MONSTER pic update (lots of pics)
hey gang. been a while since ive been able to post pics of my homies, sooo here yalls go.

first, my new 5g eclipse hex. All fake plants except for one argentine sword hiding in the middle of the tank.

and of course, my obligatory betta, Major Ding Chavez :D

and this is Ding with his buddy, screwball. he was my free mystery snail that hitchhiked on some plants I bought. Here he is peeking out of his shell.

NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM (ding eating)

this is the 10g tank thats still cycling. I have NO clue whats going in it. either a betta and some cardinals or CPD/endlers.

this here is my apistogramma in my 29g sticking his nose out of my red ludwigia. he never comes out now that he killed his chicka :\

this is my red ludwigia, growing like wildfire :)

this plant is growing like CRAZY! anyone knows what it is id love to know. all I know is i moved it to the back of the tank to try to save it, and put it by the inflow of my penguin and it took off like woah!

this is winky. his real name is peter (though i think it might be a chick) and now we affectionately call him winky. hes a green severum growing out in my 29g that I saved from petsmart with a missing eyeball. i love this dude :)

this is my 10g sorority tank. fighting a wicked algae problem, so excuse the greeness.

Fantastic pics beetz, and I love your green sev ;)

thanks! hes got a sweet spot in my insides. thing is, even in nice still pictures his dorsal fin is so thin that is hard to see the shape of it. in person its just impossible lol

Nice pictures. I like your male betta's name, it gave me a good laugh. :) Your apistogramma is very pretty, sorry to hear about the female. And how many female bettas are in there? I think I counted five, but it could be my eyes messing with me, like they so commonly do.

About the plant that's taking off, I think it's a golden lloydelia, assuming I'm actually looking at the right plant. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like mine.

its the foremost plant in that picture, the one growing up the penguin filter intake tube :) but thank you! its nice to finally know what it is.

in the sorority tank there are 7 female bettas, all quite happily tucked in there

oh man it was such a sad day when she died. when they were all horned up their blue/gold combo between the both of them was just gorgeous!

Lucky guy. He didn't have to pay $3 for a mystery snail. Such a pretty specimen.
