Go away, BrookeGrace, there's no place here for you, you have too much self- control and you're making me jealous.
What about me? I go all the time and I have walked home with two bettas, exactly when I planned to take them home.

RIP Russell
RIP Quicksilver
RIP Dominic

RIP 4 cories, 23 Ghost Shrimp, and a snail

Your self-control is so darned good it's scary . . . and no fun. How's Quicksilver doing, by the way? Has he healed from his scratch? Anyway, fishman, your day will come soon. Buwahahaha! The moment you have just a little bit of free space, like say a 2g tank size worth of space, you'll be joining us. You'll find that betta you just can't live without even if it means doing a little rearranging to get him to fit.

Unfortunately, Bettawolf found that one at a garage sale. She's good at finding deals. Craigslist might be a good place to find inexpensive tanks. Tisia found a posting in Eugene, OR of a guy selling 20g tanks for $6 or something crazy like that.

AB will be the financial ruin of us all. I think we should all get web blockers that are programmed to block that site.

No, no I can't imagine landing in a coffee cup, especially full of coffee, would be a fun experience for a betta.

Erin, thanks for the tip about feeding the panda corys. How much do you feed and how often? I think the panda corys are the cutest of the cory cats.

SERIOUSLY? Oh no, I need cat treats so I need to go soon. I'm doomed. Let's see, I was thinking of cramming a 10g by my bed, could put a 5g in the bathroom. I AM running out of water conditioner, too . . . Thanks, littlebittyfish, for sharing the madness.

LOL. For some reason the thought of your house literally LITTERED with tanks is hilarious xD

If only I could do the same

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

yup done the craigslist thing, thats were i found my 20g L, then I got a hood ,light,filter and heater for $15 from another ad. I'm still undecided what to put in it...right now little boy blue got booted from his QT(because of my new un-named HM) and its his. When I got him he couldn't swim down, so i did the epsom salt treatment and hes all better and graduated to the big boy tank but know hes not pale blue anymore looking kinda purple

without doing a whole lot of searching can someone answer a quick question, how long do you QT a new fish in AQ salt i decided to use the salt because he had some fin nippage going on and just to be on the safe side because he came from PETCO??
