Be sure to seperate your posts tho, wouldn't want to log on and see all the beta posts have killed each other.

Hi, welcome to Houston Betta Box

Hopefully this will become a place where we can all share information on how to care for and raise Bettas (Siamese Fighting Fish)

For those of you who are new to bettas, *They come from Thailand and the surround area, they breath air so you can keep them in small containers with out air pumps and filters. *Because they breath air they can tolerate muddy or green water but that doesnot mean that they can survive when the amonia or nitrite levels get excessive. * They spawn in *82 deg water but will tolerate room temp so you don't need a heater. * They are carniverous (eat meat) and love live food that wiggles. * They look great in a glass vase with a plant but give them a path to the surface so they can breath. * Feed them high proteen food (don't expect them to eat the plant roots) And change their water weekly, with declorinated water.

A few females make a colorful addition to a comunity tank. *They will seek cover in the plants and decorations and wait in ambush for that insect that dares to land on the surface or the small snail that crawls out into the open.

Males are teritoral, like a big old bear, they will fight to keep other bettas out of their teritory, but in a comunity tank their long flowing fins often become a target for the tank bully. *Males are best kept in a 1/2 galon or larger container *by themselves.

Today was the March Meeting of BettaHabari - the Houston Area Betta Breeders at my home in Texas City. *Quite a drive for some of our members.
We had a great time. *Good food, Good drinks and great company. * Plans were made for our International show this comming labor day.
Next month's meeting will be canceled so that we can attend the HAS auction. *Fish, cultures, plants and experiences were changed and a good time was had by all.

I missed it. Are you guys going to start announcing your events with the other Southeast Texas Aquarists clubs? Anyone can suggest a calender event you know.

Yeah, I would love to have your club use this site for discussions. Either way, the offer is still open to create a forum for you to fill everyone in on your club.

Thankyou
yes I relayed your offer to the other members and got a so-so response.
the end result was an agreement to continue our Yahoo site and also accept your offer to host us. * We would like to use both locations for a while - at least untill everyone gets a better feel for the difference.

The longest journey begins with a single step. Cool.
