Your ideal fish - in your ideal tank

If there was a fish tank fairy... what would you ask her for - and why?


Here's my fish wish:



Because I have fallen in love with B. macrostoma - they're beautiful, of course, and they are endangered in their native environment. I'd like to be a part of keeping this magnificent species alive. Plus, they have the cutest grumpy-faces.

My ideal tank for this fish is a huge & heavily planted paludarium (not quite as pictured, though - I'd want more water in there!):




Mainly as I love plants, too, especially semi-aquatic and tropical plants. This is just my perfect set-up, only with lots more water (longer, and with perhaps sloping 'banks') and with some little epiphytic orchids in the mix.


SIGH. A girl can dream.

Oh my gosh - I didn't even know bettas came in that colour arrangement.. he's certainly a stunning fish! Can't blame you asking the fishwish fairy for that one, at all.
