  1. Cool idea, I look forward to seeing your progress I'm happy you've found the Bettas4all Standard useful I'm not keeping fish at the moment, but hopefully I'll get back into it in the future.
  2. Looking great, Les. As far as the chimney idea goes, have you thought of also adding an air intake pipe that runs underground to provide cool air? Otherwise whatever new air the chimney drags into the room would be warm from directly outside. The chimney would need a plug for winter too, I imagine.
  3. As far as I can find, the genus name cannot be pluralized in the formal sense, but when it's used in colloquial English, it can be. The proper Latin way to pluralize "betta" is "bettae", but that sounds silly. Personally I am in favor of using "Vic Betta". :P
  4. Try some melafix. Make sure his water never contacts other fish. The jumping female is now suspect too. You can try to cut the head-lump off, but it will just regrow. Hopefully there is a medication that can treat this, so good luck.
  5. Thanks for your kind feedback about my Betta models and website, Ness and Sarah, I really appreciate it :D

    I made the models using Autodesk Maya, over a period of about 7 months. I made the body first, then the fins, and then modified the fins for each fin type. All the modeling was done in polygon mode, and the entire project was a learning curve, as I was new to 3D digital modeling...

  6. Hey Stephan,

    I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for your website, the models of correct form are really important (form is a focus of mine, as a new hobby breeder/keeper)

    I've found your site to be really informative.

    :) all the best.

  7. Whatever it is, if you want to breed her, do it asap. If it's a tumour, there's likely nothing you can do to get rid of it and it will keep growing. If you do breed her, breed her to a male you don't mind catching the disease if it's contagious, don't breed him or keep him with other fish, and keep an eye on the offspring.
  8. http://ausaqua.net/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=active "Today's active content" in the last panel on the forum main page, above the "active users"/"Board Statistics" area. It doesn't reverse "mark all as read" but it bypasses it.
  9. Yes, a few holes in the sides should be enough Also, occasionally dismantling the pots and giving them a swirl after a jar WC would help.
  10. Looks cool Is there water flow through the clay pots? It could be problematic if anaerobic microbes are able to grow in there.
  11. A few weeks ago I had to throw out 4 of my grindal cultures because a blowfly had managed to lay her maggots through the air holes of my culture lids. If you don't have a lid, pets will get in, and the worms will crawl out. I am thinking of keeping all my culture containers inside a large plastic tub, with air holes in each culture lid, and large holes in the tub lid covered by cotton wool.
  12. If you can't find them, I'm sure you could make something similar using plastic, metal or glass.

    Lock Jaw

    Unfortunately, it's permanent. Eventually he'll starve to death or be eaten by his bigger siblings. You might as well try to fix his jaw. We might learn something from it.
  14. It absolutely can affect crowntails. http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=140902&d=1127242409 (or http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3539385&postcount=1 )
