Has anyone purchased the Ebook about Bettas advertised on the website??? I just did and the info on disease is just ridiculous. I've learned more about Betta sickness for free on this forum, what a disappointment.

I remember reading in a thread about it ages ago that the e-book wasn't actually affiliated with this forum.

I am sceptical of anyone proclaiming to be a guru on all things bettas when they can't even pronounce the name properly.

Unfortunately, the petco here on the island of oahu doesn't carry it
In general, Petco carries crap for fish meds. When I lived in Alaska, I would buy most of the stuff off ebay just so I would have it on hand - just in case.
You may want to pick up the anti parasite meds you need AND something that fights gram negative bacteria like Furan 2 or Kannaplex, just in case you need it in the future. That way you will have it on hand in case you ever need it. Some diseases can kill in a few hours

In other news, how do people NOT do 100% water changes every now and then? The amount of crap...literally...in my 20G was just...EWWWW
I guess that happens when you got a bunch of these things running around

Can plants get ich? I swear, the plants in my 5.5gal look like they have ich parasites. I'm not kidding. I think Jack the betta may have three parasites on him. Maybe need to pick up some Rid Ich to put in there, don't want to damage the plants. Finally got the banana plant growing nicely.
Oh! I saw that free shipping too! But then I was like "but the size I need isn't going to come out to $49 :( But wait! I can add another item and make it $49! Fishy presents!!!!!" then hubby was like "Next paycheck, we has no monies" NNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!! But it still aint a bad price for one on not sale xD


I don't think plants can get ich. Ich feeds off of the fish's blood and tissues. Maybe you're see the parasites that have fallen off the fish?

Cause she is fed a raw diet and I've been having to play Tetris in our freezer. It's really annoying :P

OH I see! Though, nothing wrong with Tetris! My sister and I survived sharing a room as kids because we understood the packing method for under the bed storage from that game ;)

Met some nice people in my education meet-n-greet. I already love my program :)
