Yeah, it's only FOUR. It's not that bad, it's not like I'm spending all my money or time on them. Just most.

I feel bad for little Alexei, the mean petsmart people gave him fin rot and his caudal looks ragged. At least the clean water is doing him good.

...what?

Thanks for the tip, I think (terrible at reading shortened/text speak, sorry). I'm a bit weary of putting that in the tank, since we have so many varieties here.

I've had friends ask me to pick out fish, tanks, food...teach them how to care for fish...I seem to be the "go to person" for fish among my friends. Probably because they can tell I'm such a nutter...

lol a" nutter" the green alo is safe for all use wat i can do is take a pic of the plant so u can see it, it's the same as the pic u see on some hair n skin products if u friends r comeing to u to pick out fish n other stuff that may means u have a eye for it, here is my tips for picking out good fish 90% of the time i tend to spend about 15 mins watching the fish i want in case of bettas if i can move them about i can see much more about them, my work give me a bit of flex time to study fish a bit so most of wat i have learn was from watching and talking to a lot of people reading some old fish books too now the internet so i'm still learning , i cant really tell u how to bread couse where i live we dont need most of the stuff u guys will need ,all of my bettas live in my yard so i dont need to heat up they tanks but need to keep the quilty of the water at it best at all times, 1 thing i can add maybe is use almond leaf to ur spawning tank give the male ur going to ues about 2 days in it before u add the female, by them u should have a supper size bubble nest

Thank you Chard, I will keep that in mind :)

Sexy looks like she's starting to get eggy...girl I haven't even switched your food chill xP Least she's been getting the guys to flare.

SO I found a 29 gallon on craigslist with "corral background, multi-colored rocks, plants, Roman Coliseum, and pirate ship. It has lighted top, filtration system, and air bubble strip" (quoted from the page). $50. Should I bite, then later resell? (doubt I'd be allowed to keep though I'd love to make a sorority out of some girls from the spawn.)

That's a good deal as it comes with the filter + hood/light.

I'm going to talk to dad about the 29 gal (I have the money, just need permission xP) And I can always get rid of the desk in my room I never use it anyway >.> Yay more tanks.

I haven't figured out the best food for my setup is yet, still doing research on that.
