I spent the past few days lurking the forum, and decided to join. I recently received a betta fish (I had a few when I was younger, but this is my first fish of any sort in years), and I will admit that I am somewhat clueless about their care - which is why I was very happy to discover this forum.
Here's a picture of my lovely new addition, Amadeus (sorry for the horrible picture quality.. my camera died so I had to use my phone):
I was looking at the various types of bettas, but I haven't quite been able to determine what kind he is... any insight will be appreciated!
I suppose I will 'introduce' myself as well. My name's Heather. I'm an avid animal lover - I have a small colony of hermit crabs (purple pinchers), one dog, a ball python, and of course a betta. I have worked with horses for nine years; though have not been able to ride at all for the past year and a half. I do enjoy writing; and usually am long-winded (as I'm sure you can tell by now
). However, I do tend to be rather quiet - which means I'll probably lurk on the forum more than I'll post.
With all the formalities out of the way, I am looking forward to lurking the forum and learning all I can about my newest addition!
