  1. Ah, Maggie... I'm SO sorry! 😔 Cyber hugs to you. Thank you for the awesome life you gave Cosmo. ❤
  2. Maggie, I'm so sorry that Cosmo isn't doing well. You have been so careful & determined to do what's best for him. Don't beat yourself up about the decoration. These things happen to everybody, and we learn from them. I'm hoping a smaller space, less stress, the salt & meds will have Cosmo feeling better soon. Please keep us updated. I know I've been absent for a while, but I do get email notifications on this thread & I'll be popping back in to see how things are going. Hugs to you & Cosmo, Alesha
  3. So sorry about your betta, H.K. I'm glad that it wasn't a total shock to you...hopefully that eases the pain a bit. One of the reasons that I hesitate to get bigger fish is that I know it will be harder to lose them...especially if that have any sort of personality. I know that sounds a little...Idk...weird? Sad? Pessimistic? Whatever. That's just how my brain works. 🙄😏 Welcome back home. Hoping you have a restful day today. 🙂
  4. Ah...I see! Wow, that's a lot of "to do" things on your To Do List!!! I hope everything goes well and according to plan. 🙂 The market down here in FL is insane too. There are huge orange groves that have been here since before I was born, that are being ripped out, roads being paved and houses going up, faster than I can even believe it. It's sad to me, because I prefer a rural community, and it is making our roads crazy busy! Traffic is baking up all the way to our road that we live on, from a major highway, at rush hour. And what used to take 7-8 minutes to get across town, now takes 20-25. I hate to see it. 😔 I wish you the best with your move...and hope it's hugely profitable for you! I'm sure there's another fish out there that NEEDS to come live with you. 😉
  5. Hey Maggie, I just got caught up on Cosmo. He's a real beauty!!! Such an amazing transformation in him from the beginning until now. Thanks for taking us along on his journey...and yours! Congrats on the new place. So glad your move with Cosmo went well. Alesha
  6. You guys, this presentation was SO awesome! I learned so many new things. Even though I don't have a Betta, the info on breeding labyrinth fish was good for this gourami owner too! I was so sad to miss the live. My 79-year-old mom needed help activating & learning her new cell phone. 🤣 And her timing did not gel with mine today, but I really don't mind. 😉 So I was extremely grateful that the playback was an option. @Zenzo, kudos on your first successful meeting! I can't wait for the next one! Alesha
  7. just realized...we need a "groan" emoji. 😉😁😆🤣😂
  8. If you don't mind the drive, check in to a visit at Imperial Tropicals in Lakeland. They are local fish breeders & sellers & are in the process of building a fish store on their premises. They are located just off I-4, in a bit of classic Old Florida, down dirt roads into the woods. But the folks are super nice. And the fish are AMAZING. Alesha
  9. That's excellent! I think I'm a little over $35 in total. And that's over 150 surveys. Good thing I have strong opinions, huh? LoL!
  10. I do the same thing, James! I'm so glad you thought to post about it here. (And when I don't have enough in my Google account, I have a back-up payment source listed on my membership account. So it works out really well.)
  11. I didn't mention anyone specifically in the video (my bad!), but I'll tag a few here who have been especially helpful to me. And I apologize for the wobbling of the video...I'm quite the amateur and um...I talk with my hands. You'll see my right hand flapping about quite a bit. Sorry. 🙄😂😆 @Daniel, @Bill Smith, @Brandy, @Streetwise, @H.K.Luterman, @MickS77, @TheDukeAnumber1, @Hobbit and of course @Cory, @Irene and @Lizzie Block for their expertise throughout the year. Alesha
  12. Awesome! Congrats, guys! You will SO enjoy the surprise box. 😍
  13. I'm pretty sure it's a "if it fits in the crayfish's mouth, it'll eat it" kind of thing. He's just feeling hungry and found a snack that couldn't run away fast enough. 😔 I think in a tank that small, it would be hard for most things to get away from a crayfish. They really will eat most things. I think the snails are safe, since they have their own hide-out, and the fish should be ok, if they swim fast enough. But anything else is fair game. At least in the crayfish's mind. I'm sorry for your loss. Maybe you could try him in a larger tank, so that everybody else has plenty of places to hide? Alesha
  14. I've never owned a Betta. And I've never really wanted to, but I think I'm ready to try something new. What would be a great first Betta? And no offense to my sweet guppies, but I'd really like something with a little bit of personality! I have very hard water here in central Florida. I don't use heaters, so my tanks stay 72-76* year-round, with the a/c running. Thank you, Alesha
