Beautiful tank but you are going to need a whole lot more plants for those girls. You have to actually break the view line of seeing others. It needs to be like a jungle. My avatar is my sorority tank. I had lot and lots of plants and caves. They will fight for territorial rights so be prepared. Good luck!View attachment 93414 So here is the tank, 123litre Fluval flex. Plants are growing in well, swapped out a large rock for more plants so that there will be more cover for the girls. The current inhabitants will be moved to a separate tank once the Betta's arrive. Return from the filter pump is angled at the surface at the moment, but will be putting foam rolls on to act as baffles so the water movement isnt to great. I have picked out 13 female betta's (pretty much all candy koi colourings) that will be being shipped from Thailand on the 15th Sept. Is there anything else I should do to prepare for their arrival? Any meds I should have so that I have treatments in place in case of problems? Also in terms of feeding, Im going to mainly be feeding frozen food which comes in the little ice cube like blocks. As I want to be careful of over feeding as I understand they are prone to over eating can I defrost a block in a small bowl of water and keep that in the fridge for 2-3 days and just suck up what I need each feed with a baster?
I fed New Life Spectrum betta food and Omega One micro pellet food. I fed the blood worms a few times a week. I have been told that the highest risk is in the bloodworms. Perhaps feed the frozen brine shrimp instead. @Colin T explained options to me. What were some others, @Colin[U] [/U]T?Oh no Deanasue, thats terrible. I don't think I have any other option that frozen food though, is there a prepared food that meets their dietary requirements?
Thanks for the tip re the plants, most of these are doubling in size each week so I'm hoping that by the time my fish arrive in 3 weeks the plants will have taken over more, if not I will nip out and grab a couple more.
