Ok - george is now in his own tank. Only prob is that that the filter pictured is WAYYY too noisy so Im getting another Mozoo 150 - quite honestly from everything I have read betta's don't like too strong a current so a 150L p/h filter should be enough for a 20 L tank which holds about 18L of actual water (I dont fill to the top and considering all the rocks etc. And I syphon at least once a week.

George - I really like this pic even though it's blurry...just something about the composition!

George - still need a background for the tanks

And if you look carefully at those pics you might be able to spot Gary and Mildred

:D The boys are pretty-the set-ups are looking good.The only thing that Id worry about is finding proper lids for the tanks if you don't have any.Betta's have been known to jump-rather well. :o

It very well could be! I dont know what you consider "someone sneezing on the tank" looks like :rofl but its a good chance its an egg clutch. Do you know what kind of apple snail she is?? Is there a male in the tank with her?? If you really want to know - mabey you could take a picture to show us?? Good luck with the potential new babies, and let us know if you need a hand taking care of the eggs.

Beautiful fishys by the way!! :D

Thanks guys - koko - I despise the idea of keeping bettas in tiny little boxes - what sort of life is that for ANY animal?

Ok - I think the "sneeze" was just condensation on the side of the tank

Poor fishies - neither have a filter right now - Im waiting on a new mini filter for george and bruce's filter is making funny noises

Bruce is a lot more active now that george is around and they get a bit of time each day to flare at each other - i have a piece of paper between the tanks otherwise

George likes to sleep on top of his plant and bruce has taken to sleeping on his bit of driftwood LOL

:D Good! I feel better knowing that both have tank lids.I've heard way too many sad stories about Betta's being found on the floor. :exactly Is Bruce's filter new? I used the same kind in a few of my smaller Betta tanks before.Hopefully the pumps not going on it. :rolleyes:
