    I have a tendency to tinker with my tanks. Unfortunately this equates to fish dying quicker. The ones I leave alone and forget live longer Lol

    I'm assuming you mean messing with the chemistry?? I'm also assuming you did something to your water to get this ram to live that long? I made it almost a year with some balloon rams. Later I made it about 6mths and after that I said never again to that species. I just like them too much to have them for such a short time and not see them thrive.

    My problem is I like to rearrange decor and do massive water changes. These guys seem to have done better in a 40 gallon breeder with a bunch of plants a small weekly water change . I barely cleaned the glass. Old established water with infrequent feedings. There was a period of 4 months that I didn't even see them, until I cleaned the glass and moved the large pice of drift wood.

    New here so sorry if it's a dumb question but- who's Don? I'm guessing he breeds bettas?
    All this talk about different kinds of bettas is getting me interested in getting a new setup.(Impulsive, I know huh?)

    Don use to work at the Fish Gallery and now he works at ADG. He's well known in aquarium circles here in Houston. He's got connections and contacts with all sorts of importers of fish.

    There are many species of labyrinth fish and nanids. Some are the easiest fish to keep. While others are challenging for the experts.
    They can be as small as a few millimeters to over a foot.

    I raised beta's outside and had a 55gal tank that I raised a spawn in. I left the most of the males in here tank to grow up. It had lots of plants and the fish did fine here. but I would not put multiple adult males together in even a large tank.
