- I would really like a pair but I don't have room for a 20gal at the moment with all the tanks that I do have. But I'm hoping I can manage to squeeze another 10gal in my room and get a pair of albimarginata.
There has been a flood of new kids on here lately. It is kind of nice to see new people are wanting to learn about bettas then what they tell you at the stores.
Thanks! He's my baby. I've had him since he was 6 months old and this year he turned 8.
- Let me try this, lol. Actually it makes perfect sense, I guess being an engineer I can see why they set it up this way.
This board is addicting, I actually am off for 5 days but I have to stop in to check out to see how Silverlilly's little guy is doing and I typically always have it open in a window at work (even though I'm busy enough that I don't always get time to read). It's still funny to see when everyone goes to bed and then the sudden hotbed as everyone wakes up.
And don't ask why I'm up at 2 am
- Thank you :) When I first started keeping bettas after moving out of my parents house I had NO ONE to offer me advice and i spent so much on time on sketchy websites that gave me contradicting info. I was so happy when I found this forum. I try to give people the advice I would have wanted - accurate, clear, and simple.
not this month :( i forgot to enter on time but I'll enter next months!
