Hai from Pennsylvania:)

I've been on the site since mid November on my boyfriend's account, but i finally decided to get my own!

I'm a Horticulture major at Penn State. I'm relatively new to Betta keeping; just got my first little guy in August. His name is fish sticks:) When i first got him i had him in a horrible 1 gallon tank, with less than frequent water changes. He got fin rot so bad that it was almost to his body, which is what led me here! I've moved him to a planted 10 gallon and he is 10000x better.

Here he is!

Is it just me or does everyone fall in love with their first betta?
Looking forward to being on the forum:)

I'm from PA too. I'm glad your boy is doing well now. He's adorable.

I've had bettas for years, but I ended up here after rescuing a baby betta with no baby betta experience what so ever. Thank goodness there was a whole long thread dedicated to petco babies & a breeders section here.
