I'm well, Merlin is happy- it turns out he is the Betta with the biggest flare that I have! Peach and winter are well too. also, I'm not sure if you know, but I got a new little female, Pi. She has some minor fin rot (she already had it when I got her) but it is only a little bit and I'm starting treatment tomorrow, so I'm sure she will heal up fairly quickly. to see a picture of Pi, check out my album: "my Bettas"
I'm glad to hear that you are well, and I wish you, your fish, gecko and little fuzz ball a good day!
Merry Christmas!! you're a great fish keeper, one of the best. thank you for all of your wonderful advice that you gave me for Merlin when I was a new member, he's doing great, all healed up and flaring like crazy. :)
