Smile Hi from East TN

Hi there!

We've had goldfish for quite a while in an outdoor pond. Started with 2 feeders from Walmart and now have 4 big ones!

A friend gave my child a betta as a gift but it didn't survive the week.
We have a planted, 5 gallon, filtered, lighted, heated and, now, cycled aquarium for a future betta friend! So far a few snails live in the tank from the plants we got. The nice thing about the snails is that we can put them in the pond, as needed. i think our goldfish like the tasty treats.

We are hoping to buy from a breeder rather than try our luck again with the big box stores.

Hello and welcome to the forum Good luck finding your new fishy friend. He or she will love that 5 gallon!

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