My betta Shenanigans has a strange thing dangling from him. Looks like a kidney bean attaches to a string. No behavioral changes and appetite is still there. Trying to find out what it could be. 😢

Got a couple new babies, acclimated and doing well. Changed the water in my Betta container as the Banana Plant I trimmed is still rotting, so took it out all the way this time.

Fish and shrimp seem to be fine after the scare with the filter last night.

Angels seem to be hanging out in the fast flowing / outflow from the Fluval FX-5 which blows them around, so I am wondering what they are doing there...maybe want to lay eggs???

I am going to look this time and see if I can tell any change in the morning.

Also picking up some fish food and supplies tomorrow on the way to work.

Don't know. It's gone now. While trying to find out I came across a few sites saying a good parasite fighter/preventer is soaking a bettas food in juice from garlic. Anyone else hear of it?

Planning a trip to Some craft stores for some supplies. Got a couple platys ready to pop in different tanks, so I'm gonna make some makeshift breeding nets! They are both starting to "box" out I think it was. Never had platys before, nor have i ever bred fish. This will be a new adventure for me. Research!! Any advice is welcome, but pls pm me and not post here. Thanks!

A little closer shot, and a little cloudy as it has been up 10 min.

My Betta -pretty Dragonscale Chameleon Betta - Can change from this pretty Tanzanite blue to a emerald moss green when he feels like it! This is my favorite pic of him when he was about 6 months old.

Don't have a pic of the new Betta he is hiding, probably getting used to having a space to swim in and natural light.
That looks beautiful! I want to suggest you get the cover for it. I had two betta's jump out of my chi. I found it on amazon but there are other sites that sell it too.

I did a 95% water change on my 55gal tittlebat tank. It's been a very busy last 2 months so it needed a good cleaning. Going to do a cleaning on my 10g saltwater tank today and will probably clean the 35g hex freshwater community tank tomorrow.

Fluval Chi Cover:Amazon:Pet Supplies
Yes, thank you, I want to get it - have the plastic wrap for now, lol. I was hoping someone here local had it but no!

I have to order it!

I have a little bit cloudy water right now, maybe get a clarifier.

Betta's old tank had tons of plants just growing loose every where, so he's having an interesting time getting used to the wide open space.

The first night, when I walked by the tank it scared him and he darted into the side of the glass and laid there a bit stunned for awhile, seems to have recovered fine.

Feeding is hard as the water at the top is moving around so much he doesn't really care for that.

Ran out of BettaFix and need to get some more. Asking my boss to give me some more hours so that I can order some Emerald Dwarf Rasbora Danios to go in my 10g freshwater. I'm adding 5 and 2 more pristella tetras. Ill have 10 fishies in there also cleaned out my Bettas old tank, scrubbed it clean and am planning on either selling my amazon swords or putting them in my 10g. Also looking longingly at my 20gL that is waiting the be filled and stocked but can't be yet according to my parents rules.
