    BTW congrats on super-moderator status! When we address you, do we say "Your highness" or simply genuflect? Are we allowed to look directly at you, or will we be blinded by the golden luminosity of your face!!!!!!!!

    Floaty is better than not floaty I guess. According to Sandra Bullock "Hope floats!"

    Nyuk yuk yuk!

    Are all your bettas in little tanks or what? I am (sorry to say) not a huge fan of betta splendens (mostly because of how badly the industry is currently "using" them as a way to suck money away from people who really ought to save up for a "real tank"). But I hope to get into some of the other betta species, like the macrostoma, which in some color morphs is a gorgeous fish. I am also contemplating a tank of Sphaerichthys Vaillanti (Samurai Chocolate gouramis) which are purportedly a bit hardier than the true chocolate. There is only one domestic source I know of, and their reputation is not great. So this plan is temporarily on hold. Oh well-- just gives me that much more time to do my homework and get my act together!

    Best wishes to "floaty" for a speedy recovery!

    You poor baby! Mysteriously deceased fish always upset the heck out of me. I think: "I'm one of the ones who knows what they're doing! This shouldn't happen to me!"

    It's constantly humbling, huh? If our fish knew how talented we are, they would never leave us! Your bettas are so lucky to have you. I kind of hate how the industry is using bettas to get a few bucks out of people who really don't have the means to keep fish the proper way. There are lots of things I try to "turn a blind eye to" when I visit the local LFS or petco. Lots of ugly little aspects to the industry that really need to be addressed in a humane way. The LFS around the corner from where I live actually had tatooed fish for sale! You can be sure I told them what I thought of that!

    Sorry about your little guy. Be well!
