      Just went to buy the yellow marble plakat I posted the link to yesterday, but auction was over without a bid. Sent breeder an email anyway to see if he had matching female and if he would re-list/sell...

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      Yay! Still available and has matching female... Just sorting out price :)

  3. Moving the fry into the 4ft tank was the best thing I could have done! In just 3 days, colours have intensified and by comparing pics taken Friday, visable fin growth on my 2 hopefuls!!!

      When I woke up this morning, I was confused as to why I wasn't in the fish room. This is really getting out of hand!

      Sarah

      Aww.. I've had dreams in the past with huge nests, lots of fry.. waking up - WHERE ARE THEY?!?!

      Though my tanks are actually in my room, so I didn't need to go far. :)

  6. Not having a good day. My 16y/o cat, Sylvester is in a bad way. He is displaying the same symptoms my other elderly cat did this time last year. She had a failed liver and had to be put down. Going to the vet at 11. Wish us luck...

      Thanks guys. He's eaten his first meal in 3 days and has managed to keep it down so far... Had a couple of BIG drinks of water today, so I don't have to syringe water down his throat to keep him hydrated any more. Early days, but looks like the antibiotics are working.

      Good news, then, Shadoh. Hope he is still going well.

      No it didn't look like a salamander from memory, it was just a light yellow.

    1. shadoh

      shadoh

    2. Sarah

      Sarah

      AHHH... DID A SARAH!?!

    3. shadoh

      shadoh

  11. Set up a blogger account to sell my fish from. Now just have to find the time to photograph the fish I want to sell...

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      Hey, you should make a button of your logo. It will display the HTML code underneath it, and people can easily link to your site.

      It is super easy - I do it in like, 10mins. :)

  13. Setting up spawn tank for next spawn. Got sick of waiting for current lot to grow big enough for F2. By the time spawn tank is empty, current fry should be big enough for F2

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      That sounds nice. Interesting pairing, maybe you'll get another spawn of mixed-colours. :)

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      I will for sure, as he is a marble. They both carry DT too!!! :)

  14. Sick of waiting for my fry to grow up. Don't they come with a fast forward button or something?

      Well thats good! Keep watching them then! lol

  15. So annoyed right now. One of my boys (Eric, father of my current spawn) jumped his barrier into the barrack of my yellow HM dragon girl. Must have happened during last nights water change. Now my girls fins are shredded and I was planning on setting her up with my multi HM boy this weekend... GRR!

      I've decided to hold off and wait until the yellow dragon female has healed. I'm going to put Tara with my black orchard CT male instead...

  16. Sometimes bettas can be dumber than a box of rocks. Bubble wrap does not equal a ready made bubble nest for lazy bettas!

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      Oh!

      Guess you don't really want these fishus passing on their dumb genes anyway... which pair is this?

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      My Apache CT pair (the yellow boy and the lavender/yellow girl) They are too pretty not to try. I've ripped out the bubble wrap (eggs have been eaten) and put in a half cup. He's made a half harted attempt and blown about a dozen bubbles under there...)

    3. Sarah

      Sarah

      Oi yes, hopefully they'll get some sense!

      Sounds like it might be OK though. GOOD LUCK! :)

  17. Sooo bloody hot in the fishroom/bar, I have cooler blocks in and the fan blowing over the water to try and get the temp down below 35 deg. Just discovered a dead fish and most are looking distressed. Grrrr!

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      Sorry about the dead fish Shadoh. :(

      Hope you get get it down. Sometimes sinking the ice bricks (preferably over an air-stone) can help it get down a few degrees.

  18. Sooo quiet on here today... I guess I had better get off the computer and get a life too :)

    1. Hood

      Hood

      wow.... did you get some cool pics?

  19. The giants are coming... :)

  20. Thinking about giving the big ears pair another round in the spawn tank...

    1. DenningA.Rajit

      DenningA.Rajit

      Hey shadoh, I'm thinking of giving the big ears pair a go. First time with this pair. I was just wondering if I paired the male big ears PK with a female Halfmoon, will it produce long fin half moon or will it produce more PK HM. Just curious cos I am having problems spawning my other breeding pairs I have here.

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      Hey drajit82, you'll get all long fin because long fin is dominant. They'll all carry PK so if you breed the offspring you'll get 25% HMPK, 25% pure HM and 50% HM carrying HMPK. good luck...

  21. Thinking about hopping into one of my tanks to keep warm. ...mmm a nice even 27 deg 24/7. My bettas have no idea how well they have it :D

    1. Sarah

      Sarah

      Haha, yeah they are spoilt those Bettas!

      If my axolotl tank was heated, I would jump in.. big enough (have nearly fallen in numerous times). Alas, it is only 12*C.

  22. Trying to decide my next spawn. Either red dragon VT pair or my Black CT male x Black/green HM female...

    1. Yanagi

      Yanagi

      Dragons always wiiiin. :)

    2. shadoh

      shadoh

      I'm conditioning both pairs. Leaning towards the dragons. Whichever pair looks more ready next week will be the ones...

    3. Sarah

      Sarah

      Dragons are also good too! Good luck!

    2. Lilly

      Lilly

      How many fish do you have now Shadoh? I've been curious... Heheh. I'm glad that marble dragon pair had red rather than yellow, that's all that saved me from leaping on them.

    3. shadoh
