    Totally confused about stocking

    On the very occasion you will find a betta with a bad attitude these are the ones that will have a go at anything, betta are similar to oscars in that they all have there own personality they can be more like a dog at times in that they learn who feeds them etc etc Betta are very misunderstood...

    Totally confused about stocking

    Agree with above your not over stocked imo id say your near the limit and the only thing I would say is that the betta is unsuitable for 2 reasons first the filter is to powerful betta really dont do well long term in water flow and second keeping betta with tetras is not a good idea as most of...

    Plecos in planted aquaria

    Ouch not good, I used to get alot from them when I bred fish but that was 6 years ago now, the only other place I could suggest is rare aquatics in crewe, along way from cornwall but they do mail order and have a great reputation

    There are many striking fish....

    Galaxy rasbora / celestial pearl danio, when healthy and fully coloured take some beating, also as an ex betta breeder I will always have a soft spot for half moon plakats (hmpk) :)

    Daphnia from the local pond.

    I used to collect my own and put them in a 50l container in the garden then when I needed them for fry just net some out and fed direct to the tanks, never had any problems at all

    gourami vs betta

    I bred betta for many years and have seen similar questions no end of times, betta are not a pair fish and should never be kept in groups of pairs, other people will give a different opinion but honestly it will end in either a dead fish or a badly beaten fish if your set on the betta species...
