All in fun, folks. I'll start:

Today I learned that if I purchase their brand of water conditioner, my betta fish could live for as long as 20 years. 20 years!!

I learned that you could keep a male and a female in a five gal no problem. >.<

Edit- and if I bought two males, I could keep them together in a half gal tank... I mean, really...


In the hobby for 9 years.

I learned that groups of females can never under any circumstance be allowed to live in the same tank.

Note that I have a sorority of 7! lol

11 females
10 males

I never ask my LFS. I ask forums and the internet instead; or if I ask them it's once I've researched myself first.

I didn't learn, but I was told that they said that Males and Females looked the same. TRUE STORY!
