You found your way to The Big And The Small Things, more specifically the part about aquariums, and some of the creatures that belong in the wet element.
The pages you will find, are most of all made for myself, as they are used as a collection of knowledge about the things that interests me, and in the aquarium world it will most of all be about betta fish and various catfish.
Currently I have 3 male betta fish and 1 female, as well as about 60 fry swimming around. These are living in 7 tanks, where the males and the female go by themselves, however with the company of some ancistrus. In total there are 8 aquariums, and in the last one reside a butterfly plecostomus, along with some neon and amber tetra.
The oldest of the bettas I have at the time being is Napoleon. Napoleon is the father of the first batch of fry, born in early October. He is currently living alone in a 10 liter (2.6 gallon) tank while waiting for his new home to be set up. He enjoys himself, but also gets a lot of attention, and is tame enough to be feeded by hand.
Then Sonic arrived. Sonic is the aggressive type, and can't let the other fish in the tank alone, from time to time he is hunting the ancistrus, but they are too fast for him, and have a lot of places to hide, so it is not much of a problem.
The newest of the male bettas is called Hercules, and is relatively quiet and calm, and likes to explore his aquarium, which in turn is also filled with caves, cracks and crevices. He goes well with the ancistrus who is his cellmate.
