Hello

I just realized that I hadn't introduced myself in the Betta forum.
I'm Lizz
That is Falkor in my avatar. He is my first betta, given to me by a good friend who has gotten me addicted to the fish keeping hobby.
Right now he has 6 zebra danio companions, that I am considering returning to my LPS because they are much more active that I'd imagined and I think they stress him out.
There is also Dozer the mystery snail, a couple of ghost shrimp, and a few other small snails that I'm unsure of where they came from.

I am currently trying to talk my husband into a 20 (maybe a long) gallon upgrade for him. Then the ten gallon will be converted into a QT/HT.

I'd really like to get a female crowntail betta also. Or maybe start a sorority tank. Would a 29 gallon be a suitable size for that?

My husband keeps telling me "I don't want multiple tanks" but I'm all "Oh it will just be a couple..." I really do have an addiction that needs a bigger house.

Welcome! Betta's are definitely addicting, it's nearly impossible to just have one!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
