    Im just starting to make the switch.... Im lovin it!!!!
    Lol.... the easiest by far are moss balls.... there is NOTHING to do other than clean them once a week and rotate them... Im having a REALLY easy time with Hornwort.... I have yet to use any additives... I have the same walmart light that my tank came with (10 gal kit) and its growing CRAZY, I just got some anacharis a few days ago, it was pretty much dead (its in QT) but its making a pretty good comeback... I hear Ludwigia and anubis is easy to, those are my next ones to get

    Some girls may always have stress stripes (I've heard) its a way they blend into their surroundings and I think it can also be a sign of submission....
    You ha a tetra in your sorority? a lot of times girls will gang up on other fish who "aren't betta" unless theres a good abount of them... I have yet to try bettas and other fish (other than corries... and they all ignore each other)

    Lol... do I hear another sorority? XD She really was, I saw another orange girl, not as orange as she was though and not the same fiery personality, at Walmart the the other day... I passed her up for a sick little CT... I have a soft spot for them :-/
    One of my favorite plan decorations has a REALLY bad plant attached to it, it shredded one of my bettas fins, I have since removed it and covered the whole with a bit AQ glue... but both myself and the bettas loved the decoration so much I had to go out and buy more... and fix them XD
    Good luck! Try checking out Ebay, I've gotten some REALLY good deals on silk plants from there

    Keep a look out on the mortal enemies, I ended up having to remove one of my girls, Eurydice, because she kept getting into it REALLY bad with Omen... I made the decision to remove her because she would also attack the other girls....
    Thats exactly what Im talking about, its like a little soap opera.... both myself and my BF LOVE to sit there and watch them, its VERY peaceful and sometimes you just can't help but laugh at their antics
    I'd love to hear what happens when you break the news to your great aunts! lmao

    If they are being to aggressive you can take them all out and do it now...
    It really amazing to watch them, they seem to have such complicated little lives.... and you'll probably start to notice that they stay in groups or pairs (buddy system)... I know a few members have said that they have caught two of their girls snuggling up together while sleeping XD the girls are all so cute

    Lol, yea, when the pleco starts to move, the angel swims over to him, then waits till the pleco moves again, then tries to poke him with his nose. But plecos have hard skin, so my poor angel is just frustrated! I know some like the bristle nose are little, but I'm not sure if my pet shop has them, although they do have some of the zebra ones, I think those are pretty small. Of course, my pet shop could have the little ones for sure, everything's in Japanese tho, xP, so I can't asl!
