Re: Bettas one male and two females - together or apart? #611
the ones that the guy showd me were most definatly female there were 6 of them all swimming in a shole but it looked more like a pack (que jurassic park) of rapters they were in with some swords so they could swim rings happily around the bettas

Re: Bettas one male and two females - together or apart? #612
I have herd reports about over aggressive female bettas from my LFS i was talking to one of the tank monkeys there about kinds of live food i could introduce dave to and he told me about the amount of female bettas being returned because they are ripping the male bettas to shreds, some of the more experianced advisors seem to think that the aggression has been bread in to them.

Re: Bettas one male and two females - together or apart? #616
I have a male CT betta and he lives with a small shole of corydoras hastatus and 2 apple snails he seems happy active and very responsive to new tank decor every few weeks he also has hours of fun swimming through a cave i have in one end and out the other he looks pleased with himself. i tryed some larger (similar size to the betta) fish in with him and he just hid and swam away from these fish (they are now living with a friend. i'd be intorested to find out how the male and females get on in a larger tank would the male be horny all the time and blow lots of bubble nests or is it a cycle thing?

Re: Betta trouble? #617
My betta which i have had for a similar time was a nice light cream colour with a slight marble so he looked different depending on what angle you looked at him i have been feeding him on a varied diet dryed flake, bloodworm, betta pellets and peas, but over the last couple of weeks he seems to be developing a darker pigmented body and the fins are becoming lighter it does not seem to be causing him any discomfort he still swims around the tank and builds bubble nests regularly, on the betta forums that i have used before nobody thinks this is a problem just him adapting to his new diet and environment. if you find out other whise can you let me know i wanna catch anything befor is causes damage if it is anything that is.

Re: 40 ltr Tropical tank needs bottom feeders/plecos????? #618
Thanks for that im thinking of some dwarf cory to keep my betta company and i also have some cherry shrimp which are damn amusing to watch they swimm around and round then straight in to the tank walls or harass my betta he seems to get much amusement chasing these little guys round the tank and when he gets close he just stops and looks at it is funny.

I have been offered a larger tank from a work mate but he wants to give me the fish also and i just dont think that i have the room! but we will see when i get a box made up to the dimensions of the tank. hope fully i will have room (just got a shed so lots of my crap can go in there leaving a fairly large space hopfully i can get a tank in there).

thanks for the words of encouragement lizz

Re: 40 ltr Tropical tank needs bottom feeders/plecos????? #619
i would love a huge tank and all the fish i want but as mik n keif said you cant always get what you want. but at the moment the only problem is space i could maybe go to 60ltrs but that would be cramped and would risk being damaged by the boys and their friends. so untill i can get a larger property or find some space somewhere i'll have to make do but if i am carfull then i'm sure 4o will be a happy tank

Re: 40 ltr Tropical tank needs bottom feeders/plecos????? #620
i thaught that i had read it right

back to the corys you said that they like to shole in 6+ do you think that 6 would be excessive in my size tank?

and would they eat the veg too?
