Tearing down my 10 soon.
5 gallon tank with 3 male endlers, 3 amano shrimp, and some little pond snails.

Hoping to get a 29 gallon for a South-Eastern Asian biotope.

I bought a betta from Petsmart on Tuesday...was actually surprised at how many nice looking ones they had at the store. Sorry for the crappy Iphone photo but this fish lives at work and I don't often take my camera to work.

One of my mental health clients named him "Crunchberry" lol

3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon

I actually have quite a few. I had more but I've recently lost one to age. I'll put him up as well 8)

? Black with blue/purple speckles double halfmoon is Poseidon.
? Green/blue with red fins is Lagoon.
? Red is Fuschia.
? The sort of brown one is Pearl. I think she's actually the same colors as Lagoon, I've caught her more colored up towards evening, but during the day she's got the stress stripes and faded colors for some reason.
? The blue crowntail is Arctica.
? Lavender double halfmoon was Prism (deceased)
? Blue and red double halfmoon is Patriot.

He's lived with them for the past several months in the EcoQube. They play together, but that's it.

heh, probably. But the shrimp are too big to eat in one gulp, so they just play. The shrimp have been known to jump on the betta's back, much to his annoyance.

I love you guys.

Finny, my red Betta left his nerita snails alone for a year and a half. A few weeks ago, I found a big MTS snail shell, empty. Within a few days,one of the Neritas died of suspicious circumstances. A few days later, found the other Neritas empty shell. It's all fun until someone gets snacky.

My old man Xerxes lounging in a folded over N. tawian leaf (his fav spot).

Hes over 2.5 years old now, lost a pectoral fin to cyst bursting (also has a cyst on his head), and has diamond eye making him 95% blind in 1 eye and 70% in the other (good eye in photo). I don't expect him to live much longer but he's still chugging along like a champ.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Considering what he has been through, he looks like a happy Betta.
