Smile Aloha!

Hi there!
Just signed up. :D Hmm... how to start...

Well, my name in Elizabeth. I live in Hawaii, and own three Bettas, and take care of my mother's two. I chose the name StormKeeper, as my first Betta upon moving to Hawaii was a "feel better" present from my mother named Storm. I was grieving over having to leave my fish, cat and reptiles behind, and still miss them terribly.

I named him Storm because, in the right light, he reminded me of Japanese Watercolor paintings of stormy seas.
After Storm, I found Tatsuya, a fish sold to me as a DragonScale Betta, though I wouldn't be surprised if he was not a true DragonScale. I then got Sakura the same day, my female Crown Tail. So far that's it, but I'm just starting out. ;)

Hi Elizabeth

Welcome to the forum. We're glad you found us.

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