Hi everybody!

Hello, I'm Karlee!

I am a 13 year old Colorado native who is getting back into betta fish with my sorority tank I am getting on Friday. :) I had a betta when I was younger named Rainbowfish and he lived for 2 years and died with a bad petsitter. We had a good bond and being the smart little kid I was I would hold him out of the water. (he allowed it?) I also took care of my neighbors betta as well around that time. I haven't had any more fish because my mom doesn't really like keeping them. :P But my dad decided that I could get a sorority tank at his house so I am very excited to get started again.
I have been lurking around and you all are so nice, so I really hope I will be given a chance to fit in with you all and make some friends!

Welcome Karlee! Glad to have you here! Sororities are a lot of fun but can be a lot of work too, if you have any questions about setting one up please don't hesitate to ask!!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

Hi, Moonshadow! Me and my dad decided just to get a boy or two and keep them divided in a roomy ten gallon since we are just getting back into the hobby again. :) I will definitely be asking you some questions, thanks for being so welcome. I have been stalking this forum for a while and I am so happy to start to be part of it!

That's awesome! My dad would freak if I said I wanted to actually breed the bettas, as I think both him and I both would have a problem finding homes for bazillions of little babies haha. I am hopefully going to convince my mom to let me get one for her house because I have started to catch the bug. :) Eventually I want a cool HMPK from AB, but for now I just want to start with some Petstore beauties.
