    For a while I did straight raw with organs but she suddenly stopped eating liver and chicken. I got most of my info from Right now she's getting Sojos mix and raw beef/turkey and the occasional raw chicken bones that I strip of meat myself. She also likes Mother Hubbard biscuits so she's not completely raw fed. That's the only biscuit she'll eat. She's the only finicky basset on the planet.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry for the late reply.. I've been having some computer trouble. My laptop just randomly shuts off and won't let me turn it on for hours and then does it again!

    But I'm really excited.. I'm going betta shopping today! :D

    As you see on my tank picture I posted on your profile, I have my 5g on a shelf, and I also have two females in 2g jars. Today I'm going to buy a male for the big tank (I figured the males with their long tales would need more space) and I'm going to buy two 2g tanks, one on each side for each female! I wanted it to be centered and matching.. And I really don't even like putting females together either way because they are still very feisty! I'm also going to buy two real plants for each 2g, and a few real plants for the 5g and keep some fake silver, black and white plants in each one!

    thanks for the help on my thread in the Tanks & Accessories section. Your idea was great!

    I'm wondering if you could answer a question for me (if you haven't seen my most recent post)- what would I use to seal up the wire/mesh so that it doesn't rust in the water?

    Okay awesome, thanks! Any tips on how to make a mesh divider or do they sell them at common pet stores (Petco, Petsmart, Petsupermarket etc.)?

    Great! Here's a picture of my tank, minus the fish.. They're all gone and I'm down to one girl (the others were pet store rescues with bad finrot and other stuff.)

    Btw.. Are you sure I can't use the same filter if I split it? It's not that I don't believe you.. It's just my mom doesn't really like all of this fish business and she's tired of all of the pet store trips and expensive supplies.. We thought bettas would be easy.. But nonetheless, it's been more difficult than any other pet I've ever had! I just think she'd be really mad if we'd need two heaters.. But Idk.

    Thank you so much! Now that you mention it.. I do want to get into live plants. Is it okay to have fake and real plants? I have these black/white and silver fake ones I LOVE that I put in my tanks to match.. But is it okay to mix them?
