Just a heads up for those looking for pygmy cories locally...

Franks Aquarium has them for $20/10.

Aquastar has a few but they are in a tiny little bowl and are dark blue. WOW those bettas are gorgeous! Love the sleepy flare betta, the little pattern on the fins is very nice.

The long fins are prettier. i'm currently into my large scale, shorter plakat finnage ligher color phase at the moment

goodlooking boys are not common but they do pop up at petco and petssmart. worth having a periodic check from time to time.
Check out the petshop on Jamaica Ave. The old man usually imports longed-finned giant bettas. He said he's own a few that have gotten to 3-4 inches.

Thanks dan. He certainly has quality stock. I find the uv lighting above the bettas to be distracting as the owner obviously is trying to make them stand out. While they do make the lighter colors glow, it actually works against the darker bettas making them less attractive. If anyone is looking for exotic bettas, this definitely is the place for it and also the best prices in the area.

So where are the comic con photos?

I was at Comicon. I'm going again tomorrow! I don't have a costume, but I might mash something together last second.









^^this one is hilarious! It's for a comic and if you stand in the cell for about 29 min you get free stuff! There were identical boy twins that i missed who took off their shirts and got money thrown at them...
