no bottom-feeders or dithers? I assume your SDs are in a different tank?
I do also have my flash zebra juruense catfish in there but it hardly moves.My red hooks are in another tank where they can put some size on before I place them wirh bigger fish.

how many tanks do you have set-up atm? Is the 265g the largest? I can't believe they go for $1,900 new....I could get a 180g starting at $800, not sure what i'm, gonna do but it seems anything over 6 feet is a LOT more expensive.

damn, you have almost as many total gallons in those 4 tanks as I have in my 19 tanks lol - a 125, two 75s, two 55s, 30Breeder, 30L, four 29s, two 20L, 20H, three 10s, 5.5 and a 3 bowfront.

I recently set up the 20H with the 3 gallon inside it cuz I want to try and breed Bettas - from what I gather, you are supposed to fill the smaller tank to the top and put the female in it, then filler the larger tank a few inches below the top of the small tank. The male and female and see each other and interact and it will eventually trigger him to start building a bubble nest. Once he does that, the female will jump out of the 3 gallon into the 20H and she will start laying eggs but after that i'm not sure what to do. I can't remember if you are supposed to separate them afterwards or if they both raise the fry and or just one parents does it.

I'll have to re-post this in the Betta forum
