I feel SO bad pulling those innocent unborn eggs out of the water to slowly dry up.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I finally caught up! Dang, i was on like all afternoon and it was so slow. I go off to run errands and you guys light the place up. :D

Olympia, I think DarkMoon mainly comes on the forum if she has bettas to sell or if someone PMs her with a question. You definitely ask her about the betta community thing. She was more than happy to answer my questions. :)

I've heard that dobies can have very sensitive stomachs. The brother of my cousin's dobie has had some sort of digestive trouble for 6 months of his 1 year life.

EDIT: Also brought a king betta with velvet home from Petco. I never learn.

Tiki, your fishies are so pretty! But I dunno, Ba Sing Se looks kinda big and her anal looks awful big. Can you get a pic of her ventrals?
ventrals? which are those..the ones that hang down near their head?

Hard to say since she has them up by her body, silly girl. But I do see an eggspot. She looks awful big and her anal fin is pretty big but I think she's a girl.

Maybe she has some giant in her? All 4 of them were so small when I got them from petco. Then I put them in a 10G and they sprouted like weeds She flares all the time but her beard isn't that big

She might. Except for that egg spot, she looks like she could be male. Here:

It's a super lousy computer drawing but if you can catch her with her ventrals down and not tucked up against her body, compare them to this:

I can tell you my mystery girl is definitely a plakat boy. Ventrals are still growing! Oh and he is a prodigious nester.
