I have had no problems with bullying, bad advice, flaming or arguments on this forum. Of course, we all are responsible for researching any advice we get (or give!) and some people are more verbal than others, but that would be true on any forum. I am grateful for those who share their experiences. The moderators do a great job here, and this is the first negative comment I've read since I joined. I am grateful to have found a place where I can talk fish with others who share my enthusiasm!

Really c.King? did you report it

This is just my opinion but a forum is a place to come and ask qustions. I do not think you shoud try and help someone and answer there question if you are unsure and if you are unsure i think you should state "i may be worng".

As for Loha's comments it depends how you take them, personally some of the blunt ones make me laugh but they are short and give a simple staright answer Nice to have you back though Chard

@ C. King. Since you just joined last month you missed the instances I am speaking of. I too haven't had any of those problems lately and hopefully continue to do so. It seems to come and go and when it persists I just find somewhere else to visit and keep checking back until I feel it's safe to continue my correspondence. I enjoy this forum for the most part and feel I can express my points and feeling without being repremanded or chastised for doing so. (Within reason) Unlike another forum (UB) where I had a negative 125 reputation. I quit making any and all comments even when I knew I could help someone because of all the flack I got from many of the members and mods. You can't even log on there because of malware now, (couldn't have happened to a worse, er uh nicer forum) I got so sick of bad advice and hearing one male Betta per 5 gallon tank I wanted to puke! None of the younger Betta enthusiasts can afford that. When I was thirteen I had a 5 gallon for a spawning tank and a ten gallon to keep the 5 or 6 females in with a 4 or 5 compartment Betta barracks to hold the males. A jar or two for infusoria and a little brine shrimp hatchery and that's it. A five for every male, two 30's, one for the females and one for a growout tank; are you kidding! I thought the old man was going to kill me when I snuck the 5 gallon in to put on the bottom of the ten gallon stand! Don't get me wrong here, I do not advise keeping your Bettas in little Betta barracks and 1/2 gallon jars or vases but a 5 gallon I would at least divide it in two.

Haha! Lol That forum sucked. I got a minus 24+ rep because I said stealing was wrong! I decided I was gonna go to their houses and steal their bettas after that lol. Anyways, this forum would do a lot better if there were rules against flaming.

I think that there are rules against flamming, isn't there mods (other than Betta man)?

I love this forum. I get to share my experiences with fish and get to learn more about them and how to keep them.

Yeah I laugh when I see loha's posts because of the bluntness and honesty that he puts out there. He gets his point across without flamming anyone.

lohachata: I know you were kidding, but I was like "how can teal be a bird?" I love your teasing, it makes me laugh and puts me in a good mood.

Maybe this will help: if anyone has a problem with someone, they should PM that person and discuss the problem with them through PMs and not on the forum.

chard...pure purple is another color i have not seen....but if i find a good one i'll get it for the wife as purple is her favorite color....

i really don't think that i am vicious to anyone...yes ; i can be pretty blunt...but i am honest about my abilities and what i truly do or do not know..what i do not believe in is coddling anyone just to not offend them..some folks just can't handle honesty and straightforwardness......as i always say.....i will be the first person to tell you that i am no expert on anything....i am still learning about this hobby.....

and i am upon occasion a wise guy...will often mess with folks......lol

angel......TEAL...............lol

@ Bettaman. Only a minus 24? You must not have made too many posts. I got that minus 125 within the first month almost. Someone would answer a question with an idotic, made up; guessed at or just plain wrong answer and I'd call B.S., especially on the amount of fish per tank subject and I'd get jumped on by 12 different fanatics and insane mods. That place was a nut house! I was thinking on that divider thing. Maybe the guy was talking about leaving them seperate with the divider for a certain length of time and then introducing them to breed otherwise it makes no sense, unless he was just pulling your leg. That's the kind of bad informantion that gets me going. Yet another reason why I don't get on yahoo answers (besides not having time for all their problems). People on there just answering to be answering or trying to boost their reputation and rating.

in my opinion a great many colors around today are really ugly...but breeders don't want to have to cull ugly fish..it would cost them too much money...so they come up with some kind of name and hype the daylights out of it...i just can't understand how or why some halfwitted twit would name a betta color "musdtard gas"..kinda sick to me..

angel.....teal is a bird......lol
Yeah, lets name the color of my strain of Bettas after a horrible type of sticky yellow gas that starts to burn and peel your skin off on contact used in the Vietnam war! I get a kick out of naming the colors of my Bettas on Aquabid. With in a few days the overseas sellers will come up with similarly colored Bettas with the same name or description. Anything with a fair amount of Red Wash is automatically the main color followed by Devil. Blue Devil HMPK or Black Orchid Devil Dragon Short bodied Hi-fin forktailed Halfsun buy-it-now price only $100.00 for some poor decrepid Betta that should have been fed to my Oscar before the age of 3 weeks like it's something special!

I think every friend I had on UB was from PMing them to warn them against trying to buck their system. Especially when it can to breeding petstore Bettas. OMG did I go round and round over that subject. Speaking of which: My avatar is the result of 7 generations of my selective breeding from.....you guessed it! Pet store Bettas!

Lol. I went inactive after I got mad. Yeah, I should've gotten at least a minus 60 rep on there for the time I was on, but I didn't post that much.

This is a great forum with great members and we shouldn't be fighting. We all have something in common: we all love fish. We are all connected because of that characteristic and we shouldn't break the connection.

I already answered this once. I must have hit Preview instead of Submit, darn it. I had a spawn of Plakats a couple years ago. Here are two of the brothers from that spawn. Teal Green:
