    Going to my first ever fish expo!

    So I took a couple pictures, but unfortunately forgot to get one of the coral room, which was super cool. I got a free shirt and cooler bag! They were also selling Chick-fil-a. Bought this Anubias nana pinto. Huge hollow driftwood that sadly didn’t sell. Would have definitely bought it if I...

    10 Gallon Tank I am a newbie with a betta

    What is the best beginner betta breed?

    If you are choosing between the two you mentioned, I would do the delta for the reasons already mentioned. Overall though, I would recommend a plakat. They tend to be more active and less likely to have fin issues.

    How has shipping been in terms of delays?

    Betta rubra shipped out on Tuesday and got them on Thursday with 2-3 priority USPS. Went from the west coast to the east coast.

    Betta albimarginata Sebuku Collected (Now there are eggs!)

    It’s been a bit! Sold some pairs and females and have some more fry growing out. I ended up keeping the bossy female for breeding since she has attractive white edging on her fins. I’ll be at the Carolina expo in late October with these guys and plants. In other news, I’ve acquired a pair of...

    10 Gallon Tank Fun stocking for 10g?

    I would do three to try and even any territorial disputes. Most of the ones sold are male, although females with males would be ideal.
