now i don't feel so bad! my old fish Phin, (now this was when i knew bettas should not be kept in an un-heated cup, but not much more,) was in a 1 gal, heated bowl with weekly water changes, (i know better now!) and always had a bubble nest! but now my guy Seuss who is in a filtered/ heated 2.5 gal tank has only made a couple of nests in the year i've owned him. but i think he's older, so i just figured he was past breeding. i've always associated bubble nests with happiness, but Seuss seems very happy. i feel better knowing not every betta makes them all the time though. : )
You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, "My God, you're right! I never would've thought of that!"
Riding: The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground.
In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.
