Fish Tails

NOTE: Unless specified otherwise, NO WORK is my own. Occasionally I post photos of my own fish and tanks, but mostly it's work I find interesting.
This blog is dedicated all to our aquatic friends.
I have a certain love for bettas, so expect to see them make quite a few appearances.

This tank needs redone. 

But I have made a decision! Because of having to take Peepis to the vet, I no longer have the funds to buy a new 20gal and set it up. So I’m switching the newt to this 10 (which will be moved to my room, the living room gets too hot) and his 20 will house Jacknife the betta and Dyson the bristlenose pleco.

Okay guys so like, after that last post about Errol’s fins getting longer and frillier, I was like “lemme go back and check to see how much frillier they really got” and HOLY CRAP I guess I haven’t looked at older pictures of him in a while because LOOK HOW DIFFERENT HE LOOKS. The top is when I first got him; the other is yesterday. THIS WAS ONLY LIKE TWO MONTHS AGO.

Idk if it was just that he was still really young when I got him and this is him just becoming an adult, or if it’s because of care, or both, but goddamn.

These came out much, much better. And I made the process a bit more streamlined so it doesn’t take over an hour and a half to get one betta finished. :) #handmade #polymerclay #miniatures #fish #betta #wip #tampacomiccon

You can’t imagine how long it took to take these pictures!

These photos are really bad but I just wanted to show what abuse when young can do to a bettas body.

The top is Play Dough, my PK boy I got at around 6 months from work and I’ve had him for a year. I’ve taken good care of him, and varied his diet a lot, more so than my other boys (when he was younger he caught and ate a good amount of fruit flies). His body is full, muscular, firm, and his fins are great.

Below we have Bucket, my rescue from one of the nastiest betta bowls I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to see in this photo but his body is shaped more like a ball on a stick, he has very small muscles and his fins are kinda melted together after he recovered from fin melt/saprolegnia. You can clearly see his swim bladder further down on his body.

I’ve had bucket for about 9 months. They are both in the same divided 10gal being given the same diet and care. But Play Dough is in much better shape!

Neglecting a betta has life long effects on them.

My 30G fry grow out tank: replicate nature as closely as possible is my goal. When fry are about 1/2” long I can more safely change water and it will get lighter. But the water Quality in there is fine!

Too often we do things that please People to look at but are no good really for the fishes.

The week-old fry are in here somewhere!! Once in a while I spot one. :)

My 20 gallon sorority betta tank, 5.5 gallon betta tank, and my 75 gallon community tank. All are low tech tropical setups.

Nocturne and his tank

Note: He has a heater, we took it out to adjust placement when we took the pic

A tree made of Hemianthus Callitrichoides ‘Cuba’, aka HC— probably the best tank from the 2014 Interzoo, held last week in Nurenberg, Germany
