I hate posting introduction threads, but I guess I will anyway.
I used to keep multiple tanks, and I've always loved bettas. I haven't had a tank set up in several years, but my 5 year old has been begging to set one up, so I finally gave in.
We're setting up a Fluval Spec V (just finished cycling!). Tonight we're planting the plants and setting the driftwood that's just been floating and sitting in the tank. I'm adding some Red Cherry Shrimp tomorrow to let them get established, and then we'll be betta hunting.
She's dying for a Rosetail ... I think she'd be ok with a halfmoon if I can't find a Rosetail. Anyone know of a breeder in the Dallas area? I hate to buy from the LFS if I can avoid it, because the bettas I have bought in the past have always been sick!
