if you get too many you can always throw some into other betta tanks, they'll probably enjoy the live food >_>

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking. I'll feel like a cruel person but it's nature's vicious cycle, I'm only helping. And I think the guppies will eat their own fry anyway.

Do guppies eat their own fry as well? I must be a very evil person then, letting Handsome nom like that XD

I know OFL has mentioned she keeps guppies basically as a source of live food, lol. that way you don't have to worry about parasites and such since you know they're healthy

Yeah, a lot of people keep them for that reason, especially if they have big cichlids.

I say guppies. Because the basically multiply, and you feed the fry to Bettas. Which they love. And keep a few to have more guppies!

MWAHAHAH! >3



I can't believe you're gone, Tom.

I think I'm definitely leaning toward guppies at this point. I'm hopefully going to the pet store to check out their selection tonight.

Okay, I'm back with four guppies and two more pandas. They're all in a 3 gallon kritter keeper for QT, so hopefully only a week and I plan on doing daily water changes because I know that's kind of overloaded. I'm a little worried about the guppies and their need for extra oxygen, though. Should I put a sponge filter in or an airstone? I have an airpump and sponge filter but no airstone, easy to go get though. Wish I had a bigger tank for QT but nowhere to put it.

PWNISHER - Will do. Looks like two of the females are pregnant already. Hope they don't give birth in the kritter keeper!
