    Aww what a bummer. But yeah try talking to your Petco manager. They're usually very good about ordering specific species and such for customers.

    Figured I should add you since you know a good deal about half-giants and plakats. Since this is my first time owning one I'd like to know more about them! :D

    Hah, just saw her sig. Yep, I recognise that. :p I loved Emmy Rossum's dress for that scene in the movie. She actually looked like a brunette Barbie.
    Wowzers, I just read Byron's think - bookmarked! What an excellent reference. It would be great if the mods would sticky it here because you are right - it should be required reading!

    Hehe, I figured, since her name was Bombalurina. ;) When I am able to return to the site full time, I plan on changing my sig to "As if we never said goodbye."

    Hallyx, I think you should make a sticky on why pH and water hardness are actually important, because I don't think people know a whole bunch about it, and whenever you talk about it you seem very knowledgeable. :)

    :) Yes, Phantom. I'm currently not as active right now on the forum for personal reasons so I thought the quote was fitting. I'm happy someone recognized it. :)

    No worries. Sometimes wild bettas are just weird. Some of mine I don't see for a week or so, and then they pop out like they haven't even been missing.

    Good luck with your boy. Hopefully you see some improvement.

    Honestly, none of my wilds like bare bottom tanks. My persephone looked incredibly pale when they were in a bare bottom grow-out and then when I moved them over into a tank with peat moss as the substrate, the males turned black and blue almost immediately.

    It may be a combination of the slightly harder/higher pH water, the lack of substrate and a lack of tannins (sounds like you are not really big on tannins?) is contributing to the shyness.

    I wouldn't take out everything but the heater unless you have tannin heavy water and a dark bottom or substrate, as that would most likely be stressful as you've said.

    I think give the peat a try. I never even look at the feces of my wild bettas as they live in a semi-feral existence haha and the only health issue I have is with velvet.
