Zane - Male DBHM White/blue-green marble

How many years total have you kept fish? 2
How many years have you kept bettas? 2
How many years since you first started keeping fish? 2

How many tanks do you have? 4
Do you have a room dedicated to fish, or what? I keep my tanks in my bedroom.
What are the main types of fish you keep? I keep mostly bettas. In my 14 gallon I keep guppies with cardinal tetras, but the bettas are my favorite.
other pets? I have a dog, Morrison. He's a soft coated wheaton terrier.

u like snails? nope
shrimp? nope
Do you, or have you kept tetras ever? yes, Cardinal and Neon
Like em? yes. In my community tanks I prefer to have a school along with fish who move on their own (like guppies).

How did you discover Bettafish.com? I typed in "bettafish.com" because I just thought that there was probably a website somewhere with that name. And I was right! :D
How long have you been here? I dunno. A year, maybe?
Like it? LOVE it.

What's your opinion on naming them (bettas) after Greek gods/goddeses? I think it's a great idea! I, personally, have never done it because I think it would induce a name related "collection" of bettas on my part. I think I would say "well, I have an Artemis and Athena. Now I need a Poseidon. Let's find a blue one!" <-- That's the kind of mentality I want to avoid. :D But it works for other people!

When life throws you lemons throw them back!
I am proud to say I own one fish! He lives in a 14 gallon jungle all to himself PAXTON is my double tail halfmoon featured in my icon :)
