Oooooh! Hehe, cool. Thankfully, I never have algae, so I guess I'm not getting any snail buddies for my bettas. :P

You definitely are lucky with that beautiful HM for the price of a delta! And he's gorgeous to boot. Don't worry, a lot of people get the betta fever, even me for a while. Though I had to resist because it's just too expensive. Now I'm having fun setting up a beautiful community tank though, so I suppose the fish bug hasn't completely gone away. =] And it's still fairly expensive, argh.

Thanks so much! He is so pretty, he is just loving all of these compliments, I keep telling him about them, and he is gloating and flaring. Hehe. And I know right? Hehe. Luckily, I have only paid for 1 tank ($20), conditioner ($15 total so far), 1 plant ($4), betta bulbs ($4), 1 ornament, ($10) food ($4) and a heater ($12). I also paid for 2 of my bettas. ($4 and $7.50) That is the total amount of money I have spent on my fish in 7 months! The rest of my plants, tanks, gravel, filter, another ornament were gifts. Even one of my bettas were a gift from my mom. :D I don't think this is too much money, especially when bettas give so much fun, personality and beauty back. :D

FuulieQ,

"It says snail-free on the package"

"Snail free" must be a typo. What they really meant to say was "Free Snail"!

You know, like the cereal boxes in days of old... comes with a FREE surprise.

Just be glad in came in the plant and not in your cereal!

(Lol @ Here Fishy) He is a very beautiful boy BetteLuver!
And...I never had any problems with thos "snail free" plants from Petsmart, though I did get a free snail with the purchase of my fish. Two actually, they got scooped up with the fish from a little aquarium shop. They are not the type of snails I would keep in a tank, only because they reproduce so quickly and eventually they overrun the tank. I will only get Mystery Snails if I have a choice.

I will have to look into it then! Do you guys reccomend live plants? As I said, my VT just got live betta bulbs, so he should be covered. Should I get some for my other two? Not neccessarily the bulbs, but live plants? And thanks so much, he is so sweet.

What do you have to do differently for live plants than fake plants? :) I don't want fertilizers and chemicals involved, and if it makes my water dirty and cloudy, I don't think I want them either... I want something clean and beautiful, and good for my fish.

If you dont want to use chemicals for your plants youd have to change your substrate to this meathod using potting soil. It even really helps with water changes too! If someone else nows this method do shair it please cuz I wanna try it too!
