Nice shelves Matt =D

The only thing I'd suggest to keep in mind is that on the lower levels where there's not so much natural light, they tend to remain more active with a neighbour than being alone. Did Styxx wonders when I moved him next to FishBeastie.

I used to have a crayfish. He was a great pet, but sadly died during a difficult molt.

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

One betta died but I guess it's okay cause it was never gonna be bred. I'd rather it be that one than mine from CJ. My feeder way overages my cichlids but they are all alive. Tons of wc tomorrow though

Big red. I'm thinking it was from old age because he was getting lazy and sluggish like it black pk. He was in his own heated 10 gal

So I went to aquarium central, and despite Sena Hansler's negative review, I was really impressed.

They had Betta smaragdina but they were not for sale as a precaution because one of them was recovering form some sort of disease. The smaragdina needed to colour up a bit but they were still beautiful. They were eight bucks each... A really good price.

Their stock was reasonably priced. They also had a good selection, smaller then big Als but much less expensive. They had rabbit snails in all sorts of colours (most of them were 4$), lots of shrimp (decent prices), and lots of other awesome things. They carried hikari frozen foods, and I bought some brine shrimp because I am not nervous to use hikari food (much better sanitization practices). Oh, and their frozen food was almost half the price of petsmart's.

Oh, and I also want to add that while I was there, one employee, a young woman, was talking to another employee about the temperature of the betta bowls (which were large for a petstore). She was noticeably angry because their bowls weren't 76 degrees... Awesome.

So yea... I will be back.

*waves* I'm Canadian too!
Love reading your fish journal. I very recently got into the hobby, and can't get more tanks other than for my 1 betta right now, so I figure I'll read lots of fish journals and live through others' experiences xD

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it.

I love feeding my fish frozen brine shrimp. Most of them absolutely love it.
