You can see the purple thing on top of the tank, that's the hood from the 1gal with the light in it. I also have a purple folder to the right of the tank to keep my computer screen from messing with him.The heater didn't turn
I'm blogging a conversation that I've been having with several people about my delta tail betta.
His dorsal and anal fins have been becoming gradually ragged. I was monitoring him since I noticed his dorsal and anal fins, but then he started loosing large chunks of his tail fin! I dubbed the behavior as "The Game of Rip-It" based on a Yahoo answers response mentioning that they play "whip-it".
Anyway, here's the conversation and a photo of him from
Our baby ghost shrimp didn't make it. We saw some activity in the first few days, but we were supposed to see the babies by now. There is nothing.
After we had moved Luffy (the female) back into her home tank, Zoro was mating her again. Two days later, we couldn't find her at all. She either got sucked up in the tank vac or she died and got eaten by the neons...
We added java moss and hornwort into the 20 gal tank, a smaller bit of the hornwort is now in my 1 gal betta
Update: He just died. I don't know why. He was fine earlier, I watched youtube for a couple hours, I checked on him, and he's dead. Just like that. I don't even know what I did wrong. I think that I'm just not supposed to have bettas. I feel like I'm the one killing them somehow. So, I'm just going to do the humane thing and not get any more. Thanks for your help guys. I might pop in if we need to ask something about the tetra or the shrimp, but I won't be saying anything more about my own bettas.

Okay, the night before last, we took our mama shrimp out of the breeding tank. All of the eggs were gone and she had shed her skin. There was nothing on her swimmerets, so (according to other info) we moved her back home.
The babies are still too small to see with the naked eye, but we were told that they would be that way until about a week, then we would start to see them.
We got a powder-like fish food geared toward tiny babies (Hikari First Bites) and well... They
