So, the parents are here!
They arrived alive, and they're now swimming around their tanks and eating nicely.
One of the sellers did, indeed, include an extra female, and I completely forgot that they said they might do that until about half an hour after I acclimated the pair. There was a little stressed, blue marble female (I think?) in there. So, she's in the hospital tank for now, partially because she's still stressed and clamped, and partially because I currently have no where else to put her. lol
Anyway, the pair's doing great. Honor (the male) is huge. Seriously, he's considerably larger than my two big pet bettas, Opalo and Mr. Gold, who I thought were large. (Poor Virtue.
) He's gorgeous, though, and he's definitely a halfmoon. Aggressive little fellow, too. I literally witnessed him flare at, attack, and eat a small snail. (Poor Virtue.
) He's also been attacking the bubbles from his airstone for several hours.
Virtue is a sweet little one too. She's extremely adorable. She has a round little face and big, dark eyes. She looks so much healthier than any females I've seen at Petco.
I also got the microworm culture. It came with a little plastic container, so I put about a cup of fresh oatmeal with some yeast in there, then mixed in the culture. I'm hoping I didn't mess up.
Anyway, here's photos! I know they're a bit blurry. They were all swimming around too fast to get good photos. I'll make them flare for some better ones tomorrow.
Here's Honor. He's not actually this pink. >.<
Here's little Virtue:
And here's the extra betta. I honestly don't know what I'll do with her. I think I'll name her Lucky, since I almost threw out the package she was in.
