Oh also, an NPT can go without water changes for a while because the plants are used to suck up ammonia and everything else. OFL does like 3-4 water changes a year on her 75 gallon.

Well OFL did breed them for a couple years just so they would no longer be aggressive when taken out towards each other, so she is like a fish wizard! It is pretty crazy, but remember she had to breed them for a couple years just to get the aggression bread out of them, so no pet shop bettas will allow it. So no one try it :)

I found an amazing piece at LFS, they sell like the Ferraris of fish keeping, everything there is amazing, but it was a giant root cluster, had to be over 10 pounds that was Malaysian. I would have needed a big tank and $70 lol. If anyone would like to see how gorgeous the place is its http://neptuneaquatics.com/ check their gallery and your jaw may drop

Here is Bohemian Rhapsody's tank. It was loaned to me by a coworker and i had the Eco-Complete substrate and bamboo, and added 3 amazon swords, one java fern, and a 'broken' jar. His glass vase it just in there because he used to really adore it and I don't want to remove it until he loses interest in it. I am adding a pagoda, mondo grass, and an onion plant tomorrow- but I had to show it off because... Well, I haven't had anything brag worthy before. What do you think about a different background? Like bamboo or zen garden?
