  1. http://youtu.be/Md-xr5sp0so messing aroundwith some new fx the girls are doing fine
  2. Last night I managed to take a few nice photos of some of the fish in the community/sorority. Most of them are of the bettas since they were surprisingly cooperative and very curious about my camera. Holding still a lot too so I could get some nice photos without flash. I want to apologize in advance for my radioactive plants. My camera really is having a hard time with all the green The pleco wants a hug Cid being not very cooperative this time The rainbow girl's body colored up a lot. She was much more white when I got her, now she is half blue The pearl one is so pretty. I love how depending on the angle and the light, her fins have this icy pink or blue coloring The yellow girl has become quite a feisty one I love the shading on this girl. Camera flash usually washes it all out. Is it just me or are Sucky Fishie and the neon "exchanging looks" Yellow and Pearl were having a dance-off Go home, Oto, you're drunk. You're not a Cory! I love how this piece of wood looks. This one looks like such a snob I love the blue "tear drop" The vals are really taking off. Look at that root system! Some of the cabomba and anacharis that got knocked loose by Sucky Fishie decided to plant itself among the vals.
  3. After a month of quarantine, the six girls moved into the community tank today and I am actually very pleased with how well behaved they are so far. I have witnessed only one (rather harmless) fight so far, everything else was just flaring, posing and threatening. The other members of the community are helping keeping them under control. They keep checking the girls out which distracts them from each other, and the one fight that I mentioned above was actually started with a bloodfin tetra that decided to pick on one of the smaller girls while she and another one had a competition in flaring. First they fought him off and then they fought each other for about 30 seconds before going separate ways They seem to have slight trouble with the filters since they probably never experienced any. My smallest, yellow girl got herself stuck to the Penguin intake within 15 minutes. I covered the intake with stocking and now everything is fine. The whisper EX filter, although stronger in rate, is not a problem since the intake basket is much larger than the one on the Penguin, and so the suction isn't as bad. Anyway, here a few pics. Some of the fish you guys do not even know yet, so I'll be commenting a lot of these photos The "rainbow" colored girl can finally show off her full beauty. Her body got a lot more blue during QT. To the right my mother-of-pearl colored new girl. I was originally looking for a deep red one when I saw this little beauty. The rainbow and the mother-of-pearl pick on each other the most, but so far without violence. In the foreground my blue girl and a olive/red girl that I still need to introduce. Mother of pearl and the yellow baby. I hadn't realized just HOW small the yellow girl is. She is quite docile so far. Teal and olive/red posing in the floating jungle The platy boys were very interested in the betta girls. This is my only "normal" girl, all the others are crown tails. She too is rather peaceful. To the right is my olive/red girl. When she does not have stress stripes, her body is a greenish-brown olive with burgundy fins. On the fin base and along her back she has a beautiful pale purple shimmer when the light hits her right The teal girl kept flaring at all the plants at first, in particular my dwarf lily. This is the third fish you guys do not know yet. Little yellow girl checking out the tank, while Cid is being suspicious of these new crazy chicks in his tank LOL This photo shows the pale purple shimmer on olive/red girl to the right. Rainbow is not amused. This here I loved. They remembered quickly that I am the one with the food. They came up to the feeding hole soon after I stood up. General feeding frenzy
  4. Ok, just to show off the girls currently in QT. I have lost one of the females from the previous topic (the brown/purple/red-ish one) due to being overly sensitive to salt. But as of now, these six will be sharing a tank: Fingers crossed that the QT for all of these is uneventful
  5. I can't find much info on this. I know a "normal" sorority in a 20g tank needs 5-6 females. But what if it is a well planted 55g with non-betta tank mates? How many females are needed? I currently got 4 in QT and wonder if I should get more now? I would kind of like to NOT, but to wait until I see a couple females that really strike me time in the future. This tank has peppered cories, otos, black neons, bloodfin tetras, a pleco, an angelfish and two platies. Aside from the platies (marigold and orange tuxedo) none of them is very colorful. My thought is that with the size of the tank (almost 3 times "your average" sorority tank), lots of plants (you saw my cabomba wonder topic, right?) and non-betta tank mates as distraction, four should be fine... or not? I just want an honest and sincere answer. If more than four will be better, I will just go out and get a couple at the LFS tomorrow. Also, don't get me wrong: If it will make the "community" "easier" with more than four right now, I am absolutely willing to get some more tomorrow, even if I'd love to wait for "that special" fish in the future. The well being of these girls and the community inhabitants means more to me than me wanting a certain color fish.
  6. Just a few quick pics of my newly acquired girls. These three plus the multicolored girl, and I want to get one more. Probably a blue one, if I see a nice looking one Currently they are all in QT. The red one "worries" me a bit as she bottom sits and clamps a bit. Hopefully she will perk up soon! The first two were in cups with cracks. You can see it with the red girl; the big crack on the left side with a couple drops of water seeping out. The second one (no idea what color that is) was literally in 1" of water because her cup was slowly draining out through a small crack at the very bottom of the cup The yellow crown tail is smaller than the two "regular" females. She is about the same size as the multicolored girl. And as a reminder, the still unnamed girl that I got like... 10 days? ago. Even though she looks like a baby, she was laying a ton of eggs yesterday They will look so neat "together"
