Just bought my first betta!

He seems to be enjoying his new home, swimming around really fast and jubilant-like.

I had fellow forum member Brancasterr help me out with the setting up.

Any big tips for a noob?

(That's a crappy pic of my 2 gallon tank. He's in the back chillin' by his plant).

VAN! Lol, that tank is stupid you noob. Buy him a 0.5 gallon tupperware. They live much better in those.

Kidding obviously. I hope your betta is doing good in there. As I can't check up on him myself, seeing he's in the other room...

RIP Purp

Wait, what? NEIGHBS? You can't know each other in real life. This is the internet, get out!

Haha, they're neighbors. That's awesome.
Good tank as well, it's good not to see a betta cramped up in a tiny space.
