My betta, Pi, who recently passed away. Goldfish are my thing but a friend of mine needed to find a home for her betta and that is how I ended up with the wee little one!

So many little baby goldies! I love it!

This was my adult ranchu, Waffles He was larger than my hand. I loved him very much and he was such a sweetie. He passed away this year :( He had a stroke, it was really sad. I had him for 3 years, but he was already an adult when I got him. I am not sure how old he was.

My favorite ranchu are the sakura like my Waffles. Gezz I miss him :swoon:

Mine passed away sometime early this morning. I will get another one soon, just need to clean the tank before adding a new one. Got this one in March 2018. A few months shy of 2 years.

I've had several over the years but haven't had any in a long time. Mordecai was my last one back around 2009. He was a crown tail and very avid bubble blower and leaf sleeper :lol:

No almond leave, not sure where to get. He has a few mods balls in there tho.
@Love My Zons Oh My! What a beauty! :xflove:
Thank you, he's not a light colored Koi but he has a light head. He's blue and red mostly. He needed a home though :)

indian almond leaves also know as cattapa leaves are good for betta fish they release tannins and other chemicals which is a natural antiseptic and lowers the ph of the water, it has been used since decades by asian fish breeders and is great to make the water bettas friendly :starshower1: you can actually find good dealson amazon ;) healthy water, healthy betta !
if it is too hard for you to order the actual leaves, know that most fish/aquarium stores sell tea solution and indian almond leaves liquid extract in bottles :bliss:
