man i really like your fish ichise i have a half moon like that is just like yours right now that i bought at petco. i fell in love with it because i never find black bettas like that. i would try and snap a pic but he doesn't seem to pose well when i get close to take a picture. but i think i'm going to be buying more black bettas like this from no on, they're just so unique looking IMO

I believe bettas should be in 3-5gallons of heated and filtered water. I don't think they should be kept in those vases where ammonia can spike and temps can fluctuate quickly. Maybe I'm a snob too.

The 20G, water is cloudy because I just added flora max and they LIED when they said "minimal rinsing required"
It houses 4 female bettas, 2 clown pelcos and some apple snails


It cleared up in about 24 hours - ignore the breeder net. I need to add more plants for more coverage but I am having a hard time trying to find bushy plants that arent taller then the tank and that are not from sellers in malaysia. With the silk plants, there was ALOT more coverage and the girls didnt fight but I removed them and now they are a bit more nippy.


This is El Kabong. Sometimes I "use this as a quarentine "tank". I dont like circular tanks as it distorts the view. Its a little under 2 gallons.


One of my 10G's used to be divided 3 ways


Phinneas when I first got him in his QT storage bin.

Right now he has the above 10G all to himself as I had a nasty case of something kill off the other 2 that were in the tank



Princess Azula - she was one of the Petco babies that actually made it to adulthood


This is Ba Sing Se. I think he is blind as he swims into things and the side of the tank. He actually lived with my females for over a year (I got him very young and he was labled a female by petco. As he got older he never got more aggressive so I let him be). Since I think he has poor vision, I figured it was best to get him his own 5 gallon palace. He is a BIG boy and he looked so cramped in my 3 gallon tank. He likes to sleep on that leaf


And my Baby SLUGGLES
Its best to view his recovery pics here.
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5322860&type=3

I found him in walmart in Fairbanks, Alaska and DROVE him to NEW YORk in winter.

Few days later






He lives in his own 5G as well. Actually now most have at least 5 gallons as I lost quite a few recetnly to an unknown bug and moved everytone out of the smaller tanks into divided 10G's. Less water changes to do that way. I do want to add another female or 2 to the 20G and another 2 or 3 males and redivided the one 10G OR maybe add some cory's or something. I dont want to keep one lone betta in a 10G by itself.

dont know what FTS is but I'm guessing a picture of my tank. I'm working on getting TexasCichlid's S Repen and Blyxa portions recovered from the transit. So it's still a work in progress. Betta, 2 amanos, and 2 oto's in the topless fluval edge 6 gallon. They all seem to get along and very healthy

Marko does have some nice bettas.. I'm always envious of his black one (even though it turned white he says..)
