New to Betta Keeping
I'm new to betta keeping, but I've tried to do as much research as possible to be sure that my new VT males are getting the proper treatment. They currently live in their own 10 gallon aquariums with heaters, filtration, and decorations. I do need to get more decorations for my second tank, but the male that lives in it seems to be happy so I don't think it needs to be rushed.
I bought them yesterday from Meijer. I know it's frowned upon to purchase from these chain stores, however, the bettas were fairly clean and active. The employee that was working in the department seemed very well educated about the fish. He asked me if I got a bowl and I said that I had two tanks instead and he said that it was great because bowls aren't a good home for them. I continued to tell him about my setup and he was very happy about it. The employee really wanted to make sure that I had a heater and such for the tanks as well. He made sure that I was aware that some of the bettas had a little fungus on them (he said he was working on treating them) and he even checked to make sure mine were alright. I guess I was just a sucker. I know, shame on me. Next time I'll resist.
Anyway, I would also like to apologize ahead of time for my low quality pictures. I don't have a camera at the moment so I'm trying to make an iPhone do the job. It isn't the best thing in the world when it comes to pictures. If the attachments aren't the right size, please forgive me. This is really the first time I've been on a forum and I have no idea how to re-size the pictures.
