  1. In Latin the 'C' is always hard, so his name should technically be pronounced 'Cow-duh' He's really pretty I hope he's with you a long time Really? Hmm thats strange, because I speak Romanian, and the word for tail is Cauda, but we pronounce it "Qwa-duh" Oh, well. I'll call him Tail in Romanian anyway xD Thanks! I hope he is too.
  2. Thank you! He's really small compared to all the others at the store.. I wonder what he will look like in a month...
  3. Thank you everyone for your kind comments! Really, dragon scaling? That is neat!
  4. Thanks! Yeah he's patrolling around the tank right now. hehehe. Alright, so he has a name now! Caeruleus Cauda. " The Latin equivalent of 'blue' is Caeruleus. That's a masculine gender adjective. The adjectives 'caerulea' and 'caeruleum' are the feminine and neuter gender equivalents, respectively. The Latin adjective is used in terms of the blueness of salt and fresh waters, skies, and other blue-colored objects. " " A tail in Latin is cauda. " I call him Cauda for short (Qwa-duh)
  5. LOL I would, but I have no more space for tanks in my room. I have a 20 gal, 10 gal and this 3 gal. If I had anymore fish I think my parents would go crazy! xD I love bettas, If I had the choise, I would go and buy all of them and give them all lovely separate tanks. I saw a perfect 5 gallon tank at goodwill today and wanted to buy it but didnt because I have no where to put it.
  6. Thanks! Yes there was one halfmoon there, it was very pretty as well!
  7. So as some of you know, I've been wanting a Betta fish for a while now. I've had my baby guppies in a 3 gallon eclipse tank and they finally grew to a big enough size so I knew their mommies wouldn't eat them. After getting a few Java ferns for each tank, I decided I would soon get a Betta. Today afterschool my friend and I went to pet*smart just to look around. It's not that far away, about a 30 minute walk from where I live, so we decided to go look around the other stores there as well. When I looked at the Betta section, I fell in love with him. My friend bought him for me! I'm so happy! I told my friend that he can name him, so I'm waiting for him to decide on a name.
  8. At pets*mart, they keep all male and female bettas seperated in cups, while at another LFS, they keep females in a tank together...
  9. That's so cool! I seriously love goldfish! All my friends think they are boring.
  10. Wow that is interesting about the cup thing! Shows how smart they are! I've noticed that too, if I'm sitting in my computer chair and turn around so I can face my goldfish, they don't react. If I move around a bit , they go nuts!
  11. I was just wondering if anyone knew how well a goldfish can see, given that they are healthy goldfish with no problems, or no wen to cover their eyes. Do they see in color? Is it blurry? Can they see things from a distance?
  12. What is that floating plant you have called? I need to get some. xD
  13. Wow! Your fish is simply adorable! Reminds me of a bald newborn human baby for some reason... o_ o
  14. Wow! It looks so nice! I wish my ten gallon with guppies looked like that... I only have one real plant in there right now.
  15. So yesterday I went to a pretty big pet store called Pj's Pet Center and I just went in there so I could compare prices with Pets*Mart... they had a wider variety of fish, but the accessories were so overpriced compared to Pets*mart! Anyway, after looking around for about an hour, I finally bought some java fern and left. xD There were some cute baby orandas in a tank, and one bigger 4 inch one by himself with the babies! I felt so bad for him, I hope he gets a good home soon. I can't fit anymore goldfish in my tank... so I knew that wasn't an option. I was looking at the bettas they have there, and I still think that pets*mart had nicer looking ones! So strange! Also, there was a gerbil with BABIES! Made me want a rodent again, like when I was 10 and had a hamster. Those guys are so cute! (but so smelly)
  16. Hmm alright, I'll feed him the brine shrimp and pellets for now then. I made gel food for my goldfish but I'm guessing betta fish should have different ingredients.. I'll make some later on though! Thanks for your help everyone!
  17. Hmm, alright! Oh, I have another question for Bettas. Are there certain foods that I SHOULDN'T feed my bettas? Like certain veggies? Do they really need veggies in their diet?
  18. I hope he reincarnates into another beautiful creature. RIP!
  19. Thanks! I put one baby in a few days ago and he's still living there, there are enough plants for him to hide in, so it's fine! xD I think he is a bit too big for them to eat anyway.. Also, the ones in the eclipse looked very clear a few days ago but now they are starting to be a bit of a shiny green... (the baby in the main tank looks yellow cuz of the light) When do they start getting their colors in? Sorry for being so offtopic.
  20. Wow! That looks so nice! Your betta is really cute too!
  21. Great! How exciting! I see your avatar is a Goldeen! Hahaha, thats what my orange and white goldfish is named after!
  22. I moved them because my female guppy only had 4 babies.. (or at least thats all I found before they were eaten) so since this was the first time she gave birth, and the first time I've raised fry, I wanted to make sure they would make it. When my second female gives bith to hers, which should be any day now, I will keep them in the main tank.
  23. Aww really? I like the short stocky bodies Also, I know that Seaking is a bit growth stumped because i got him from my sister who had an overcrowded 20 gallon (two fancies including him and 3 comets) all of them died except for him, and then I took him in the 20 gallon... I've had him since april 2009 and he hasn't grown much.. Now Goldeen is his size and i've had her for about 9 or 10 months so I'm thinking maybe she will grow bigger then him because Seaking will grow slower? D:
