  1. I've been meaning to share this story with people who would understand how happy it made me. So, I recently got a nice little crowntail boy who's living in a 6.6 gallon tank in my dorm. Would have loved a goldfish, but a betta was really the best choice possible. I made the mistake of letting my friends name him, so he's been christened Honey Boo Boo. :roll: I bought Boo at a Petco the day before I came to college, so I showed up to my dorm on the first day toting him in one of those little death trap cups. The students working the check-in were immediately like "fish! He's cute!" And then immediately proceeded to tell me that the cup could, under no circumstances, make a good home for a betta. I reassured them that his tank was going to be set up momentarily. Later, when I was in the process of doing just that, another staffer poked her head in the open door and made sure that his silk plants weren't plastic that could hurt his fins. Needless to say, I was a very happy fish lover! It's nice to meet people who really care. Just wanted to share the experience.
  2. I haven't! Just moved and I don't have fishy things over here that would be appropriate. I'm plotting. There's a ten gallon with this fish's nonexistent name all over it.
  3. So, some of you might remember me, but probably not. I used to post around here, was never particularly great or talented with goldfish (I kept getting feeder fish who were terribly ill, I'm inexperienced, etc. etc.), and then decided to stop keeping goldies after losing my beloved new fish, Flux, following last summer's hurricane. He was just starting to get better when the storm hit. He was at one place, I was hunkered down somewhere else, and when the power went off, he just didn't make it. I was pretty ripped up. I loved that fish. This is Flux: So I'm grabbing things for my dog, poking around in an entirely different store, when I see (link is a video, if that's a problem for anyone.)He's like Flux's long-lost twin, or something. I remember some people thought that Flux was pretty cool when I first posted him, so I figured I'd share for, you know, the good of the forum. not because I need any hardcore enabling or anything.
