into wild betta hybrids as well so I can breed more wild into the line after the G1 spawn...buuuut fitting another tank right now is likely a bad idea. X'D

@Tree Betta Mahachai is the most likely to do well in my water...so I'm thinking I'll go with a mahachai mix. (Many Mahachai strains also have little to no red which is WONDERFUL.^^)

That's waaaaay in the future though...I need to focus on getting baby boy up to spawning size, and give him a pratice spawn or two. Get myself and him ready for fry.^^

Is this your first time spawning? I'd be so nervous if I was going what you're doing.

@Tree YES. X'D

I've been researching it/wanting to do it since I was like, 10 though. I wrote a paper in 5th grade about bettas. X'D

STILL, knowing and experiencing are different things...so I'm expecting to learn as I...fail. XD
I'm not even TOUCHING wilds until I know what the hey I'm doing.

Sorry for the double post! Is this ok in my own journal...?

I have found of late that it seems to cause less stress and damage to my bettas to scoop them with my hand instead of a net. I can also move faster that way. I've head of breeders in Thailand and Malaysia doing this as well, and many goldfish handlers in the US also use this method...I think I will stick with it, but I'd like everyone's thoughts.

My fish seem less afraid of my hand, and will willingly swim into it. Perhaps, because of my body heat it is warmer then then suddenly being lifted into the relatively colder air by a net...? I'm not sure.

I certainly cannot use this method with m pufferfish, but it's food for thought.

I have been hoarding small peices of driftwood that look like trees for tank purposes, and my hoard grows every larger. XD

However, wood is not all that exciting, so I wanted to post here when I had something BETTER to add to it:
I have another new fish, girl number 4 for my sorority, and she's PRECIOUS...
...but only an inch long.
She is very smol.



I'm not sure about a name for her yet, but I'm still working on it.
She was sold to me as a Platinum HMPK Female, but it looks like she needs to grow into her fins more. She's very energetic and curious despite only being added to the little quarantine area just a bit ago.^^

@Tree thanks!^^
I'll certainly do my best to help her grow!

Her breeder is from the same state as me, and seems to be new to selling their fish online. So they're very nervous and want to be updated on how she's doing. Honestly I find it wonderful that they care so much for their fish!^^
