  1. Hi there Trashlass. Welcome to the forum. I think I saw in the Melbourne Betta Breeders group on Facebook that a couple people had spawns.

You never know what gems you might find. What colours and tail types are you particularly fond of?

I’m being given a 4ft tank today that I’m planning on using as a sump for a recir

  4. Wow! How slack am I? My last post in this thread was 24/07/2013 and I never took the final photos. Of course "final" is completely misleading. It just means the point where I had to stop building and start fishkeeping. So let's do a bit of catch up on what's been happening in here. I did finish the final central rack and it held my beanie boxes for jarring males. I did not set up a recirculating filtration system for the beanie boxes. So I just had to do individual water changes and we all know how tough that is. I had planned to set up two big tubs for ageing water. This did not get done
