    Well I know you do religious cleanings so I can't imagine why they wouldn't be!!! I was just curious what size you had, since I couldn't imagine having the space for all of those bettas. xD

    Hey Catw0man,

    Yes it is really disheartening when a gorgeous Halfmoon blows their fins. Usually as you mentioned I find that after a while they do tend to get used to each other and settle down but about a week ago two of my HM boys who have been housed next to each other for a couple of months with no problems suddenly decided to 'fight to the death' despite the division between them. I was so sure that they would get over it but after 48 hours of continuous flaring their gorgeous fins were diminished to stumps :( I ended up rearranging them and they seem okay now. I am planning to stick to plakats from now on though with my track record I will probably end up with more long fins at some stage...

    Just had a look at your new photos and WOW your fish are so amazing, love them all and especially the handsome fellow that is your avatar. Your tanks look really nice I like the way that you have them set up. I really like those tanks that have the inbuilt lights, they look so cool. I might get a light for my 4 ft barracks some day when I can afford it. Actually I was offered a job last time I walked into our LFS and I took it! My second day tomorrow, I'm so lucky to be able to work with fish :) Lucky they don't sell the fancy varieties of bettas otherwise I would be in trouble.....would probably end up with a hundred or so lol!

    Do you ever have troubles with your halfmoons blowing their fins from flaring too much? I have had endless troubles with this lately :( Unfortunately the way my tanks are designed means I cannot block their view of eachother so I have had to do some rearranging and put less aggressive bettas between the aggressive ones.....

    Just out of curiosity, what do you house your bettas in?

    Hi Catw0man,

    Wow your fishies arrived!!!!!!! how exciting, such a shame about the two that died though:( still 34 out of 36 isn't too bad I guess. Yes I expect you are super busy looking after them all! So wish I lived closer to you too, I so could have bought some from you if you felt that you needed to cut down a little. Especially now because I have just finished making a new betta barrack tank that will hold another 10 males, can't wait until it is all set up. Shame but anyway I certainly wish you luck in finding a few of them homes if you decide you have too many, I am sure anyone would feel super lucky to be able to buy from you :) Know I would! Oh I just noticed that you have some new photos in your album, off to check them out ! Good to hear from you and may all your bettas stay happy and healthy :)

    Have you ever put any thought into breeding? Oh the fish you could provide to other Canadians who can't import...

    Hi Catw0man!

    Oh your bettas have not arrived yet, I bet you are excited and cannot wait for them to arrive!!!!!! It will be like Christmas come early, so exciting to open all the boxes and find your beauties inside. What a great feeling. I would be so impatient for them to arrive though as you sensibly say it does give you more time to get their tanks all set up for them. Best to be organised especially with that many arriving all at once. Anyways be sure to let me know when they arrive I cannot wait to see photos :) May they all arrive happy and healthy for you!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for the heads up on the Aquabid guy! He is gorgeous (I tracked him down by searching for the seller) and he is almost exactly what I want. Unfortunately, after finding out the prices from my closest transhipper, I will be having to save for awhile before I can order any fishies from outside of the country. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know and for thinking of me!
