    Just wondering if the new photo gallery was going to be merged. What I really love about these pics is I can actually see what you guys are talking about when you say clown loaches and tetras. before... I didin't have a clue about what these fish were. Does anyone know why tetras always seem to be in a small tupperware by themselves in the fish stores??

    Yes I see it a lot Emma. At fish stores and Wall Ma Part. I believe they are Teteras. They are real colorfull and long finned and are in little tupperwares. I saw once where they had a real small fishholder that attaches to the side of an aquarium and the fish was in there. They were real small only about 4 inches long. I asked the laday if it was sick but she said no they were agressive. Yeah it doesn't seem real humane but most of the tanks at wall mart seem a little overpopulated and I guess the fish will be adopted soon ... ;D ???

    ohhhhh, yeah tetras are not agressive and are schooling fish.
    I never guessed you could be talking about bettas...

    Oh Beckers maybe they were... They were real pretty fish though. Still seems kind of inhumane when they can't swim around..

    I am betting you are talking about male bettas. EVERY pet store keeps them isolated because they fight each other and any other long finned fish, but it is very true that it is very cruel and they usually do not take care of them properly. If you look at them they appear very depressed. :( :mad:
