I should have said "some have said", not "someone had said".

aemaki; Yes, he has a heater. The water temp is 80-82. And no ammonia according to the test. I think he needs more hiding spaces.

JBonez; No theme as of yet. xP The no metal thing has to do with metal rusting and then poisoning your fish. Don't have to worry about that with PVC though.
Also, your fish look awesome.

Slightly unrelated, but: Wal-Mart had a betta in a cup (like they do) and it was labeled as a female betta but she was HUGE. Does that mean she was mislabeled or could it just be a large female? Should I get her to flare and check for a beard? xD

It's possible they are Giant Females. When I lived in Alaska, I found quite a few that were easily 3 inches long. I got 3 very large females from there. One of them, I was told by people on here, was actually a HM and not a VT. They would get in beautiful ones- ones you would find on AB. Too bad no one cared for them.

I hope this doesn't seem out of place, but I've noticed that the Petsmart near my house seems to be stocking their shelves with (possibly) juveniles. I'm not sure if these guys are really fry (they were TINY, but not smaller than my thumbnail) or if they're skinny because they aren't being fed enough, or even if their growth was stunted due to inadequate living conditions. They were having a promotion where all bettas were cheaper (all of the male veiltails were gone!) and I was sorely tempted to invest in an escpecially tiny female that was the smallest betta I've ever seen (her fins were either clamped or she was a fry who was still developing her adult fins).....I didn't end up taking her with me because I already found a betta that I wanted to adopt (welcome to the family, Declan!) but I wonder how she is. I feel terrible about it now because she was so small...

I've seen some really small females at my local Petsmarts too. =/

If I had more money, I would have a ton of tanks and snag all the little ones and all the sick ones and keep them until I found responsible owners.
