    Hi

    My name is Dale and I'm based in Cape Town. Been into fish keeping for about 10 months now and still learning as I go along. The fish I focus on is Betta Splendens and had a few successful spawns under my belt already. Other than the normal VeilTail & CrownTail Bettas we get here, I managed to get someone to import HalfMoons and DeltaTails (my avatar is my one DT I have) for me. I have given breeding a rest at the moment as my primary interest has shifted from fish to aquatic plants :p Setups I have are as follows:

    2 X 1.2m (std)
    3 X 1foot
    4 X 2foot

    As mentioned, I am mostly into planted tanks now as I find it more interesting than fish.

    Well that's me for now...for any Betta questions, please feel free to shout

    Cheers
    Dale

    Shot, i might be getting two more 2foot tanks...will bear your offer in mind if I do. At the moment, I think I might only have space for one small 1foot tank

    Thanks ZebraPlec & Admin :) Looking forward to building up the community here. Hopefully by tonight I'll write up my Betta spawning methods/recommendations for reference.

    Henk - I see we are actually quite close to each other...maybe we can hook up at some stage
