Cal is a Blue Giant Gene HM. He is so much bigger than any of my other boys. He has a new home in a 10 gallon Planted tank. He shares this tank with 5 Ember Tetra. He hasn't met them yet since I darkened the tank before I released him. so he won't meet the neighbors until tomorrow. He was in fantastic shape when he arrived But needing to get settled in his new digs.
His tank is a MarineLand 10 gallon with an Aqueon 10 LED filter, and an Eheim 50 watt adjustable submersible heater. He has a 6 inch bubble wand in the center rear of his tank for aeration. and the tank is heavily planted to give him and his tank mates a natural safe environment. He pretty much took over as soon as he got in the tank. I noticed the ember tetras have stayed together and move as one now that he has joined them. LOL. Here are some quick shots of the tank.
He is very pretty, he'll look awesome with the tetras. I noticed he has speckling in his fins like one of my bettas; that's one of my favorite betta features especially when it's really pronounced, but I was told it usually goes away as they mature(?)
And yay for giants, I hope to get one next myself. Tank looks great, welcome home Cal!
Thank you all. He is still in the dark to destress He is eating so that's a good thing. When I feed the rest of the herd this morning I'll get a better look at him and see how he's doing with the Tetra. When I looked at the thermometer before bed I saw him resting on the sword leaves. He's getting around the tank and exploring and that's another good thing to see,
Cal is quite the Glam boy. he loves interaction with people. He loves his picture taken. (he doesn't sit still long ) He is exploring his new tank with a vengeance. He has said Hello to the Ember's and left them know he is the king of this tank . They readily agreed. LOL He likes to eat and that is the top of his to do list.
He likes to play Peak a boo. https://www.bettafish.com/attachment...1&d=1569592051
Thanks Blue. I guess it was me wanting it right now that kept me in suspense. But he sure was worth the worry.
BTW. How is the 55 gallon doing. I have been working on the basement some and it's starting to take shape. over the next year I'll have it finished. I'll put in tanks as I go and I can't wait for around Christmas when Petco and Petsmart have their $1.00 per gallon sale along with their other tanks will be up for sale at 70% off. I'm saving up for at least 10 40 gallon breeders. and I know there is a 75 gallon with my name on it.
