so sorry about Osiris :(, hopefully the bushel of babies look like little clones.
So I guess this happens a lot while breeding huh? On Matt's spawns the parents seemed to die often.

Yeah, I guess so. I'm sure it depends on ages and such. Osiris came from Thailand a year ago so he was about a year and a half, that's a little less than average for Thailand bettas as far as I know.

I'm very sorry to hear about Osiris. Hopefully they're be some nice looking sons out of his spawn.

You know, some days I really hate this hobby.

I found a single Hydra in my fry tank today. Thankfully all I see is one but it's already stung one of the fry who was sort of trying to move but couldn't really control himself well. DAMNIT. I don't even know where they might have come from! Nothing new has been added to the tank, the plants that are in there have been in there for a month now and came from my other tanks, literally nothing new has been introduced except for my moon tunnel thingy from walmart which I should probably take out the decor in there that I used for Silhouette to hide in. Literally nothing, I am absolutely ticked off at this.

When I first saw it I had no idea what it was but somehow I just knew, I knew it had to be Hydra. I'd never looked up pictures before but knew about it from people's accounts, I knew it wasn't any normal planaria, copepod or amphipod. It looks like a tiny anemone and I'm just so mad at this.

Dispite this, the fry seem to be doing well other than that poor paralyzed one. I don't know if the effects ever wear off from a sting but I'll let him do his thing unless someone tells me otherwise or if I find more info about it online.

I may have some fry pics, I've got to look at what my camera has though.


UGGGG.

Okay, I guess having Hydra isn't THAT bad but it was still very disturbing to see and with my recent deaths of fish, it was just unnerving and frustrating.

Here's the little devil, I was able to suck it out with the water change, I just hope not to find more he could have come from oak leaves I suppose but I guess they hang out more on fine leaved plants and there are water sprite babies in there which means I probably have Hydra in my other tanks too....sigh.



This was the fry that was stung, he did end up dying so I took him out.


Well they're big enough that my camera, as sucky as it is, can pick up on them at least! They are officially a week and two days old.


And yes, I do have lots of algae in the tank because it's in the window practically, it only gets direct morning sun ~9:00 am so it's not an issue for heating. But the snails like to eat it and I think it's helping to keep my water quality decent so I'm relatively fine with it. However, I think I'll block the far end so I don't get SO much algae at least.



Snail! lol

Well good news is I haven't seen any more hydra. I've only had one other dead fry that I've seen at least but both of my Ramshorn snails died which was strange. I stink at keeping snails alive anyway so I'm not going to bother putting more in, the fry do a good enough job eating all the worms I give them anyway so I don't think it will be too much of an issue.

Tomorrow they are two weeks old!!

They're getting their tails in already, it's amazing how quick they can grow up!

I'm exhausted from Band Camp all this week so I don't know if I'll be able to get more pictures in or not but I'll try tonight if we're not held up until 9 at night. Yesterday we got out wicked early at 7:40, we were all shocked lol. But we're smaller in size, last year we were a 135 members, this year I think we're only a 110 or 115 something like that. But we sound good, so far so good with teaching the newbies all the moves and stuff. Anyway, sorry to go off track but that's why I haven't been posting too much this week, next week is first week of college so I doubt I'll have any good pictures for a while but I'll try to pop in when I'm not busy to let you all know what's going on!!

Oh and I put in my sponge filter last night to keep the water circulated and the tank cycled since it came from my cycled 20

Sweet! What instrument do you play? I played the sax for 8 years all through middle and high school I've been playing the bass now for 4 years. I remember band camp. Used to hate it. (It gets way too hot out here to be marching all day)

Nice! Yeah I play Tenor! I've played a million instruments through middle school and high school though, started on flute, went to trumpet when it was needed, then Alto, then baritone horn and then finally Tenor lol. I've been playing Tenor through the five years of college here and yes, Band Camp is horribly hot. Today it's wicked humid out and I'm actually very thankful that I have to work in the morning, then I join everyone for lunch at 12, and then we do sectionals indoors from 1-4, then dinner 5-6 and outdoors again for drill 6-9 which isn't too bad once that sun goes down.

This summer has been wicked cool as far as temperatures go but of course, that wasn't going to hold out for Band camp, we don't have that kind of luck XD And apparently our Football team REALLY sucks this year, we've sucked in the past but this year takes the cake--but who care's about football? The band ALWAYS wins! haha XD
