    The spectabilis is going to be exciting! Such a nice contrast between the body coloration and flecks. It looks like N. ramispina will start making more mature pitchers right about now. I can see the spur becoming more pronounced. It looks more mature then my N. burkei, by a lot. I want that thing to make adult pitchers ASAP!

    I still laugh every time I think about the dried milk.

    If the danios don't work with acidic water I have a whole list of things that will. Both of my nano tanks have a pH close to 5. Of course, as soon as I put some Utrics in the 3 gallon tank the filter pump stops working.....
    I think you'd like wild form Bettas. they look and behave completely differently from the typical pet shop betta; much shorter fins, less aggressive (you can keep a pair or breeding group together without recreating the Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and their behavior is really interesting. The Coccina complex is the most interesting, I think. I have no clue how hard they would be to find in Utah, but they're really rare over here. Small gouramis would work well, too. I have a licorice gourami that prefers a pH of 4...... crazy little thing. The zebra danios should be fine in a pH of 6.0, they're hardy little things.

    Yeah, I'm excited about the spectabilis. Good luck with the burkei!
    I'm thinking of getting a couple dwarf gourami's, and that will be it for my aquarium for now, but I'll deffinately keep that in mind for future fish. Besides the danios, I also have a male swordtail that my sister gave me and a few "ghost shrimp" which are doing well.

    Thanks
    The D. Adelae are in a 50:50, or 60:40 peat: perlite mix. Something to that effect. I rarely measure it out exacly.

    I really enjoyed these. Nice to see N. distillitoria. Now I know what mine will look like as I got a young one with no pitchers. And love the sanguinea. I still don't have one. All the lowlanders are great.
