and then I have an awful Petco. Which I try to avoid Petco as much as possible. Petco's employees are just not correctly informed, prices are sometimes outrageous, and their animals are always in such bad health. However, sometimes I can get cheap filters and heaters at Petco.
Yeah...I have a PetCo. It's attached to the local mall (which also hosts a Walmart, TJ Maxx, Ross and formerly a Dollar Tree
). I went there for a lot of start up supplies -- tank, hose, net, decoration. I got my substrate, plants and fish from the LFS.
So I do have experience with fry, just not betta fry. I don't even think Prince has really created a bubble nest... How do you start to influence them to make a bubble nest?
I've never really influenced him. The most I could say is I put a lot of effort into making sure the surface water was still enough in at least one part of the tank. He's also got a pretty high-protein diet...but so does Prince so...
