I use mine to transport water to and from the tanks in my room and the sinks.

So earlier I posted that I didn't have a use for my empty half-gallon, but now I'm using it to grow plants that will later be transferred to my bigger tanks. I may get a snail or two to put in there. I don't know about my male, but I don't think my female would appreciate a tank mate too much. She's pretty aggressive and I'm afraid she would torment a snail to death.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

I don't know yet. I bought Perry a new 1.5 gallon and my mom said I can't use it until Christmas. I can sell it, use it for another betta, or grow plants in them. I just can't decide.

I would grow plants in there putting a Betta in a .5 gallon is bad. I know you will love the challenge of a Pictotype which uses no fish.

I currently have 2-8 cup (amount of water they hold) jars for my fry now - also a 1 gallon jar o_o I'm using the big jar for display I think when I get to participate in the farmer's market. I might also put some java fern and a moss ball in there as well.

I keep all the rubber maid containers that my family throws away - you never know when you need them XD I have a cracked 10 gallon that I was working on in the summer to try and fix it up in case of emergency, got it holding water and just randomly started throwing plant trimmings in there... I would keep the trimmings for if I needed a back-up tank for a day or two, I would put them in there as floating plants for the time being. Eventually they would decay into the water, and then I would use make a 1/10th of a cup of this old decayed plant water as fertilizer in my main 10 gallon! Works awesome :D but kind of stopped now as its getting colder outside and I don't want to re-crack the already cracked 10 gallon :D

Yes, leeches are wonderful pets---attractive, interesting behaviors when you have more than one, very easy upkeep, not sensitive to water quality or temperature, only have to be fed twice a year.

Our two medical leeches lived over two years. Thinking of getting more.

What do you feed them? I have heard they can predict storms.
