You could always send that betta this way ;D

Kidding, he is gorgeous though. And a 40 gallon filled with nothing but teeny tiny fish is going to be spectacular!

So I know I have been slagging on updating my thread here and I am Sorry!

Today I took some of my plants out of my QT plant tank and put them in my Puffer tank. I also I have some crypts coming in the coming days from a member on here. I left some of the plants in the QT as I *might* use them to start a emersed tank to grow plants. I haven't totally made my mind up yet. So till I do the plants will stay in there.

I took out my Broad leaf Sagittaria out of the Scarlet Badis tank. It wad just barely surviving. It would put of new leaves but at the same time lose leaves. So I put it in the QT for the time being as it had more light in there which I think was some of the plants issue. I planted a crypt in its place. LoL

The ! rasbora are doing really well. They have started to color up some and are not hiding ad much. My Corys and my Scarlet Badis are also doing well.

My puffer and shrimp tank is starting to look better with the addition of the plants. Th Frogbit on the other hand doesn't seem to liking it in there and has been going through a melt or dieing off phase. Nit sure if it will make it long term in there.

My apple snails and Betta tank is doing good too.
I still have tons of snails in there through!! So as of tomorrow I am taken all of them to my local fish store! I need them/want them gone. LoL

I will see if I can get some new pics of the tanks all of them! Might also see if I can get a video as well.

Oh my goodness I love those and have been looking at them so much here lately.

What size tank do you keep him in ? I have a empty brand new 5 gallon I bought just because it was on sell and now I just cant decide what I want to put in it.

He is AWESOME, Sheila! (the fish has no name, his name is 'He' by default. As far as *I* am concerned, anyway, lol!) I'm with you. DP are one of the fish that I've been in love with for a long, long time. They make me swooooon!!!

I have a whole list of 'one day' fish, and MOST of John's are on it! At least he's sweet enough to share pics and vids with us of his amazing tanks, and all of the successes and problems he has along the way *luffs John* If there is anyone who can pass on tried and true input on these lil' cuties, it's him ^.^

Speaking of pics and vids. . . I hear there's an update brewing!!! *ish excited*

He is in a 29 gallon tank. Just him and a few Red Cherry Shrimp. I know a awful big tank for such a small fish. Well I use to have more in there. Well through mishaps and not having the right food at the time I have lost some.

I personally won't keep them in a tank less then a 10 gallon. These lil fish love to explore. They are also messy eaters. So filtration could be tricky in a tank that size for such a messy fish.
