How many bettas does everyone have? And are they any really good LFS's close to you?

No! What happened! I live so close to Minnesota that I only get MN news and radio!

There was a group of black kids(?) *I'm not racist, this is how it was* that was attacking white people as they were walking out of the fairgrounds. I don't know if it was some sort of gang thing, or if it was just a group of bored teenagers, but it was a pretty big deal. They had to set in place new rules and such for the fairgrounds but I don't remember much about it. I just know that good thing while up I'm there I don't leave the fairgrounds ever!

I read about that last night. holy cow!! they said it was a mob attack and like 24 people were arrested. =/ and yeah I was going between east and west petco, looking for females being picky and I saw him and I had to buy him!! His name is Hercules. His fins have alil black at the tips but I dont think anything is wrong for 2 months it has been like that and his fins have stayed the same so I thing that is just his coloring, black with yellow and black fins. My boyfriend calls him Hades lol. I have pictures of them all in albums on here. Haku is in my avi only

Hi Wisconsinites! Would anyone be interested in a Fluval Edge? I want to upgrade to a larger tank.

6.6 Gallon. I found someone in town who will trade it for a 10 gallon, though. So that's good at least! What aquarium plants would you suggest, and what are the best places in wisconsin to get them from?

Honestly I find the best place to get plants is online. It's hard to find stores that have nice plants, but there is a place in Madison, Living Art Aquarium, that I saw had a lot of planted tanks. For me, the drive isn't worth it, but for someone in that area, that may be a good place to check.

What are the best websites? I found some marimo balls on amazon, but not sure I can trust that.
