edit: Argh. Autocorrect strikes again in the topic title. >.< Obviously it should be betta.

Okay, finally a few pictures of our fish. The first two here are of our HM beta 'Calvin'. The first shows the color he was when he came home with us. He was so pale and stressed out that he looked to be a lavender color. ( Sorry for the flipped picture. Tinypic keeps flipping it into this orientation every time I upload it. >.<)

Here he is now after relaxing a bit with his new heater and lots and lots of frozen goodness. :-)

Here is our plakat girl, 'Zilla. She is currently awaiting a better tank set up because she was a bit of a surprise but tomorrow she'll be going in a divided ten gallon. Just waiting on the silicone to cure on the divider. :-) She's a beast.

And finally our unnamed male. He was in a cup listed as a delta tail at Petco but he has some interesting coloring and fins but I'm still waiting for him to acclimate and show his 'true colors'. :-)

And now for the not beta pictures.

Here's one of our 'surprise' baby platy. I don't know which female he has come from but he is starting to lighten into a bright orange color so I am thinking he is going to end up as a orange wag but it is still too early to tell.

And a pair of our young panda platys.

There are many others as well but they were being less photogenic today. Perhaps some other time. :-)

You have some really gorgeous bettas there, Jamie! Would the unnamed fellow be considered 'big ears'? His pectoral fins looks beautiful!
The platys are cute as well. :)

The betta in the 2nd pic looked so small compared to the background! I'm in love with that one the most but all are beautiful!

Cute fishies!

I'm trying to make a clever joke about Daleks and taking care of fish but it's just not coming to me so I'll just have to say Hi, I'm a Whovian too!

Thanks everybody. :-) I was planning on posting pictures of the ten gallon divided tonight along with the acrylic divider my boyfriend made but we ran into a snafu with the pump so for now we will have to wait until we make it to the pet store to set that sucker up.

You have some really gorgeous bettas there, Jamie! Would the unnamed fellow be considered 'big ears'? His pectoral fins looks beautiful!

From what I've been researching I think he probably is what you would call a 'big ears'. I've been seeing a lot of posts on here from people saying they have found these sorts of guys at petco lately so I'm thinking that they are becoming a bit easier to locate. I wasn't so sure at first because I was afraid his pectoral fins would make it difficult for him to get about but he's been zipping about his tank with little issue. :-) He is finally learning to swim to the top of the tank at meal time too so that's helpful. lol
