    Red Cambodian pair

    Day 3 (since hatching) They are free swimming already! And of course I’m not ready to feed them. Why would I be? I’ve only given that advice a few hundred times. Had to rush around searching for air pump, airline, connectors, so that I could get a rough brine shrimp hatchery going.

    Hello

    Welcome Adele. Hope we’ll see you at the upcoming Victoria Betta show. We’re all socially inept. Seems to come with the territory.

    Hello

    Hi im a socially inept awkward artistic person who likes fighting fish. I used to breed discus until I gained a severe back injury. I like painting and making jewellery. I run a business part time in making jewellery and am finishing my schooling with that this coming year. I have 3 cats jynx pippin and flash. Like my fish they are my world. I am based in melbourne and ideally would like to breed bettas particularly half moons. I have a soft spot for mustard gas, dragons and coppers. Im pretty boring really lol. I am pleased to make your acquaintance.

    In that case we should keep track of how easily this line spawns. We might be able to transfer that trait.

    Red Cambodian pair

    It’s been a long time since my last spawn. Everything was just getting too much for a while there. Quite a while. More than three years. It’s good to be back. The parents of this spawn were bred by Shane and Joel of Betta Spectra. I’m told to expect a lolly bag. Pair introduced very late at night on Wednesday 17/10/2018 after only about 3-4 days conditioning. Didn’t use a chimney they were in adjacent tanks and I simply uncarded them. They were put together before I went to bed and the lights turned off. It had been raining for a couple of days and the moon was waxing (1st quarter). Not sure exactly when they spawned. I only noticed the eggs on Friday night and there were tails on Saturday. Made a little YouTube to celebrate hahaha.

    Is this site even still active

    Sorry. Yes, it’s been pretty inactive here. For what it’s worth (probably not much) you’re approved now.

    Hi everyone!! I haven't got any fish at the moment, but I've kept them in the past for a long time. I had to sell all of them and my tanks as I moved from Tasmania to Melbourne! But now I'm here, I'm ready for a small tank with a boy betta. I'm currently (trying to!) save money to get everything I need - sooner rather than later hopefully, I always feel like cycles take forever. If anyone here could give me some advice on where I could get an affordable/quality tank and accessories as well as somewhere I could find a nice looking betta I would love you forever!! I will be studying later on in the year (hence the move), I'm super excited about the opportunities to come. It's lovely to be a part of this forum, I look forward to chatting to you all at some point!

    Calling wild keepers

    Hi all, its been along time since anyone really posted and I'd like to do a "pulse check" on the wild betta keepers in Australia. With the new import rules coming into play, I've seen less and less wilds available. With that in mind... If you're currently keeping bettas, please raise your hand with the list of bettas you are keeping

    Hi from Melbourne!

    Hi all, I'm a Kiwi currently living in Melbourne, Australia and I've been keeping betta fish for almost 5 years now. It all started for me with little blue veil tail betta I picked up from a small local pet store. I purchased a tiny 9L tank, undergravel heater, gravel, food, water conditioner and a fake plant and went on my way. A few days later I stumbled upon a betta care site and realised the horrific errors I had made! Eventually I set things straight at that little blue betta who I named Keidis lived happily for over 3 years (not long compared to some betta but I don't think it's too bad for my very first!). Almost 5 years later and I now have 3 tanks (don't have space for much more in my house), I also keep a 75L container pond which is home to a few white cloud mountain minnows and a freshwater mussel. I currently have 2 x 38L tanks, one home to a blue and red crowntail male betta (Nebula), the other home to what I think is a salamander type dumbo delta tail male betta (Armand) and several red cherry shrimp (the same population I've had for 4 years now). I also have a 68L tank that is currently home to a yabby (no name, I just call it the snippy shrimp) and more red cherry shrimp but I have dreams of having a giant or king betta in there. All my tanks are heated, filtered (either sponge or HOB) and have live plants. My setups are low tech, I don't use CO2 and only use bottled fertiliser and root tabs for my plants. The lighting is basic LEDs. All my plants are low light/low tech, such as Amazon sword, Cryptocoryne, Anubias and Elodea. Anyway thanks for letting my join!

    Hi everyone. I'm new to your forum and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Tommy and I'm originally from the USA in louisiana. I just recently got back into aquariums due to being disabled and needing something to do that will keep me from getting cabin fever lol. I started off with just a little betta fish in a 9 litre tank but after a few months he developed a really bad case of fin rot that I was unable to cure and the poor little guy died. So I went to my local pet store and started looking for other fish for my little 9 litre tank. The problem I ran into is a 9 litre tank doesn't hold the amount of fish that I soon wanted to have lol. So now I have my 9 litre tank and a 57 litre tank and a 28 litre tank for quarinteen. I use my 57 litre tank for a community tank with 8 guppies, 3 rasbora, 2 mystery snails, 4 Chinese algae eaters, a few ghost shrimp and a few red cherry shrimp. The 57 litre tank also has a few plants in it to keep the fish happy. My 9 litre tank I decided to use for breeding my red cherry shrimp which has been successful. There are lots of little babies swimming around in it now. One of my guppies had also had babies, 60 of them lol. I gave a few to friends and used the rest to feed my goldfish because the tank just wasn't big enough for all those fish. I did keep 1 baby just cause she was too cute to use for fish food lol. As if the aquariums weren't enough, I decided to make a little back deck goldfish pond also lol. So it seems that I am a bit addicted to fish lol. I'm looking forward to all of the future discussions. Oh by the way I now live in Seaford, Vic.
