I was talking to my dad on the phone today, and he finds it quite funny that I already have 5 bettas. He keeps fish as well, but doesn't like bettas...to each his own, I guess. Anyway, he has 3 tanks, one which is 50 gal with a rowdy pink kissing gourami that we all love to hate as well as a pleco and whatever else he may have thrown in there in my absence.
But here's some cool news! He tells me that once his fish die (hopefully they live a happy life, though) I can have his tank because he's sick of fish keeping. xD
50 gal...I'm so excited at the prospect. I'm planning ahead to how it's gonna be like and everything, lol. I was thinking of splitting it in 5 (10 gals each) and doing a male, sorority, male, sorority, male pattern. Or I could split the male section further in two and add 3 more males...ohhh, the possiblities seem endless!
This is going to be quite a few years in the future, though...probably when I move out. And er...the kissing gourami and the pleco are about 6-7 years old now. What are their life expectancies, anyway?
