I remember when I was young, the betta/peace lily craze was big. My grandmother bought herself one, one for my little cousin, and finally one for me. Leon, so named because I got him at Christmas and it was the letters of Noel rearrange, lasted only a few days. He was a beautiful green. I was intensely sad when he died, but my parents quickly found me Lester, a red betta who lasted for two years in a vase. Now, I am sixteen, and a huge pet person. Over the years I have had tanks of fish, including two goldfish and a tiny pleco, who all started off in bowls and I connived my way up to a tank. Recently having moved, I was looking for a water bottle for my gerbils in my basement and came across a fish bowl. I knew immediately I wanted more fish, and thus my research began. I signed up for this website just before I brought Timeaus, my first betta as a mature person home. He was a wonderfully personable boy, and started out in a one gallon bowl until I found two fully equiped twenty gallon tanks for twenty bucks and set up a community tank. The tank is going strong with my three platies, one balloon molly and Kaiser, my multicolor grizzle boy. I just bought Nero tonight, but I have no idea what his colors are. And so here I am.
