    I would like to breed but I am not at the moment. I want to learn about the Betta first. I am finding this to be a fascinating new world and I just guess I want to learn first.

  1. I don't know the exact name for this but I do know that I had this very slime on some of my driftwood and the two recommendations I got on getting rid of them was 1) Boiling the wood, and 2) Putting an Otto Catfish in. I think that may imply that it's some sort of algae? I'd be interested to know exactly what this is called.
  2. Ugh Riff. It's a guppy... not a Betta. Tsk tsk.
  3. First things first, I think we are all glad to hear that your girl is alive and well. Secondly, I would do some more reading around this forum before attempting a fry. The eggs that your female carries are useless without the male. Removing her from the tank doesn't help her have babies. She needs to wrap with the male and he needs to pick up the eggs and place them in his bubble nest. She'll even help him do this. She will more than likely sustain some damage during their mating ritual but there will be a time when it is appropriate to remove her and it's after she's dropped the eggs. Y
  4. I don't know about the dwarf Gourami but I was speaking to a person that breeds the hatchback Gourami and he told me he wouldn't have anything less than 5 together. He also said they do better in a tank that doesn't get disturbed often. Seem to be easily stressed. It might be something to look into.
  5. I'm definitely planning to come. I don't think I'll bring any of the troupe along but I'm definitely hoping to make it. :P
  6. Thank you all!! I'm glad you guys are liking them as much as I am! There are some others here too but getting their pictures would have been a little altogether very difficult. All in all, they are pretty striking. I've really just been happy with all the fish I have gotten! As far as spawning... I'm just waiting on a few tanks to come to me (should be in the next couple of weeks) and then I'll throw a whole batch together. Put together 2 or 3 spawns and see how that goes. The Purple Dragons will be in that spawn, as will the Copper Dragons that came with my first lot of fish. Thanks
  7. Purple Dragon Half Moon Male Purple Dragon Female Copper Double Tale Mustard Gas (Not the most flattering shot of him but I love this fish and I love this shot!) Mustard Gas Female! Love the color on these girls!! Thanks a million, someone!! tail*
  8. It sounds like you have come to the right place. Welcome to the forum and good luck with your Betta!
  9. He's a very pretty young man, isn't he? Welcome to the forum!
  10. Thank you someone, for clearing that up! I'll get onto Adrian straight away! I'm in love with every single one of my fish. :P
  11. I do! She's pretty tiny at the moment but a feisty little girl so we'll see what happens. I'll keep you updated!
  12. I bought him as a dumbo and his Pectorals are a little bigger than most of my other males although I kind of just thought they would grow more, his partner certainly doesn't have them so you could very well be right. These are all from Adrian and there is still one that I haven't posted because he is extremely difficult to photograph but i very much like him! He's definitely a metallic of some sort. Some of the girls are still a bit young and small. I also removed that Plakat dumbo and my Sorority is VERY peaceful now! Even my new girls have no fin damage and they are only tiny littl
  13. Hey Ness! Interestingly enough, I actually thought of the best way to get attention to this topic without encroaching on Vic or Melbourne Betta. I really should have just said "New Betta in Melbourne". I'll make a mental note for further change. Is this the right place to post a notice like this? I'm actually glad it got your attention anyway. With the orange boy, I thought it was a bit of a metallic overlay up close. I know you can't see that in the picture but I will say that his color was actually a deeper orange than you see there. As soon as he was settled he became this SUPER rich
