Yup. Half moons are hard to keep as you have to maintain their beautiful fins aswell as getting those impaired fins to be symmetrical can be tough. Hmpk are fun to work with IMO plus their smaller fins are easier to work with especially in tough water conditions here in Calgary

My water is fine for bettas. Ph and GH is a little higher then ideal but not bad. Tailbiters suck.

Not only are hmpks easier to keep, there is just something about them that makes them awesome. They are way more interactive with e owner and more active because of their smaller fins.

Agreed. I think the plakat in them makes them spunkier and active. I love the way they wag their body and move when flaring and dancing for a female.

Got all my water changes done, cleaned the chi, and got a mealworm culture which is now in a jar going crazy over a piece of carrot, since the petstores starve them. Tomorrow I will get them in oats.

Still trying to draft shelves that will work in the space I have.

Anyone have suggestions as to what to do with my 33g?

Cichlids!!! Get some nice dwarf cichlids. Like rams, kribs, Agassiz, or apistogramma cacuatoides or something like that.

No I meant betta-wise. Lol. But my brothers (technically it's his. Really it's mine) 29 (?) should be open soon...

I was waiting for that response haha. If you want it can just become a grow out. Or if you're interested you could do something like what CJ has with the planters sorority with the cories and some large tetras.

Yea... Idk. Whatever it it it will be planted, and have bettas in it. Like I said before I'm thinking about dividing it and housing females from two upcoming spawns in it. Making it a grow out/sorority type thing until they sell, then adding in the next batch. Still not sure. Would love to hear what other people think though.

My black boy, my (I'm so ashamed to admit this) favorite fish ever, and the fish that really got me into this, is showing his age pretty badly. Poor guy used to have so much energy and a huge appetite, today I came home to him laying on a leaf and breathing heavily. Sigh. I'll be upset if he dies but I know he will have had a good life.
