So I know I haven't been very active these past few weeks. I've got a few articles in the works, but they're still far from publishing. However, I have created a tumblr as the companion to my main blog! You can follow me there and get all of the updates from my blogspot blog as well as some extra tidbits!

So I finally got around to finishing one of those articles I've been working on. Since I've been doing a lot of writing about goldfish recently I decided to focus on betta for a week.

You can buy a pretty white one in the store and it will turn a peachy-yellow in a few days. There are three reasons why betta change colors: stress, age, and genetics.

Either way, I would like to point out the major differences between koi (Cyprinus carpio) and goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus).

I wanted to do something different, so I did a review of some "sustainable" fishkeeping gadgets that seem to keep popping up.

That is the general idea behind aquaponics, but there are a few variations. Recently, I have seen a few products come on the market aimed at home aquaponics systems. Some are good, and some are bad. This is one of the bad ones I recently stumbled upon.

Today I got around to posting an update on my tanks. This will be the last one for the year because we're taking a vacation at Christmas. I'll stock the 29 gal when we get home, but today I added some new plants to it!! Read more and see pictures here!

Other Ideas for that Small Tank

Last post of year!! I didn't get my Christmas article out in time. Oh well. I'll do it next year. But for right now, read about some other ideas for that small fish tank once your betta has been upgraded! Because the best way to prevent yourself from impulse buys is to fill all your spare tanks!

Aww thanks! ^-^

This week I did a goldfish-themed article about the many different breeds of goldfish. It comes with pictures of the common ones as well as some uncommon ones! Gold Fish Breeds.
