    Parents and Kiddos

    Tonight as I was looking at my falx babies, I decided to try and move the two largest ones into the tank with their parents (who are now undivided and allowed to spawn if they want :P ). After I put them in, the kids were like OMG! :crazy: and just scared to death with all the space and current...

    I've got foerschi fry!

    Last night I was getting really frustrated with my foerschi dad, because it had been over 2 1/2 weeks, when he's supposed to hold from 8 - 14 days. :crazy: Anyways, decided to do a water change, hoping it might provoke a change, and when I looked in my pail, I found a kiddo!! :hyper: There...

    Only a few people know about this, as I've been keeping it quiet for fear of the previous "Letting TFF Know Jinx"... :shifty: My foerschi male is holding! He's due to release any day! :hyper: This is big news, my friends. :D They spawned early last week, I forget what day, so any time now...

    I got mad, then sad...

    This afternoon I went to a pet store I don't usually go to, because it's far and expensive. However, they had just got in a new shipment of bettas so I had to check them out. :P Then I noticed what looked like two males in the same bowl! :crazy: They were flaring and going nuts at each other, so...

    Christmas... Horse?? Tree!

    Why me! ARGH!

    I swear... wild bettas are the smartest fish I've ever seen, but yet, they're also the stupidest. I just went up to take some pictures, and found my largest falx juvie laying on the shelf next to his jar. :blink: Then he hopped off, a good 3 and a half feet to the floor, upon where I spend a...

    New, and different pair

    I have been very busy since I got these guys, but now, here they are.

    Preventative Measures? Help!

    A few nights ago I was watching my 6 gallon tank, and one of the cories was flashing. -_- I thought maybe it was just him, but then this morning my platy was rubbing on the plants leaves. :( There aren't any external signs on any of the fish, so I don't know what to do. I don't want to wait...

    Help! Strange Color Loss

    Tonight I bought a pair of guppies, and when I got them home I noticed something strange about the female. She seems to have no color at all on the left side of her face, and down into her body. She's fine on the other side. It looks sort of like the pics I've seen of NTD, but I'm praying that...
