- Hello, happy to be here. Im in the process of upgrading one of my betters tanks, and unfortunately 2 of them have swim bladder at the moment so I'm in the process of getting my Bettas healthy again. As soon as they look their best, I'll post several albums. Thanks for the kinds words
- I thank you,... it is a job that I love. Being able to be a part of their very special journey is a privilege and honor for me. Comforting the family is important as they begin their grieving long before their loved one passes.
Kind regards, Judy
- Hi thanks for the wellcome, i do have quite a bit experience in keeping betta, but its really a shame to say that, or even taking calling as a breeder lol, i do not have the right to be called breeder and experienced keeper i think,because i lack the knowledge of caring the fishes i spawned,i have advantage for being a tropical country resident,which is betta's natural environment,constant temperature all the time, i do know how to spawn the fish quite a bit,and not lacking the natural food for them i can hunt in the drains over the city. I just do not quite doing right way i think
its a happy thing to find this forum and be a member to this.i look forward to become a long member of this forum, share experience and help when i can ( which i really doubt of my ability to do it for i know now i am actually suck at this whole betta keeping and breeding lol)
Anyway thanks alot for the warm wellcome!!

Posted On: 09-21-2014, 11:08 PMAll good advice from Tolak -- as usual. Just a small detail: Prime locks ammonia into a molecule that Seachem calls ammonia/Prime complex, which is harmless to livestock. This molecule decays...Liked On: 09-21-2014, 10:48 AM
