And for the record any invasive is bad but if you ban a pet because it could harm native populations when released then you need to ban most every pet.




I also almost lost a large indo datnoid to jumping...that would have suuuuuucked if I was not right there when it happener
The argument for comparing them to other invasive species isn't a valid argument. The ban is meant to prevent people from providing business to those who are importing/selling them anyway. I'm jealous that you got to keep one as they are amazing fish!

Do you still have the Indo?

Sold the indo last year. Want to get a widebar sometime soon. Next project is gonna be either a dat tank or a peacock bass set up. Always wanted peacock bass but if I do that I am going to go full on amazon basin aquascape with live plants. Needless to say this isn't going to happen any time soon.


We have had the bulseye for nearly 10 years so it was obtained legally.

Yea, the guy who worked there was shocked and didn't know they had that piece. Said he would have bought it and fragged it, if I didn't take it.

They charge $10 for a tiny frag, so it was a steal for $50.

Only $10 for a frag? Here the smallest frags are usually $20-$25. That's the standard for all of the LFS within 45 minutes of me too.

Definitely bookmarking that for when I get my tank back up and running. Thanks!

I guess I shouldn't be complaining though. At least we can have coral, unlike Hawaii...

Up until about a year ago, I had family in South Bend and we would go every other month or so. I'll definitely visit it if I'm ever there again. Thanks!

Betta hasn't flared or even approached crab. They really steer clear of eachother, the crab is too big to get hurt by the fish, and too small to catch any of them or pose a real threat.

Plus he is well fed, he knows better than to go fish hunting. He spends a lot of his time chilling on his beach, climbing his coconut tree, and scouring the sand for delicious betta food.

crab would maim the beta.

never keep crabs/crays with fish unless you want some dead fish. crays in particular, you will probably be OK with the crab but it still is not a great idea.


its like putting turtles with fish, they might be OK for a little bit but you will wake up one day and your fish will all be gone
