Repetitive streaking

Recommended beta fish site?

I'm adopting a beta today from a sad environment and I'd love to put the same great care into him as we have into our crabs. I found some general information but wondered if anyone here could recommend a beta site that they love or a forum? ThanksBeka

molting

I have a few crabs that are micro/tiny and I almost never see them because they molt so frequently. One that was a micro August 2012 and is still a small now, I will see him for a day or few and then won't for a couple of weeks.
