Hi FC friends, Its the Betta Gang. Remember us? Boy have we missed you guys! Its been way to long, and im sorry i havent been able to blog. Mom still doesnt have a laptop, and this is the first time shes used one in a long time. Moms phone has internet but its to hard to respond to all the DC, SAC and FC blogs, so we will have to think of a new way to respond. We will be on whenever we can. We really do miss everyone. We hope to hear back from all of you.

Sterbai Cory
Wow, you have a lot of cores in this tank :). I bet they are over the moon with Cory happiness! Just curious, how much did you pay for your Sterbai? They are $10 each here!!! It was crazy but I purchased all 5 at once when a got them a while back ;)

Congratualtions on Set up of the week, love the tank and fish. Quick Cichlid question for you if you don't mind, what would you say is the minum tank size for dwarf Cichlids? I'm really thinking of setting up a tank for some but not having had anything to do with them before I'm looking for info. Have a good week and left you a vote.

Plant Anchors
Hi, I saw that Mike at mikeswetpets has "organic" non lead plant anchors. Ah darn. I just checked and he is out. You might want to contact him to see if he gets more in. I just did a search online and can only find leaded plant anchors.

And another vote here,
FYI, I ordered from Mikeswetpets two plants and decapped brine shrimp eggs. They arrived in 4 days Priority Mail ( To Alaska which is fast) in perfect shape as always and shipping was cheap. I received spiral crypocorne and green cabomba.

Hoping you can do the same in a month or two:)

Have a nice day,

Plants online and ...
I left you my recommendations that I have had good luck with in your other setup but had to cruise over here :) Wow, nice setups! I currently have 5 Corydoras Sterbae and just love them! And the salt & pepper are my favorite although I don't have then anymore.

Love your tank
Wow! Your tank is wonderful! How many gallons is it? I have a 125 gal that just finished it's cycle and the fish have been added. I see that you have 2 of the same fish that I have. Yes, cichlids are wonderful except when they get territorial. I have 2 Flamebacks that are terrors of the tank.
You got my vote!

its easy !!
if you want lots of replys all you have to do is go through the profiles and find ones that you like then reply one thing i do is keep an eye on the days its been sence theyve been active this means the chances of getting a speedy reply is better i think with a nice setup like yours people will have lots of questions or comments to leave and youll be on your way to an active site with lots to keep you going ive learned a lot from people and they are willing to share what they know which really makes it interactive and it just keeps on growing the interest in the hobby with the resources that youll get from people like web sites or books use this site to your advantage it can pay off big time if you can find time in the week some where when you can sit down and get into it youll find that its really good place to hang out for a while see you later as always left a vote P.S. forgot to mention that the more active you are the more points you will get if that is of any interest i see that youve been taking quizs and i think that is one of the best ways to get points bye for now

My cardinals get a pretty varied diet. I have mixed flakes, (spirulina, color enhancing and "regular"). I also use micro pellets which are made for small fish like tetras. Also, three times per week I give frozen treats; either brine shrimp, bloodworms, krill or spirulina/shrimp mix. They like the bloodworms the best.

What do you feed your cardinal tetras, cause they look very plump?!

Yeah, I've heard they can be a pain. Fortunately, my two have behaved perfectly for three months now. Completely eliminated my snail problem. I now add some occasionally so they can hunt. They like frozen bloodworms the rest of the time. Only ones they pester are each other. Just some good natured chasing and staring contests. I'm always checking my other fish for wounds though. If they ever spawn, (one each male and female, I THINK), things could get ugly.

Thanks to everyone for your votes and comments.

How are the puffers doing? I have been told they can be thuggish toward other fish?

Nice tank, left a vote.
