Yes we use imperial here in the states, but Milimeters are smaller than centimeters and since they are too small to be a centimeter, we use milimeter...

I agree. Also it isn't going to change as long as teachers are teaching kids inches, feet, ect

So back to my fry! lol, the ick/velvet has cleared up and hopefully it stays that way. Last night though when I was adding water to the tank with the dripping method, the tube from the clean water slip off the bucket and my tank water dripped off. I'd say that there was only 20% left. I panicked and though that my fry got siphoned out from the tank. Luckily I didnt see any on the floor, but it made such a huge mess ugh.

So I had a mini mosquito farm outside that I had been brewing (wasn't really expecting that I would get any) and I had to check it out. There was like a whole bunch of them that have been waiting for me to harvest. I fed them to my bettas and they all went crzazy over them, it was hilarious. Can't wait for my fry to get bigger so I can feed them those.

My bettas get so excited when I feed them mosquito larvae, they flare while eating.

OMG one of my fry is being savage already. I was cleaning the tank and I noticed that one of them has something in their mouth. I look closely and it spit it out, then I noticed that it was a fry (not sure if it was already dead or that fry killed it) I feel so bad and they're only 2 weeks old =(
