Hi everyone!

I've lurked for the last couple of months until joining to ask a question yesterday :)

Our story starts with my son (6) playing (essentially) beer pong at the state fair and getting 3 fish that died the next day. I had purchased a 3 gal tank for them already so after some basic research, the doomed goldfish were replaced with the betta. She was mislabeled at Wal-mart as a male and we didn't find out for a couple of weeks. By then, I liked her and was having fun with her so we got a new tank and set another tank up in my son's room so he could have a "boy room". Upgraded my tank to a 10gal and added an ADF and loach to it (found out last night that was a bad rec from Petco) about a month ago.

I went from no fish to seemingly tanks everywhere in a couple of months! Its been fun though and these bettas are definitely unique and easy to get attached to

Nice to see more and more fish lovers! You should post a picture of your fish!

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack & Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends.

I Miss You
