    We ADORE the three baby bettas and the four abn's. As I thought, Shelby "claimed" the smallest. She's working on a really cute name for him. There's no telling what she'll come up with.

    I'm hoping to get pics of them over the next few days. I want to give them time to settle in.

    Thank you so much!!!!!!!:;hug2

    Here are some pics. The abn's are in a difficult tank for photographs. They're in the guppy tank and two of them are in the deeply planted section, so they're not cooperative, but I got pics of two of them.

    The blue/purple and the red/purple I'm pretty sure are male. I swear they tried to flare at me. it was so cute.

    No problem! Thanks for sharing the kids with me. I can already tell they have lots of personality. I'm really looking forward to watching them grow up.

    Yes, you definitely need a video of the stand all set up. We'd love to see it!

    Shawnie's the video queen. Although you were an honorable mention during last nights "Malawi Tank Seaweed" escapade. The babies you gave us are as brazen as the adults;D We love them.

    Thanks MM! I can see why you enjoy breeding so much. I've never seen betta babies this small before in real life. I'll leave the breeding to you experts, but mercy, they're such cute little things. We're really looking forward to watching them grow up.

    The red/purple betta and the little cambo female are close enough where we can see the size difference between them and Firecracker. Wow, what a difference. They loved their little bloodworms tonight, too. Everyone ate and ate well;D

    UPDATE:

    We have their names. The Cambo fem is named Lily, the blue/purple boy is named Pistol, and the blue/purple boys is named Angel.

    We think Pistol taught Firecracker (our betta we brought home last July) to flare. Firecracker has never flared at me until last night. Nawty little bettas, but we ADORE them.
