One thing to do is RESEARCH!!! This site helped me a ton with very simple things like the tail types. When I got Fireheart, he was marked as a HM double tail. I had to go up to a worker and tell him that the fish was clearly a crowntail. I saved about $6 on him because I knew my fish!

Actually, post count has nothing to do with experience in every case. High post count can sometimes only mean that member post a lot on the forum-Not that they have experience in fish keeping, however, usually they are helpful by pointing you in the right direction or to a member that can help.

Oh wow! You saved $6! That's great!
Pet store people don't know their fish........ They have given me 0 help with Prada.

And thanks for the insight, OFL! I now know how the post count works :D

OLF has a point. I was just upgraded to junior member because I have posted A LOT and I have only had my bettas for four days.

And like-wise, there could be a new member that just joined but he or she has been betta keeping the correct way for several years.

Not the best idea, but if he is doing well, more power to you!
