Post better explaining

i got tricked by the person who sold me the "corals". it wasnt corals but is fresh water plants. i found out when the color started 2 fade and turn green. i spent like $100 on those things. oh well. it turned out swimmy doesnt bite or nip other fish. i put him with my friends danio tetras bcuz she had 2 leave 4 a week. ever since i took out the danios, he seems 2 be unactive and spends most of his time at the bottom of the tank. he is put next 2 lucky my blue butterfly male betta. lucky had already made a nest. swimmy and lucky spend alot of time near the divider. well now i no swimmy is a girl bcuz she is full of eggs. heh. listen 2 this. the top of the cup i bought her from was labeled wrong. she had a dullish blue color, isnt the big (1 in.), and has kind of short fins. do you think i should i keep the babies or give away?

You can't just throw them together and let them spawn. You need to do research so you know what you are doing. You also need to know what you're going to do with 100+ fry.

You could put a sign up in your neighborhood " free betta, small donation please" you could keep the $ or donate it to the humane society.i guess you'll end up, one of "those" who have to put them in cups.You can put a spoon of sand in the bottom.It's not as easy as one thinks when your blessed with 100+ babies. ah ha.Oh your in nj so you'll have to really heat the room up too.

I'm sorry, but how did you get SALTWATER corals mixed up with FRESHWATER plants?

I think we should have a 'thread of the year' contest on this forum at the end of the year...

Lol, i can't even find any simularity between a freshwater plant and a coral... none at all! Or who spends $100 on plants for a betta! i am really hoping she is exaggerating!

I also think we need a sticky on proper sentence structure.... lol, not that i have much place to talk...
