I know right? Gem is a beautiful dark blue with a slight red wash I might breed them at some point ^^

What kind of tail are your babies getting? Are you looking for long hm or something else?

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

Do you have any flaring pictures of him?

This is probably bad of me but I still am not entirely sure what tail type Mom Betta is. I guess a PT x DeT cross since the length of her fins are in between what you'll expect from a short finned and a long finned female and her other physical traits are somewhat of a mix. When I got her, I didn't intend for her to be breeding stock so it never occurred to me to be picky. So I am expecting long finned fry, or "in-betweener" fry, at least. They probably wouldn't have as high of ray count or extension as their dad because of mom's lesser ones also.

No I don't he's in the guppy fry tank I knew it would temper his aggression, I've never seen him actually flare o.o

I might get him to when I move and get the divided tanks set up. Imagine planted tanks with moss wall dividers, about 3g of room each ^^ Betta paradise and lots of pretty fishies for us to look at ( 9males to be exact- and 10+ females when I get my new trio) the girls are all going in a 20 long ( currently 8 in a 10g tank) I'm sorry I'm all kinds of excited 😆

I have something like that. Except moss wall divideds. I'm super bad about killing all the supposedly "easy" plants. *roll:

Hey, Blue, long time no see/talk! And thank you. How are you and your fish doing?



So, I won't see "my babies"... Gf makes fun of me for being so protective and obsessed with them I am.... For 2 weeks. Gf is taking care of them with very exact instructions. I have to fly back north. AndImightbegoingabroad. I'm excited but also very stressed about the whole thing. It has been years since I gone outside of the year (and it'll be great journal fodder because my journal is super boring rn lol). But it seems like too much to do and too many miles to travel in a very short amount of time. There's a lot of time constraints and uncertainty. Also they're finally starting to color up and grow fins and it sucks to leave them at a time when they are changing every single day.

I'm doing fine, schools coming back up, but I've been getting SUPER lazy with water changes for my goldfish tank because of this horrible heat. So unfortunately one of my goldfish is starting to develop dropsy Ugh! I hate myself for doing this! My Betta is fine, he's with 2 Endlers(?) I'm planning to plant his tank very soon though! It's VERY vague.

Goldfish can be fastedor a long time, do your water changes! If you're like me you will cry your eyes if you accidentally kill them :( do you have a qt tank? ( I need to designate a 20g hard sided tote as qt for my big goldies) I skimp a little on refilling my tanks so I guess can't lecture too much

Glad you're doing fine. Sorry about your goldie though! I definitely know how it is, I get so lazy sometimes too. But a lot of it is me stressing myself out and ending up in a rut. :/ I think best you can is get him in a methylene blue bath and some kanaplex and keep his water extremely clean and see if he bounces back. I really hope he does!

I totally understand how you feel! I get stressed all the time with balancing out errands, meetings, and some free time for the fish.

Any recommendations where to purchase Methylene Blue online? Or do you think a chain store would have something like that? Same goes for Kanaplex.

Thanks so much Feng!

Yea, it can be horribly difficult when you have a full schedule. But just gotta breathe. And try to relax and give yourself a break sometimes because burn out sucks.

Amazon. I think it has the best deal on Methylene Blue online. I got a 2 pack for roughly how much I paid for one at another vendor. Kanaplex, I get through Foster&Smith (sp.?), Ebay, or Aquabid (there's a vendor that sells kanamycin in different amounts.
