Hi my name is Chris. I've been in the hobby for a few months. It all started when I went in the LFS
to look around. I saw 2 Tomato Clown fish and I said "I coming back to buy them". So the next day I came to the store grabbed a 2, mabe 3 gallon tank and told the casheer I wanted 2 clown fish. "Clown Fish need a realy big saltwater tank.", she said. At that time the only experience I had with fish were tadpoles that I had a couple years ago. (I know that tadpoles aren't fish) So I looked around and I saw it. A beautiful blue and green male betta. I grabbed it along with a starter kit. I brought him home and read tons of pages about bettas online. By the end of the day, I knew almost everything about them. But one betta wasn't enough. A few days later I was at the Walmart Supercenter. I searched and searched for the aquariums and there I found it! A pretty pink female with cellophane fins. I grabbed her bowl and payed. A week later I was at my friend's house and she had a 5 gal
tank. Of corse I took it when she offered. So I kept them, fed them, watched them. Then I went to Petsmart and got breeding supplies. The 3 day long experiment failed. So a couple weeks later I went to the LFS
again to get a heater. I came back with 2 goaldies, a powerfilter, conditioner, gravel, an airstone, and a bill of almost $60. Well I cycled the tank and put them in. About a week later one of them got stuck under the airstone, and passed
Then just three days ago I change the water to my bettas bowl and he seemed to have a seisure and, like goaldie, passed
But no, thats not the end of my story, today I woke up to find my Redcap Oranda's tail caught in the tube of my filter
Three deaths in one week.
But I'll be getting more fish, breeding, and enjoying the hobby untill I
Comet + 2 other Goldies=5 gal
w/ mini powerfilter
PS What's the deal with "Kudos"
