Just out of interest, what fish tanks do you have at the moment?
Oh and also, is it just me or is there a real lack of Bettas in the UK? Most shops I go to have a very small range of them, usually in the standard colours, however over in America they seem to have an abundance of them.
I have a 14 Gallon tank with 6 guppies and 5 neon tetras (and loads of baby guppies). I also have a 9 Gallon tank for my betta, Suzuki. My mum also has a 10 Gallon tank and I have a 2.5 Gallon QT.
Yeah, I noticed the lack of bettas, too! I've only ever seen crowntails, veiltails and one spadetail in the UK. I think generally bettas and fish-keeping is more popular in USA. That's one of the reasons I want to move there when I'm older!
EDIT: Are you a secondary school student? If so, what year are you in? (I'm in Year 8)
