I'm thinking she means that they will grow in just plain ol' untreated tap water...not that they are literally coming from the water hose...cause that would be just plain scary O.O

I don't think you have to do anything special to get mosquito larvae...They show up in just about any standing water here...lol

Oh, phew. That WOULD be like a horror movie. Haha, we could get together as an amateur film crew and make a horror movie only betta lovers would be afraid of. Tiny tanks, dirty water, fin rot, popeye, the horror, the horror!

Everything is much cheaper in the USA than Canada :) The cheapest tank I can find here over a 1g with lights and a filter is the 1.5g Tetra, which is $29. Then $14 for a heater, $14 for plant and $12 for a decoration. I have tons of rocks around the house, but I don't like using rocks in small tanks since I suction the filth out everyday :) Then add $7 for the Betta. I refuse to put mine in whatever they will fit in LOL I want nice tanks that look good. I'd rather spend more on great care and have 4, than have 12 in minimal care. Nothing against others who have that many!! And I also have a house full of critters and two kids who need my time and money too :) And bills.. urgh bills.

Lucky you at $14 per fish!

Jezzz Marina 2.65g is $68 and that doesn't include anything. 3g Kritter Keepers are about 3 with nothing as well.
