So I was watching her and thinking what the hey, she's skinnier!

And then she shows up on the driftwood and I realize I have 2 berried ladies now!

Holy moley!

I haven't seen either of the first two, but I have seen yet another!

Three?!?

Unless the first two had bad molts and I didn't see...

Thanks for your reassuring words.

I was counting today and saw 9 out of 18 adults, and 1 of 2 Amanos.

How are your tanks doing? Any storm worries for you?

Tanks are good but I lost a kuhli loach I think she may have been egg bound.
We are only getting a bit of the storm but strong winds and lots of rain! Yuck

Poor kuhli! Swim in peace under the rainbow bridge.

The first female betta that my parents got back in...2003 eventually got eggbound in 2007. She was a wonderfully intelligent, peaceful fish. Very inquisitive.
