Welcome to the forum! Always nice to have another fish lover to chat with. Tell me, do you seriously have a Betta in a 100 gallon tank? That must be the happiest Betta in the world, if you do. Sure beets the nasty little cups they house them in at the pet stores.

We LOVE photo's here so feel free to share.

well this site saved sushi, I have four huge blood parrots, 6 blue congos, 6 rainbow fish, 4 cories, a rescue goldfish , a community 30 gal tank of misfits(fish with one eye, funny swimmers and other odd fish) a rescue cat called Mia who was dumped at the local vets , underweight, fleas, pregnant, no hair on tail or back end, bleeding gums, sore eyes, cat flu, is beautiful now, am finding my way around the site, have posted a pic somewhere,the only problem with it is that I seriously covert your tanks and bettas, they are all so nice
