Thanks for the welcome. Wow, that's an awesome looking Betta in your profile pic! He's sensational! I guess this is a reason to fill you all in on a few more useless tidbits about us. We have a Boston Terrier (my fave), and a Pembroke Corgi (2nd fave). We also have a very curious cat, which is sometimes fascinated with the aquariums. We had a 30 gallon tank several years ago, but after a disaster several years ago, I kinda lost touch as an aquarium enthusiast. Somehow, the tank cracked open, and OMG!, we had water everywhere, and sadly, all the fish died too. I guess the itch finally got too strong, cuz' I bit the bullet, and got Blu-boy in June. I suppose we have about 20 other fish, but Betta's will always rule!! I consider myself a total novice, have several ???s, but hope that I can blend in the Betta Care area. Thanks again, have a great rest of the night!
