Yeah, it IS kinda strange that I crave sushi after looking at fish...

I LOVE my bettas SO much! I think my boyfriend may be jealous!

And yeah! I want a giant betta so badly.



That's how big they are!

Have you checked on Aquabid? I would love to have a halfmoon but there isn't any place around me that has any. I wish Petsmart would carry them.

What looks like ick?

And they sell halfmoons at Petco but they don't really look like halfmoons, they look more like delta tails... Also, aquabid has some AMAZING fish, but sometimes they're so expensive! The halfmoons cost a lot of money and of course as usual... I'm broke.

Aquabid, DOES have some beautiful fish. I think I'd rather buy mine at the petstore though. And you're right, Aquabid is very expensive. I don't have a Petco near me. I heard on another site that Petsmart had crowntail females but mine doesn't. I wonder if Petsart could special order...

If you ask Petsmart they might do a special order. I have both a PetCo and a Petsmart in my town, but I always go to PetCo because they have A LOT more stuff for fish and they have a better selection of bettas! Also my friend works there too so sometimes I can get discounts!

I know one of the Petsmsmart managers so I may ask him. Yeah, Petco has a better variety of bettas. It's nice that you can get discounts.

That's a good idea, if not, you may have to spare some extra money for a betta off of Aquabid. I plan on ordering one on Aquabid eventually because I want a halfmoon that looks like a halfmoon not a delta.

Ok, so I'm really concerned. Roxanne has been very active in his new tank, but just a few minutes ago, he was just floating at the top of his tank, and I thought he was dead
I attacked his tank (viciously tapped it) and he didn't move until I almost shook the tank. So he finally moved, and then he just sat on the bottom. Now he's moving around a little more, but he still seems kind of still. I think he'll be ok, but I'm afraid that I'm going to wake up to a dead betta in the morning.

Ok, so also... I was over at my friend's house today and I think her fish has swim bladder disorder. Her fish (Kurama), sometimes leans to the side when he swims and whenever he tries to go to the bottom of the tank, he floats back up. She's tried the pea a few times and she's seen his poop, so he's not constipated. This IS swim bladder right? And from what I hear there's no way to cure it right?

It DOES sound like swimbladder disorder. Has he ever been dropped, like when she was changing the water or anything? I have one that was dropped before I got him and he does that every now and then and he poops just fine.As for Roxanne, it may just be theshock of new surroundings. Just keep an eye on him. He sure is a pretty fish!
