Red face New Betta Lover<3

Hello everyone! My name's Megan and I'm new to fish-keeping. I did a bit of it when I was a kid, but only in the sense that I would sprinkle a few flakes in a tank every now and then and the rest was left to my parents lol. I'm a huge animal lover, I have 3 cats, a Golden Retriever and two Bettas (Argos, DTHM and a blue one, same kind which I've only had for a few days and have not named yet).

I live in Ohio and actually work in a Petco, as a groomer but loving animals and working in a pet store puts you on a fast track to animal hoarding haha, especially with Bettas I think because we get such gorgeous ones and going through all the cute tanks and decorations makes you want to just keep buying more....

Anyway, I absolutely love this site and am so incredibly grateful for all the fantastic information the members share here. I don't know what I'd do without it, or rather what my fish would do without it...probably not be nearly as happy as they are. I am always happy to meet new people, especially ones which I have a hobby in common with so don't be shy to say hi !

-Megan

Hi Megan

Welcome to the forum. We're glad to have you aboard.

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

Thanks everyone! Yes I've actually already started applying some of my forum knowledge at work by educating a couple of the other employees about how we should encourage customers to steer clear of the "cutesy" itty bitty Betta cup/bowls Petco loves to display so prominently.

We have a new Petco just up the street and it is a big, beautiful store, with loads of aquarium supplies, fish, plants, etc. The employees have been real helpful when I go in and it is nice and clean. But... They have a huge display of teeny tiny betta tanks and supplies right with all the bettas. It drives me crazy when I am in there and overhear parents with their kids picking out a fish and all that tiny stuff. It makes me want to stop them and talk to them about the proper care of bettas.
