New here and new to the betta community (and fish in general)!
I'm Nicole, 25, and mom to one 3 year old little girl. About two weeks ago I decided to get my daughter a fish as a potty training present, she loves fish and dinosaurs, I couldn't really buy her a T-Rex...so, fish it was. I was hesitant in doing so because for Xmas I bought her a goldfish, well...it didn't even last a day.
We brought Gillyweed (I'm a big Harry Potter fan and I just needed to name him something related to it) and I quickly became obsessed ~ my daughter was interested for a few hours but you couldn't drag me away from his tank!
Anyway, Gillyweed (aka Mr. Fishy by my daughter) is a beautiful deep red and purple-blue male veil tail and I love it - I can definitely see why people love them!
I also have 3 daschunds (for awhile we had 9 total after my Doxie girl had her pups - scary time) and yeah...that's about it.
Looking forward to getting to know y'all and more about bettas!
