Glad to see the forum put up a warning about posting our website address in stores..
Hate to say I told you so but really, people. I told people not to do it and they brushed me off. >_<
Did the warning show up on bettafish.com?

Someone tell me how nitrates could be about 40 in a 55gal tank with 2 koi/1 comet but 80 in a 300 gal pond, over roughly the same period of time. I'm so confused.

EDIT: Also, I can't tell if this little endler guppy adores my regular male guppy or is harassing him. He is constantly following him, sometimes really closely, but I don't see nipping from either one. What's going on?

Here's the halfmoon girl I got a few days ago.



And the king betta that had mild velvet and is still kinda iffy on survival.

Yay for driftwood! Did you ever figure out if you could seal up those spots with aquarium silicone? Personally, I don't see why not. I mean, the wood is already dead anyway so a little silicone shouldn't hurt it.

EDIT:

Here's a quick video of the guppies. What do you guys think is going on here? I don't see nipping. Big guppy's tail is still big and full.

From the first half of the video that I could watch (bad iPod), it looks like the endler is just challenging the guppy. It's what boys do. Endlers and gups are pretty close and do interbreed in the wild.
