    Yes, Bettas
  1. =O i did EXACTLY the same thing when i was a bit younger... the exact same plastic shell-shaped pond as well! only ours had 2 goldfish and these wild guppies that died.... =( i must say you did a much greater job than me. yours is beautiful! seeing all those little bettas swimming around the place =)
  2. Hey fishkeepers/fishies! I already own a 20L heated, planted, filtered aquarium with a single male betta. My younger brother has a short, wide (its longer one way than it is wide) octagonal aquarium that holds around 11L from a few years back when he (unsuccessfully) kept a few goldfish in there (poor things - we didn't know any better though).

  5. Hey all. I was just wondering... Would anybody here be able to help me out with this plant? I'm not sure what sort of plant it is, although ive seen it loads of times at LFS etc (i got it form the wild a few weeks ago) and its grown really quickly... I've been dosing my tank with this stuff called Plant Food once a week. Anyone know how i should go about trimming it, i'm wanting it to grown more in a cluster than the huge long thing across my tank i have now. (oh and just in case it's the dark green one that dominates it at the moment =P) Also, what would be some good ideas for other
