Betta & Puffers

Do you still have the F8 with the Oscar? The F8 really needs low brackish. He will be more susceptible to disease and won't live as long in fresh water. At least this is what the experts have found to be true.

I have 2 F8s in a 30gal. They're young and pretty much stay together all the time. They're adorable.
