Oh wow! I love the pastel colors :) I used to own a lot of bettas, and my favorite thing is to watch them flare to their own reflection and to other bettas next tank :) their display is just really beautiful.. Unfortunately there's one purple plakat betta that I owned which really likes to jump to other tanks and pick a fight with the other fish D:

Yeah, they definitely need dividers right up to the lid! They can sure be feisty. :) Thank you!

I didn't cover my tank because I lost the cover.. ^^; I had a tank, I used wire to divide them into 4, and covered the wire mesh with fleece.. (it wasn't perfect though... sometimes they can still see each other a little from the edges... I strive to put 4 of them in the tank so that they can all get the filtration system... I tinkered with the filter, and I put a tube in it, and I branched the tube into 3.. so one quarter gets to be filtered by the original input pipe, and the others from the plastic tubes... it worked.. I can move the tubes around so that they suck the wastes and uneaten food in.. ^^

You're welcome!

Beautiful and touching :) Poor dear heart, I lost my first goldfish last year :( I know how she feels...

How did you create the background? The more I learn about watercolors, the more intrigued I am :D

The texture is done with salt (rock salt) and rubbing alcohol, over a wash of two colors. :)

They do now! Stormphyre (one of the mods) started it. There should be one a month if interest stays up. Mine was the first one in. XD UB <3

[link] UB Artwork Showcase and Sales. I'm very excited, and hope lots of people participate. I love art exchanges, they are a great way to practice for me, because they give me a deadline and and ideas.
