Hi everyone, so i recently found an australian fish website whi ship all over australia. If your pet shop dosent stock any other bettas besides CT or VT you can check out livefish.com.au you can order Plakats, halfmoons, female
Crowntails and other ones. Im getting a plakat around july :D
Just thought some people might be interested as i heard (and know) that it can be hard to find different types of bettas besides CT or VT depending where you live.
I got otocinclus from there. One died after jamming itself between the filter and the tank but the others are still alive and well in my older brother's tank.
This was with my usual lack of acclimatisation in which they just got tipped out into my tank.
Their plants are usually pretty healthy and I have ordered from them lots of times in the past. While their range isn't as spectacular as somewhere like http://www.liverpoolcreekaquariums.com, I still use them when I want generic stems and crypts to chuck in my sororities.
I found an Aus supplier of IAL, which takes Paypal (I refuse to use CC's online). Very useful to find these places, for me, as gadding about town sometimes is not an option. They do supply Exotic Aquatic, so I'm assuming they're a decent company with a good product.
Liverpool Creek does paypal too, and I can see myself saving up for a few things from there.. yes, expensive BUT it has Hygroryza! (I feel a bit silly doing the snoopy-dance over floating grass, but it's so pretty!)
Cheers, LBF, great to hear that feedback on the company. I'll definitely be a customer, their website has me wanting extra tanks just for plants! (madagascar lace plant? swoon.. one day, it will be mine!).
How do you think the hygroryza would do in a smaller tank? My only concern is that I'd end up with tons of it too quickly..
Yup, that's the IAL site. I'm ordering my leaves this week.
Livefish looks like a good site - some really pretty fish, I liked the red doubletail. And the white plakat.. I didn't see any wild ones. But I'm not ready for more bettas yet, and when I am I want my macro.. which I'd prefer to buy locally. Though maybe I'd start with a smaller wild species. Anyway, awesome to have these resources, it's a massive help!
