I'd love to raise some fry and be able to watch them grtow into beautiful adults. I got my baby from 1fish2fish but he was 5 months old. He has gotten a lot bigger so I did get the chance to watch him get bigger.

I would love some fry to watch but sadly, no room. So I got guppies instead and I'll raise their fry. Good practice for when I do get to breed bettas.

I'm living vicariously through Punki's spawn log, that's how I get my "cute fry" fix.

Ah man the temptation is killing me. Also my co-worker just gave me another 10 gallon [filter and hood included. I have like 4 extra heaters for some reason] when I asked her if she knew where a good fish store was around here. All 'here you go'.

At the very least I want to buy/get a small young fry and raise that - though out here finding that is going to be impossible. I can't even find Moss. :/

Ginko - White/Black Marble Delta Female :D

You too? I can't find Java Moss either and it's driving me nuts. Does CA have a ban on it or something? I know they won't ship Water Sprite here . . .
