Hello All! New member!

Hi There!
I have been following this site for a few months. I purchased my first Betta in November and researched quite a bit before getting him. His name is Galileo. He is a Blue male Veil-tail betta. He is almost 6 months old. He is in a heated and filtered 5 gallon bowfront tank.
I fell in love with bettas shortly after and in January purchased my second betta. Her name is Esmeralda. She is 3-4 months old. I think she will be a Blue-green veil-tail. The reason i say "will be" is because her color is still developing. when i got her a few weeks ago she was a pale green. Now she is turquoise, royal blue, green and as red accents. She is in a heated, filtered 5.5 gallon rectangular tank.
I am hopelessly in love with all fish now and loooovve talking about them. I hope to learn more about fish keeping and Betta keeping in general as a member of this site.
