    Sometimes I think Sparky was a Luchador in a past life.

    After nearly 4 months, dopey little Sparky finally went into his terracotta pot! Now if I can only get a picture!

    That lavender monster in your avatar is a giant?!? From Petco? Nice score, especially as he's so active. Always fun. Just checked his pics. A copper! How cool.

    You talking to yourself on your front page here? Or just your version of a log?

    Do you like listening to Car Talk on NPR? Do you like fish? You could try the old Pet Fish Talk radio show. It's a little like Car Talk for fish. It's hosted by Tom & Nevin Bailey. They are old school fish wholesalers and breeders. The show was interactive. I say "was" because they stopped doing the show back in 2011. But the archived shows are available for download at There is a lot of good information (and a little bad) on there and the subject of bettas will pop up from time to time. The show has really helped me in being able to identify all the various kinds of fish available to the hobby. Be sure to check out the listening guide for each show. It's worth a listen if you have time to kill.

    When people ask me what I do at work, my answer always is "killing time between weekends". Podcasts are a big help!

    I like listening to podcasts while I'm at work. One of my favorites is the Aquarimax podcast. Hosted by Russ & Kelly Wilson, It can be found on itunes or on their website at While it really isn't betta-centric, it's loaded with valuable information, especially pertaining to live foods. It's also interactive, they answer questions from the listeners. It's short, most episodes are about 20 minutes long and it is very well produced. Give it a listen, I think you will enjoy it.

    I'm going crazy planning Thanksgiving dinner. Does anybody have any idea how many cans of turkey I'll need to feed 12 people?

    Happy Thanksgiving!
