Hello from New Jersey

I walked into Petsmart two days ago with the notion to buy a fish and a small bowl to help add some serenity to my space.

Little did I know that purchasing my little guy would have such a positive effect on my life. My blue Crowntail Betta has captured my heart.

I'm thankful that I've stumbled onto this site. So much great information here. I'm sure that I have found a lifelong hobby.

I'm not sure how to insert photos here. It says insert URL of your image. How do I get an URL if I'm uploading photos from my camera?

Welcome! I hope you find tons of great information here to help you with the new boy. What I do to post photos is either upload them to Photobucket or Tinypic.com and copy/paste.

Hello Nj. I used to live there. I too am new to the betta stuff, but I went a little nuts and went from 0 to 4 in less than 2 months. I have 4 tanks now too. . . I still want more after I have the tanks set up more perfectly. Welcome!

current pets: Alejandro Marmalade

Rehomed bettas (because of my move):
Cornelius Buttknuckle, Limoncello Dandy Lion, Cumulus Meriweather, Nimbus McCloud

RIP
Pinkerton Flowers and the fish formerly known as Prine Purplius LeGrape

Hello and welcome to the forum You're probably figuring out already that bettas are slightly addictive :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Slightly? Lol. Every time I walk into Petsmart I see 3 or4 bettas I'd love to take home. Welcome to the forum.
