WELCOME HOME TATSU!!!!
« on: August 06, 2010, 06:30:04 PM »

I finally got my long awaited Betta today Smiley He is lovely iridescent green with red fins ... he even is iridescent purple in some light Smiley ( I found this out on the drive home lol)

He is acting great other than glaring at Bubbles and Spaz lol  

This is him in his temporary home Smiley

PS the pictures don't do him justice at all

Please comment Smiley

Welcome TATSU to our big fish family Cheesy
Elli he is gorgeous and I just can imagine his beautiful colours.
I know how it is, taking pics of Barbarossa, they never show his real beauty Wink
Your tank is beautiful.

Do Bubbles and Spaz glare at him too?  Grin

Sure you love him, we all love our fishies, hey Grin
I think your tank you keep him in is MUUUUUUUUUUUCH better than many others I've seen before.
If you give him a few real plants in time to come, do your regular waterchanges and keep the water chemistry right he'll be a happy fish.
Our Barbarossa lately started to come to me when I open the lid to feed him. He's sitting there at the water surface and waiting for his betta-granules. I now give one at the time for him to eat, when he gulped it the next one... but no more than 6 per feed.
Then I feed the neons and the corys  Wink (as you know they are all in one tank)

Our goldies always create a feeding frenzy, especially when I soak their food in "Garlic Guard" LOL they love that garlic scent, haha

BTW, when you've got a bit more time to spend at your PC, have a read through all those different posts here in "Pictures and Videos" you'll see all different set ups and sizes of tanks.

They do, they always seem to be hungry, but this is a good sign. In my goldfish book I read the following:
A  SLIGHTLY  HUNGRY  GOLDFISH  IS  A  HEALTHY  GOLDFISH

Elli: I would advice you NOT to add anything more into that tank. It will just be taking up space, and space is always better the more there is of it. Besides, "toys" are just destroying the impression of a beautiful, natural environment. Other than that, the tank is just fine for a betta!

I would put a nice real plant in it instead of only a fake one.

Ah I see, let's hope they will find some loving and caring parents,  Wink... just such a shame that you are not allowed to have the 40g yet. I am sure they would have given you so much love and joy back, those two little buddies.

But it is time now to look forward, keep them in loving memory, start with your college. For this I wish you joy, strenght and success, focus on your biology so eventually you'll be properly set for your life and then enjoy the aquatic hobby more and more  Wink

Wow, he is so pretty! I have a betta as well, but I haven't named him yet. He often comes up and I hand-feed him, and he curls around my hand.

Having more colour is a very good sign for healthy fish Cheesy He looks very very normal.

Our Barbarossa now comes to the front and gets so excited when I feed him, I can imagine he soon will be very confident with my hand too, lol Grin
