Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

So we all know that bettas and goldfish are often stuck in homes not suited for them. I've complied a list of fish (with pretty pictures) that would work much better than bettas and goldfish: Better alternatives for an unheated tank.

I know it's been a while since my last post, but there is good reason for that! Another blogger and I did guest posts for each other! She wrote about keeping brackish aquariums (something I know little about) and I wrote her an article about the labyrinth organs of bettas. Check out our articles here: Brackish Aquariums and Labyrinth Organ

Bettas are pretty easy to sex, but what about other fish? Learn how to here: Is my fish a girl or a boy?

Valentine's Day

Thinking about getting someone a kissing gourami for Valentine's Day? You might want to rethink that idea. I explain why in this week's article: That Kiss!

Woah! It's been a while since I updated but I haven't posted a lot. Work has really picked up and I haven't had much time for my blog. I still keep my tumblr current, tho.

Anyway! Today I posted a video that was made by an excellent underwater documentarian. In this video he shows us some of the natural habitats of many south american fishes. Fish in their Natural Habitats.

I've been really lax on posting as I should this month. Oops! Work has really picked up. But I did get a fun post off for today! My top 10 favorite aquarium fish!
