Well it's not a promotion per se... and we add people to the team based on our needs at the time. We def. needed more mods. helping out on the betta side of the world.

We just added Sakura and Indjo to the mod. team because they are wise, fair, and all around awesome members of the forum.

So welcome to both of them!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

It really has nothing to do with length of membership or post counts.

Im guessing it has to do with contributing helpfully, which is why I'll never be a mod. Because I don't contribute very much :D

WHAT?!?! Thats tragic Tiki! Its a shame you lost so many! You'll probably get more like always =)
I kinda suspected it was gonna happen but not THAT many and the ones that survived were the ones I though were gonna die. I'm sure there will be more. There are some from Chard on AB I would like but shipping fish now has me a bit leary

OH and Canadian Customs just asked If we had any wildlife or guns. Nothing else.

Just looking for experience on buying and hatching eggs. Not really the fish, I've looked into them a bit. Just wondering if buying eggs would be a waste.

None in particular although the ones I was looking at are a mix of Nothobrancius Rachiovi , Guentheri Red, Guentheri Blue and Red eggersi. Annuals don't bother me, I rather fish with less lifespan. Not to sound cold but I'm a renter and I don't want fish I have to keep for over 5yrs lol

That's Canada, don't bring your Cougars or guns.. everything else is fine lolz Sorry to hear about your fishes :( I don't know how you do it, if I lost that many... getting more would be the last thing on my mind :(

Eggs? They sell allot of then on aqua bid, if you just plop them in the right kind of water conditions, like the fishtank they'll be in, they'll hatch just fine. They can go dry for a while. Ever heard the commercial "My best fish friends"? Killifish. Aw, thanks tiki.

I think knowing how they are treated in petstores has alot to do with it. I wonder of my local walmart has bettas? I know they sell goldfish and stuff, IF I ever GET to New York I have to hold the 3 remaining fishies in front of the car heater the rest of the way. Its not fun

Right now I am waiting for John to get back from walmart with a tire so we can leave Fort Saint John
