Well, Jack as I am calling my orange betta(short for Jack-O-Lantern, thank Chesherca for the idea =p), ended up in my medical tank where I have some others....so he's in a breeder. Hopefully only temporarily. He's got some light damage to his dorsal fin...it's kinda curled, looks like a break over rot or anything. I dunno, but it's just incase...
Well, this is also where my female betta sorority lives, they didn't really appreciate this...actually all but one kinda liked him. My red female got stressed, I hope she'll chill out. ^^; I figured I'd put him in there in the breeder for medicating over medicating a second tank. Either he or my other male will be in the divided 20 gallon tank later on...one or both males, or one male and the females, I haven't decided. The females like the tank they're in, so I may divide the twenty for the males and block it so they can't see eachother.
Anywho, I got some photos of him, sorry about the bad lighting and a little spot algae, my nerite snails are out of there right now, they keep that in check so I'm not scrubbing it away all the time. Bah, pain in the butt algae, but the snails wont do well with that current medication so I'll be stuck for a few weeks. LOL
Personally I thought this photo was hilarious. He actually figured out she was a female or just didn't care after this. He hasn't flared at anyone else (aside from Red, obviously), and she didn't get stressed out. lol Kinda like a "Hi there" moment and they got over it. He hasn't been flaring or stressed and ziggy. The only one upset about this is my red female. x.x Hopefully she'll get over it like the others did so I don't have to medicate a second tank. ^^; He looks pretty red in the photos, but tha's because I have one of those lights that come out kinda purpley.
Yeah, he'll be happier once he is out of the woods there and has his own place. I feel kinda bad taking him from a cup to a breeder, but he's gotta be fixed up from that petshop yuck! Even though he is from a better shop, he was still in a cup. ^^; He's orange with some blue on his tail...yup, he's a bronco betta. These photos were taken less than a minute after he was put there, right now he's actually acting better and doesn't look so...so...puppy dog eyes. c.c
Here's Big Red making an...butt of herself. lol She's the more insecure female who I initially thought would be the most aggressive. My smallest female actually holds top rank in the group and since the five have been together not one fight or flare has happened. But Red always challenges new things, including decorations of all things. LOL At the moment, she's lost her stress lines and isn't picking at him and he's ignoring her. He's liking my big blue girl though, she's full of eggs. And no, I'm not planning anything....yet.
Almost forgot to show you my big blue girl. She's very interested in him but doesn't seem aggressive after the initial meeting(which is this photo), she just hangs out int hat area...I've never had females before, so I'm still learning their behavior and signals, I can't tell if she's REALLY flirting like I thought, or if she is telling him she's boss and knows it...
I can't wait to have them all out of their medical yuck and into proper homes. They'll be so much happier. lol I'm gonna put a plant in there for him so it's less....well, I'm sure it has to be stressful. =/ But it wont last long, I hope. He doesn't seem bad off, just a damaged fin I want to be SURE doesn't get infected before I put him back in his tank.
