Yay! The bestest thread is back! Just don't discuss bans and start a new one when this thread gets too long!

Thank you so much for starting this! I'd say at about 50 pages, we start a new thread, and title it, "The bestest thread on fishlore. 2.1" That way we have a good name every time (2.2, 2.3, etc.) and it doesn't get complicated.

Always keep in mind that these threads are accessible by anyone in the world. But other than that... let's get to it!

Thanks for starting this AcornTheBetta! I missed the Bestest thread on Fishlore (1.0) even though I didn't participate in it much, I still enjoyed reading other members' posts.
The plan to start a new thread at 50 pages sounds great!

I plan to set up 2 or 3 in the next 4-5 months when I start my betta breeding project. They'll all be breeding tanks so nothing fancy, but they're still tanks.

Yeah I guess I am technically prepared. I was not expecting it though lol. She doesn’t look that pregnant, but she definitely is.

The first picture is from yesterday and the second one is from just now.
The pups are definitely going to be adorable though

Ikr, yet they have fish that are 2x smaller than bettas and say they need 10 gallons minimum. The higher temp is actually good, but... the lower temp is really bad.

As you said, Exhibit A:
EDIT: Mod remove photo, says that guppies need at least a 20g.

The life span is also half what it should be (5 years). Ok. Not half but you get the point. Yeah the bottom temp is um..... yeah

She gave birth to 2 female pups earlier this morning. Unfortunately, both of them didn’t make it. I don’t think Coco realized she was pregnant. She killed both pups
My dad found them when he was giving Coco food. I decided to name them Mocha and Mochi. R.I.P.

Edit:
She didn’t kill them. They were most likely stillborn. She would of been such a good mom Even though they most likely died during birth, she still cleaned them

Random thing: What if bettas could fly and live just as long as us? I think it would be really fun, though I would constantly be scared my bettas would just leave.

They would probably be like butterflies lol. Bettas are also pretty easy to train and I think they’ll stick around as long as you give them food hilarious

I also use tables for all of my aquariums. Its over my budjet to buy any stands

anyone here know about aqueon filters that stay in the aquarium? Im thinking of getting some of those because they don't have a risk of overflowing and stuff

bah, they do still overflow. I thought I was safe, but the filter clogged and overflowed while I wasn't home, backing up over the cord and flowing down. I lost only about a 1/2" of water from a 10 gallon, but on my floor it looked disastrous, and ruined the wood stand.

Wow. I’ve been here almost two years, and I’m just over 150 posts. Sad thing is, I’m much more social on here than in person.

I guess these threads don’t count, so I have a few more than I thought. I’m sure it’s still not many.

Lol. Maybe. You never know. When I was going to the LFS this idiot decided he was in the wrong lane right when the light turned and he tried to merge with the lane next to use. The only problem was that we were on a very busy street and now me and my dad are stuck behind this idiot with a whole line of cars behind us trying to merge onto a super busy street.

Does anyone do spray paint art? If so could you recommend some supplies and a good setup? Also, what do you think a reasonable price for spray paint art is? Thanks! Lol I feel like I'm just talking to no one.

I’ve spray painted things before, but I’ve never really made art with it. I usually get the spray paint from Walmart, but Micheals has a bigger color selection.

i've spray-painted rc car bodies before but haven't made any super complex art with it. if i'm doing a 2-tone paintjob i use masking tape to mask off the parts you want to stay the first color before you put the second color, but i don't know how to really do artwork. i always just painted them outside with some newspapers or a cardboard box to stop the deck from getting painted.
