    I'm totally head over heels for mine. They're friggin adorable. They live in a 12 gallon (8 of them) with my betta, Kasai.

    Those are really cute, but are you sure they should be living with a betta? Most bettas tend to be aggressive, but I have heard of some fish that can live with them.

    He is fine with them. I made sure to do a lot of research before selecting a tank-mate for him.

    I had ember tetras in before with him, but they were not fine. One of them kept nipping Kasai's tail. I found him dead when I got home one day. I assume Kasai snapped at him.

    Very cute! Corys are great tank mates for bettas since they usually stay in a different level of the tank and are not aggressive :)
    Do you have any more pics?

    OMG, they are so cute! They sound like a joy to have too!
     
    Though, TBH, I think Dwarf Puffers are the cutest :p with Pygmys being second :D

    FTS = Full tank shot, if you see a word that has a dotted underline you can scroll over it and it will have the definition there
    Another adorable picture!

    Naw. Mine rest on the glosso leaves, too sweet.

    Here's a FTS.

    I am getting concerned; I can only ever seem to count 7 at one time.
    I haven't found any bodies and they do hide well... But still I'm a bit worried.

    Kasai did I think kill the tetra that was incessantly nipping him but he isn't bothered by these guys...
    Am I worrying too much? :S
