  1. Need to clear out a tank or two, so bulk purchases preferred, but if you're really after just a few, let me know. 1. Various tiger, and tiger/lyre tail x, and black bar, $1 each for min of 20 and I will throw in whatever babies I accidentally net. 2. Native/black bar $1.50 or $20 for 20-25 including juveniles. Pick up only in Greenslopes
  2. I see this (though not the set up, obviously) at least weekly. Does this not happen with everyone's bettas? I keep wilds (mainly in the splendens complex, though) and they're amazing jumpers; really strong bodies. They can also clear 10+cm pretty easily. One has actually jumped through the tank lid; that is, his body was muscular enough to dislodge the acrylic cover. Now I use cling film. eta: that is a really cool paludarium-type set up, though.
  3. A guy did a version of a dirted tank with sweet potato as a filter. the whole project is up on youtube (if link doesn't work, search Foo the Flowerhorn sweet potato). From memory, it was pretty effective and the roots were amazing (he had wild betta so heavy root system was great coverage), but the sweet potato disintegrated after a while. So possibly worth replacing the potato (but then you might have swings while you wait for new roots to establish) from time to time? Or having a few in at varying times to be able to rotate through the mushy ones? Keen to hear how it goes.
  4. Mahachai, imbellis, and stiktos. And if the isolation continues, I suspect I'll venture into mouthbrooders. Breeding but only unintentionally. What do you keep?
  5. Hello all, Into fish, specifically wild bettas, but I have endlers, corys, and some shrimp. Also carnivorous plants, if anyone has utrics or waterwheel/aldrovanda. Two months into self imposed isolation and I am losing my mind. Thank God I have these fish to distract and amuse me, and also to dress up and reenact episodes of Prime Suspect. Otherwise I think my sanity would have completely unravelled.
