Every time I go to Petco or Petsmart, I think about getting a Betta. I can't stand seeing them in those nasty little cups. It just makes me sad and I always have to fight doing a sympathy buy. I like the looks of the males best but... do I really want a 25 gallon tank with only one fish in it? I know they don't get along with others. I have Red Cherry Shrimp in the 25 gallon right now too and I don't know that I want to add a Betta to that tank as I will likely not have any shrimp left in no time.
Maybe some day..... Your fish are all quite lovely. It just makes me want to go out and get one even more. I really love the Blue
