I applaud your self-control and integrity! And I also wish I had those traits, too 'cause mine are non-existent.

Awww... my avatar is my Sunny man, who was "rescued" from Walmart several years ago. He only lived for 5 months, and had seizures. He was and still is my all time favorite betta. So sweet and friendly. RIP little buddy.

I have another betta that I JUST got who reminds me of Sunny. His name is most likely going to be "Cherubim"... He is a yellow halfmoon. :) My 2nd yellow. I will probably breed him to my female "Koi" betta, who is a HMPK- Eggitha. Here are pics. :D

I almost bought a 2 gal hex tank for $25 from there but then I ended up going to wal-mart to see if I could find that Hawkeye 5 gal. Turns out they only sell them online now. Does anyone know what filter the Hawkeye one comes with or if it's any good of a filter. I have heard it's a decent tank and I'm pretty sure I have room for it. I found a heater from hagen for like $13 and free shipping that is just the right size for the tank. One more betta can't be too much. This is turning into an addiction. I have an empty 30 gallon still but I would need to clean it out. I'm just not sure I really want to deal with a big tank right now. Especially if I move to Florida in less than a year. Moving 2 fish will be bad enough.
I don't have any experience with this exact tank, but I do have experience with the brand of filter it is. It is a Whisper power filter. They make pretty decent filters and air pumps in my opinion. The good thing is, is that the carbon cartridges are easy to come by and every pet store that has even a small fish section, should have them.

He's stunning. I'll be totally honest, I absolutely loathe the color yellow, in fact I think I have a mental allergic reaction to it, but your guy Cherubim is gorgeous. His tail is almost a perfect halfmoon, too. Not bad for a Wal-Mart baby. And Eggitha is so cute, I love her marbling. They'll make a cute pair.

What gorgeous fish ! I've been looking for a yellow male for months. I'd like a solid yellow (no dark or other markings). That female is very unsual looking - kind of like a mosaic.
