    Hello Everyone,

    My 20g Long has been running for a week now. Ansett continues to go pale during the day when the flourescent light comes on. He gets his dark blue coloring back at night when the light is off. What should I do with him? I don't know what to do. I have two 5G tanks set up. One houses my female Kiwi and the other houses my newest boy, Braniff.

    Speaking of Braniff, here are a few pictures of his tank and him!! He looks yellow in person, with his fins being darker yellow, maybe even orange.

    Thanks for all of your help!

    Tony (and crew!)

    Also, an additional question. My female, Kiwi, has had "permanent" stress lines since I got her. They are two horizontal black lines running from her head to her tail. I have had her for a week now and I have never seen them go away. What could be causing this? What can I do to help her?

    Beautiful boy! Not sure on stress lines, maybe she is still settling or is to close to something she doesn't like... Hopefully someone else can help you out more. Thanks for the pics though, glad I saw him now. Love the tank too

    how about trying to switch your girlie to the 20g long tank and your man to the 5g tank? check the filter flow sometimes that is stressful to them...as well, new bigger tanks are something bettas need to get use to...especially if they are cup babies....your boy and his tank looks fabooooo!

    Thanks, everyone. I do like Braniff's tank! I am going to try moving Ansett to an "end unit" in the divided 20g because the light isn't as intense there (right now he is in the middle compartment). If that doesn't work ... maybe I will move Braniff into the divided tank? I don't want to put Kiwi (my female) in the divided tank because I don't want the girl with the boys. By the way, she is INCREDIBLY feisty! She is ALWAYS zooming around her tank. And when I go to feed her, she comes flying out of nowhere towards the little scooper spoon in attack mode. Wow!
