Siblings. So annoying. I feel your pain. My internet crashed and my sister is addicted to being online so I haven't been able to get internet for about 2 weeks. But now she has to take a test at school, so I get the laptop!

RIP Russell
RIP Quicksilver
RIP Dominic

RIP 4 cories, 23 Ghost Shrimp, and a snail

Walmart isn't the best betta sellers, the bettas are practically dying in their cups. What's up with the water changes?

I just want to answer to ,,dub shih,, from page 5 #45

I am so sorry every one for that post but I just want to answer ''dub shih'' on her comment on me.I guess she really mad at me for what I wrote to another girl in another post. But first of all I felt bad that I even wrote it, secondary my mistake I didn't read previous posts before I wrote my comment,and i apologized and she was ok with me.
I love bettas and I have 5 of them at home and 2 at the office i work on suturday,and betta at my table at my regular work. I also try to help people and animals as much as i can. And ,,dub shih,, mean to me so i want to write something to ''dub shih''

Are u that mean and mad all the time or only to people who are by-lingual. And are u mad for that long? Well it bad for u health to be mad,so smile with good heart if u know what i meant. Sorry for my RUSSIAN-ENGLISH.

I don't mean to be rude to either of you, but if there's an issue you need to take it to PMs, not to the public forum. This particular thread is meant for laughs, and having to read things like that makes other people uncomfortable. I'm sure that others will agree with me.. hash it out in PMs if you must, but please try not to say things like that to each other where the rest of us can read it.

Thanks Capricorn. I completely agree. Now going back to the laughs:

Yesterday I learned that water conditioner and fungal medication are the same thing. There's no reason to buy and use both. Darn, all that money I wasted on fin rot medicine when my conditioner would've done the job .

It's been 5 years...I'm no longer a newbie

56 gal-zebra loaches, serpae tetra, rosy barbs, bristlenose pleco

Today, I learned that horizontal stripes on bettas are just their coloring, even when the rest of their body is pale.

When life throws you lemons throw them back!
I am proud to say I own one fish! He lives in a 14 gallon jungle all to himself PAXTON is my double tail halfmoon featured in my icon :)
