    Don't blame Lord Grantham. He was just doing what come natural to him and protecting his territory, of he thought he was anyway. Of course if Mr. Fish had managed to get at Mani my feeling might be different.

    It's going to be a juggleing job for me when it comes time to put all my boys in divided tanks. I have 13/14 (1 petco baby hasn't finished growing, but I think boy) to divide. Some flare at any other male they see, but I have a few that for what ever reason has taken an intense dislike to another male just by site. Such as Thor, he doesn't flare, not even for the ladies most time, but if he sees my daughters VT, Luv, he flips out. Flares like there's no tomorrow and is all over the place. If he could I think he'd jump from one bowl to the next to get Luv he would in a heart beat.

    Good luck finishing up dividing your tanks. I'm sure no one will get through again with how you are going to make them.

    Wow. I didn't think bettas were big diggers but I guess where there's a will there's a way. Unfortunately Starbuck passed away a couple days ago. I haven't posted about it yet. Poor little guy was hanging in there but then I came home one day to find him dead. :(
    He had bruising on his body that hadn't been present before so I'm thinking he probably had some internal injuries. I feel so terrible about it but all I can do is make sure it will never happen again. I'm fixing all my dividers so that they reach the bottom of the tank (tying on an extra bit of divider to the bottom), and never putting lord Grantham (the killer) in a divided tank again. I'm still mad at him which I know is silly because he is just being who he is. He is an awesome fish and very friendly to me. I rescued him from the brink of death (he was motionless at the bottom of his cup in petland) and he's really bonded to me. Anyway, thanks for asking about Starbuck. Wish I had better news.

    Hey! I thought you might like to know that you are not alone. I caught my VT, Mr. Fish trying to dig through the sand and under the divider after I put him in a divided tank with Mani!

    How's Starbucks?

    That's good that they try. I'm not dating anyone at the moment, but most of my bfs have been either into animals as much as I am, or they at least humored me lol. Starbuck is still hanging in there. He is lying with his face on the bottom in a vertical position, which looks very tragic, but I think it's the only way he can sleep because he doesn't have his proper balance without finage. He can swim around but it must be really hard. It reminds me of when I was on a swim team and we'd sometimes have to swim with our feet and hands tied together. (feet to feet tied, hand to and tied, not all four tied together! But I'm sure you get the gist of what I'm saying).
    Your new bettas are very pretty! And Pan is quite the handsome BOY!

    So glad to hear is he's doing good! No, they really don't understand. I have to give my kid & fiance credit that they try. I sat at home today waiting for betta that were shipped Tuesday and sent Brad (fiance) to 2 different pet stores to get me stuff.

    Some of my classmates (Masters) found Wordsworth long-winded but I love him and of course Blake.
