three of the dark body babies are now lighter brown with red fins. The biggest baby is black with blue iridescent scales on his face and back. The two that were silver are now black and white and the two that I called blonde are now almost white.
I’m pretty positive I have 4 confirmed males and 2 confirmed females the jury is still out on the last two. I could be wrong about the two I believe to be female. Setting up my betta barracks next week when the rest of my supplies come. I’m going to set up a recirculating water system that can house 32 individual containers on the one shelf I have. I might keep 25 on this system and do a second system that also holds 25. I didn’t want a huge bio load as my sump is only 20 gallons lol. I can get a bigger tub to do the sump in... still haven’t decided on that. I’ll see when I get it all set up. It’s going to be a big project for me! Fingers crossed I dont mess this up and accidentally flood my fish room haha.
test run on the set up, drainage working awesome, in... well I think I’ll need to tweak some things. I haven’t sealed Some important stuff yet just wanted to see if it worked first. Not too shabby if I do say so myself! Gonna seal the overflow and the in valves tomorrow and move it all inside Monday I hope.
The tubes are for water. I’m circulating the water in through the top and out through the back to drain down into the sump. That way I can filter and heat all the containers. We got it set up now and running. I’ll post pics tomorrow.
I tried to measure my fish for the first time today instead of eyeballing like I’ve been and holding a bright yellow measuring tape to the tank was a no no no LOL so I drew on the tank and marked it so I could catch the biggest male swimming by. Not quite 1 inch yet 😂 I think this method of measuring will work out though!
