I'm curious Tourmaline, what is your favorite tank plant and why?

I don't really have a vast knowledge of plants, but so far I really like Crypts. They're low light so I can stick them in pretty much any of my tanks without having to worry about fancy lighting.

I got some craft mesh! >:D I'm going to make those little floating hideaways for my tanks. I hope they like them, I think I'll enjoy this little project. And I hope I got enough for 8 of them..

I'll attach pictures when I'm done, my 4G is finally working after two months, so uploading pictures doesn't take forever.

Does anyone want to see pictures of my Bettas? I can actually upload them now.

I'm in love with him too. He's the best pet store find I have, his fins grew like crazy after I got him. His personality is amazing too.

I really love Sebastian. Still no progress on the fin rot, unfortunately. I'm all out of medications to try. I'm not sure what to do at this point..

I just got home so I'm going to start with the craft mesh hideaway in a few hours. I did some measurements and I got too much, actually. x.x I'm going to have a whole sheet left over. I may make some moss covered ground hideaways to put on the gravel at a later date.

I got another snail, a Zebra Nerite this time. This was a test.. I put him in Azure's tank. Azure is known for being a crazy, murderous, evil, fish. I distracted him with food while I dropped the snail in the back of his tank behind a plant, and he didn't notice it for a few hours. I left, and I come back, and the snail is racing across the front of his tank eating all the algae, and Azure has no care in the world, not even acknowledging those tasty feelers all my other Bettas love biting off.

I just sat there in stunned silence thinking, "WHERE IS MY AZURE AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HIM?"

Tourmaline I was wondering, have you tried melafix? I know there are people that say to stay away from "fix" products, and then there are others that say they are fine. What do you think?

They are all gorgeous.

Have you compared bacterial to fungal fin rot? I think bacterial is the fin actually disintegrating, which is what you're describing. Hmm.
