A lot of the info I need ATM comes from google translated German pages- solid info, I know.
When I finally start getting paid I'm looking to finish off (for now) my aquarium collection with a bang.
I naturally go for the rare and exotic, it's why I got interested in fish.. Somehow I got stuck with all these betta, lol. I currently do have a decent sized list of rare fish I'm looking into importing as soon as I can, and though for some I can find some good info- I'm not gonna get anything on commando crabs or rare halfbeaks/macrobrachium in English. Some of the fish I'm interested in, you pretty much gotta improv what you're doing with them.
So yay, I suffer. This show stopper will be the last tank I can set up realistically until I'm done my studies.

YES Sakura, I am living my dream through you for the moment. :p
This is one of the fish I'm quite interested in: (sorry can only post the link on mobile). It's called a peppermint crocodile fish. They do sell them on the foster and smith fish site, so they aren't too bad availability wise, one of the few fish I wouldn't have to import from Sulawesi myself. xD

I'd need 30 gallons for a group and all that RO water would be an ongoing cost for keeping them.
They are related to gourami, actually. Which also means related to our betta.

Cool fish!
btw I got another PM asking me to join that other forum. This time it's under a different user name. Are we being trolled? o.o

It's an adorable fish.
Bekah is this a problem?! I am getting a pair of chocolate rabbits as soon as I work up the courage to pay $12 for two snails that may be 2 males or two females. >.<

Also, I got a pm too. Something about how everyone is going there! Some dumb forum that'll probably die soon due to a bad reputation of advertising itself against other forum rules.
