Don't worry - I'm not aspiring to invertebrates! I've got enough problems with the fish.

I've found a local Betta breeder so will get one from him. I'm starting to think that fish are a lot more like hamsters: get them from a reputable breeder rather than a generic pet shop; don't believe what the shop says about cages/care; and leave them for 24 hours to settle in. Ok, so there's the whole lack of fur, the not chewing their cages and the living in water thing, but apart from that they're pretty similar! Or maybe my fish tank's sending me a bit :daz:

It's been a while since I was last on here and my tank's been through a few changes. The breeder Betta (a beautiful red halfmoon) vanished mysteriously a week after he arrived and still has never been found. The pet shop betta who came next is thriving and helps hunt down the ever multiplying 'plant snails'. He loves hiding amongst the plants and zooms to the surface hoping for food whenever I go near.
This is how it currently looks:
Image
Tank: 25L Fluval Chi with original filter plus heater (Aqua Vital 25W)
Water: Bottled water/tap water mix with tapsafe, Nutrafin plant fertiliser and aqua carbon (and Indian Almond leaf)
Inhabitants: 1 x blue Betta splendens (?veiltail), 2 x zebra nerite snails, lots of silly little 'plant snails'
Plants: Anubias barteri var. nana, Hemianthus callitricoides “Cuba”, Echinodorus “Rosé”
Food: alternating Hikari pro betta gold and Atison's pellets and once a week some Tetra delica brine shrimp or freeze dried bloodworms. Half an algae wafer for the snails once a week.

Your tank looks good as does your betta.

You have been through a lot, losing all those fish. It is to your credit that you didn't give up! Lovely fish!
