    Hey guys,

    Andre refered me to the site and said that it's a great place to learn a lot and meet new people. I'm very much looking forward to it.

    My name is Michael and I'm from Johannesburg. I have 5 aquariums in total, 3 of my own and I also go to look after my dad's 2 tanks. I have a 180 l Juwel tropical tank with a mixed community and also 2 Juwel 60 l tanks divided into 3 partitions with a total of 6 bettas. I'm a massive betta fan and it's actually because of them that i got into this hobby.

    Anyways I'm looking forward to making your acquaintance and I'll see you guys again soon. Cheers for now.

    Welcome bud !

    If you are into Betas contact Aquazoo (Liaquat), if you have not done so already, as he has some pretty stunning beta varieties in stock at the moment, as I saw last week !

    The down side is he's in Cape Town.

    Lol, I'd love to post some pics but most of my plants have become an expensive snack for my guys :) leaving my tanks quite bare and unattractive. And getting it replaced it almost impossible because most of the pet stores in my area sell half dead plants at rediculous prices. Thus I am a sad panda.

    But i'll take some nice pics of my betta tanks, I feel they're worthy of the site. Do you guys have any tips what settings to switch my camera to take decent shots to post?

    Definately! I love bettas. I can't stand walking into a shop and seeing them imprisoned in little jars. I just feel that in Johannesburg there aren't many quality places where to purchase from. Most pet stores only have the more common varieties of various fish. I would like to see the more exotic and rarer types.

    Hopefully you guys can recommend some places I might not know about.

    Welcome to APSA!

    Yay aonther Betta nut! (Thank goodness now I am not the only mad one around. . . )

    If you join TASA, you will find we have a couple of breeders on there that sells beautiful Bettas. To the extent that I am working on ways to get one or two here when I have space for more :p

    Plus all tanks can be shown here :D (AKA we all have a slight addiction to images)
