Talking Hi!

Hi!
My name is Katherine, and I have a betta named Snowcone. ^.^
I'm from the south, so we actually call them "sno-balls"
I had a betta before my lovely girl named snowball, but he passed.
He jumped out his tank. -.- I got a lid after that..
So, I named my new baby after him. Her name is snowcone.
I've had bettas throughout my childhood, but this is the first time I'm doing it the right way!
I'm a teenager, and fell in love with Snowball at the pet store. I love animals. haha.
So I brought him home, did some research, and fell in love with fish after that.
Currently, Snowcone is in a 2.5 gallon heated and non filtered.
The nitrogen cycle just puzzles me
It's so confusing!
If I could get it right, I'd be owning my favorite fish right now! (goldfish)

Well, welcome to the forum Katherin, this is a great site for information and if you have any questions just ask them here. Dont ask petco or petsmart, they dont know a thing there talking about. Could you post a picture of snowcone? Also you said you love Goldies? Ask Olympia on any questions about gold fish, Olympia's an expert.

Haha! I never trust petsmart!
Especially not on my guinea pigs n.n
Snowcone is the picture to the left of my posts!
I have really bad lighting in my room, so when I get the chance I'll try to get some good ones in some light with my camera!

She's pink, with some blue in her fins.
I was actually trying to get better pictures of her and shes swimming sideways...
She was fine earlier.
I don't overfeed and I cleaned her tank a few hours ago, about 50%
:/

It looks like she's only using one of her side fins.
I googled it and it said to feed a pea.
Would this help?
Poor baby. :/
thanks

Uhm, I think I heard something like that would help, but I don't know really about any sickness except a little on ick and fin rot, and those two only becuase I had to deal with them. But you could ask someone like Sakura8, or Laki, or OldFishLady. They will probably be able to help.

Welcome to the forum and to the wonderful world of Betta keeping...

Nice to meet you...

Also, with sick Betta-we have a sticky post at the top of the Disease/Emergency section that need to be filled out and added to your new thread in that section. The more info we have the better we can help.

Look forward to hearing more about your Betta keeping adventures and seeing more pics....
