Talking Some pics

Hope you enjoy! Just got a new camera and having a blast taking pics of the fish :D
My one ghost shrimp (the others disappeared but this guy has no fear!) Picking more up tomorrow





My pleco

A multi-shot of rosy red minnows

Rosy Red Minnows


Female Betta (may pick a few more of these up, she's one of my favorites) Sadly I made the mistake of keeping her with my male betta, and he beat her up pretty badly. Since moving her into the community tank she's been healing very well and her fins are coming back :)


Snails (need to get some more calcium into them. going to try tums tomorrow)



The Tank


Oh, and a neat little video of the ghost shrimp skimming the water surface for food: Freshwater Fish Tank :: 12-26-10058.mp4 video by KnECritters - Photobucket

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Well, agreed to go pick up some mollies from a guy in Nashville today. Got there and OMG he had TONS. He said he couldn't get them to stop breeding so he just gave 'em away. So I said cool I'll take some. He just kept dumping them into a bag. I have no idea how many he gave me but I know it was WAY too many and now I'm drowning in the things. Was planning on QTing them but couldn't fit them all into the ten gallon, so had to put the adults in the main tank and the babies into the ten. Ugh...anyone want some mollies that lives in Mid. TN? So, here are some pics:






This male is my favorite. I made sure he got scooped up. So so pretty





The biggest male in the tank:

Neat video of the males flashing their sails at each other. First 4min is just the big guy chasing some girls around, but if you skip to 4:10 you'll see both males showing off:


Currently have a few people that may be taking some of these off my hands. Then thinking about getting my fav male into the ten with some females (best looking ones I can pick out fin and color wise) for him to try and bring out some of his traits (the very large sail and gorgeous colors).

Nice pics and great score on the mollies.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
