im glad that you like it. i teach k - 12 art in a little montana town. i try to be very diverse for my little ones. i got my sorority tank started last night and it is awesome sitting there watching all of them.
teaching in a small town sounds nice, and the little ones are blessed to have you from the little I've seen so far about you and your art.
The betta girls are very interesting to watch I think. Most of the time, very peaceful. I started mine in a 6 gal that wasn't big enough or planted enough, so lots of my girls have chunks missing from their fins. I sit in front of mine more and more, with the camera.
mine have a 30 gallong with tons of plants and hidyholes. i bought a petco female with absolutely no tail at all when i bought her. its why i got her. she is a toughy.
my new male i got 2 days ago was making bubblenests last night already, so he will be up to bat for a spawn!! i need a really goo ct female. one of mine is ok, but i want to get a dragon crowntail.. hopefully as dark as poosible. been lurking the forums for a lead and aquabid. do you know anyone in the states opther than chard56. he ways his will be old enough to ship next month but i have to wait to breed her after i get her.
