gbose: Thanks so much for your reply!! I used to have a big 10gallon aquarium when I had one Betta - then I swithed to oddly named goldfish and now I'm back to Betta's ... but because I have two, I went with the AquaBoxes instead - but skaura8 has pointed me into a good direction for neat looking tanks that are bigger then what I have and what Andrew has - so I'm hoping to pick up two for me and one for him - our fish deserve better/bigger homes! I hate seeing them in small spaces without a doubt!! I've always had somewhat large tanks for them - at one point I had 3 Betta's at once and they were in these neat plastic Betta tanks - they were decently sized but no filter. Both Andrew and I would like to have a filter, that's for sure.
skaura8: I will for sure be in touch if I or Andrew come up with any other questions over time. Thanks so much for being willing to answer anything that we may come up with!
thePWNISHER: I know what you mean about small spaces... I am pretty much cooped up in my room at home in Calgary and then when I come to my brothers home in Edmonton, he just lives in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor! The living room at his place at least has a big patio door and stuff - so that helps, but it's still a really small space... especially when you have 2 adults and one 2.5yr old Boarder Collie/German Shepherd in the place, haha. But we manage!
I love my boys, Samuel and Tyler more than anything! I had Samuel first then I decided I wanted to have another one so I went back out and got Tyler. I'd love to own more - they are awesome! And like I have said previously, Samuel is very attentive to me and I spend lots of time with them. They sit on the 2nd shelf of my desk in my room - so I see them every morning and every night for sure and then any time I am sitting at my desk or laying in my bed =) They are spoiled too.
Actually, that brings me to another question... they used to have silk plants in their homes but I had to get rid of them because they eventually got to a point where I couldn't clean them or get the smell out of them.... what are opinions on real plants for them? Just curious - have always wondered if silk or real would be better for them. Ideas?
