And we'd love to see a pic of your new guy if you have one. We love fish photos! :)

We play with our camera's a lot. I heard the flower setting works but for me the self portrait and portrait settings seem to work. For clearer pictures I can definietly recommend playing with the camera to see which turns out a better picture of your finned friend.

Aww, he looks so cute! If your camera has a macro setting (looks like a little flower), that helps A LOT! I also like to set my camera to sports/action mode because they move around so much.

Also I take a lot of photos to get a decent one and mine still aren't as good as some people's pics.

Talking Welcome!

It's good to know that I'm not the only newbie when it comes to bettas. You won't be disappointed about joining this site. There's a variety of experience levels so it shouldn't be difficult to find information on what you need.
