    yep, orange with kind of a lyre looking caudal. I've always liked the look of killis, but the sort of effort required to hatch them makes me nervous lol

    Yeah. I noticed that =] I wish my dp showed up - my baby betta is there and she (I'm assuming), is so cute =D

    Luckily no foul smells so far, although I do have some funky ol' slime.

    More and more I'm leaning towards the channoides as the ideal fish - pretty, docile, happy in my tank size and water parameters, only having small broods and not as difficult as some of the more crazy wilds. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!). Will they definitely be happy to share a tank with a small school of embers and pygmy corydoras? I already have the embers but I can forgo the pygmies if they would disturb the bettas. :) It looks like, if I don't go for channoides, a Jodi-Lea male splendens is the backup plan, since I've got so much mixed feedback on all the other species I've investigated.

    Will channoides also be content with just a hardscape, as long as it provides plenty of shelter? Is there any likelihood of them spawning in my setup?

    Sorry to keep bothering you, it's just that you are the big brains of wild bettas, and I want very much to get this right.

    No, you got me right, I was surprised by the cheapiness. I really hope that some channoides pass through - I'll snap them right up. I only hope they'll be happy in my Amazon tank. How much cover do they like? Should I build them a cave? At the moment I've only got two pieces of gold vine and a rock, with plenty of IAL. I'm kind of hoping the vine stays floating, because it looks really cool like that. Next step is to acquire pygmy cories.

    I just had a gander at burdigalas - pretty!

    I gave into temptation last night and bought a BN pleco (he'll winter indoors then head out to the pond during warm weather) and a trio of fundolopanchax gardnerii (two females, one male). I just cannot resist those adorable, fat, smiley faces.

    There was a set of 5 betta rutilans for sale at the aquarium meeting last night. A really beautiful set, male heavy. They sold for $40! For 5 of them!

    I'm sure you're right. I'll get some peat and continue with the IAL. Plenty of Oak around, so I'll get some, too. I'll try to emulate the pictures I see of your set-up. Can't do much about the pH. It's already the lowest of all my tanks.

    It's just confusing because he became shy over time. Was quite a personality when I first got him.

    Thank you, again, for your help.
