Getting back into Bettas

Hey there! I have seem to have fallen off the wagon again and after 4 years of a betta break I've ironically found myself with 4 bettas. I'm currently putting together a new tank that will allow me to have a 5th and I'll post pics of it later when I get it all finished. I love taking fishy pics so I'm sure everyone will get to know my fish really quick lol! Anyway, a little about myself...I'm currently a Vet Tech student with a background in biology (gonna finish that degree when I get done with the Tech), I have 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a parrot. I was seriously into fish up through high school and and one point I had around 15 tanks (not including jars for males) all in my bedroom and my parents thought I was crazy...I don't see myself getting to that point again, but I can't say never! Oh, and LOVE live plants...love love love live plants...

You sure have a big plate there! Welcome!

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

Hello and welcome to the forum

I'm loving the boy in your profile pic.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks! He's turning out to be very pretty...I took him home about a week ago from the store 'cause he was showing some early signs of Dropsy, but we're all healthy now! I posted pics of everyone in the photo section!

Welcome back to the Betta world, and Welcome to the forums! I'm actually new to Betta owning (never owned one before) and new to this forum too, lol. Anyway, so far I've found this forum to be a very welcoming, informative, one. Not to mention a good place to connect with plenty of other betta lovers! :)

Rest in peace little Pizza. You were a true miracle who is dearly missed and will be forever loved by all who knew you. 2 years 10 months of love, life, and weirdness with the fish who just kept on living!
