    Anubis is sick! HELP!

    Thanks Brad Anubis went to sleep and won't be waking up It just happened so quick! He was fine this morning when I left. The other boys have been floating in bags in another tank while i scrub and boil the rest of the tank - rocks, ornaments, etc. I'll leave the boys in fresh un-medicated water for the next week and keep a close eye on them.

    Anubis is sick! HELP!

    Thanks sweet, thats kinda what I was thinking >< I will have to remove my apple snails as I was told they don't like meds.
  3. I have no idea whats wrong with home but I got home tonight to find him like this I took him straight out of the tank and quarantined him as he is in a split tank of 3 boys ( they have plastic grid between them). The tank is about to be completely cleaned and sterilised. I'm nearly crying as he is my first Betta and I think he's to far gone to save. Any ideas so I can either save him or euthanise him? (by the way how do I do this???) If I know what to look out for hopefully I can save my other two boys.
  4. kk thanks for the tip Bettarazzi. Will inform the hubby
  5. As mentioned in the spawn talk section, my bettas don't want to get it on. I wake this morning to my hubbies mystery snail laying eggs!!! It's so typical! When you try nothing happens and when you don't it does!!!! Actually reminds me of when I got pregnant with my first son......... lol
  6. I'm by no means an expert but I personally think another stone would crowd the look. I think it's lovely the way it is. Just my opinion *lol*
  7. Is it just me or does she look ready to pop? lol Beautiful fish! You lucky thing I'm a tad green *lol*
  8. Thanks for the thoughts guys. I agree Lilli something must have been wrong and I don't want them becoming the 'old married couple'. I'll give them a week apart then try them again. If that doesn't work then maybe she doesn't think he's pretty enough Poor Osiris will get a hit to the ego lol
  9. Thanks Lilli I have read heaps about breeding them, most of it conflicting. I fed her the same as Osiris (blood worms, brine shrimp and pellets) for about a week. She went a beautiful dark blue/black colour with some great vertical strips and she was very fat. I floated her in a cut off bottle so they could see each other for about a day and she was floating head down. There's not heaps of cover but there is a stone 'cave' and couple plants you can't see. Some things I've read say don't put any form of cover where others say heaps of cover so was just trying it. Osiris did have a piece of bubble wrap but he built his nest on the other side of the tank so I took it out. I think I'll leave him in there but take her out for a week or so like you said and then try again. Thanks for the site will be going there to have a read :)
  10. I have had Osiris and Nefertiti in my spawn tank for nearly a week now and Osiris has built a huge bubble nest. He flares at her then swims under his nest but she just sits in the corner on her own. I aged the water for 2 days, put a decaf tea bag in there and have been feeding them blood worms and brine shrimp for about a week. Are they just not ready? Any suggestions? Here are a couple of pics of Osiris' nest. You can see him in the corner of a one.
  11. It's so cute!! LOL at "borrowing" the pebbles
