    Vern's been chugging around the bottom of the tank for the past couple days, but then yesterday I found him upside down on the bottom.

  7. How many betas are needed for a pond/artificial lake?

I've seen lots of people with koi ponds, which led me to wonder if anyone has a betta pond. My grandparents have a small artificial lake in their ranch, and when they filled...
