Colorado Betta Keeper

Hello from Colorado! My name is Jessica, and I am a relatively new Betta owner. I say relatively because I did own Bettas when I was young. I have one Betta currently and am in the process of getting a second Betta (male tri-color Crowntail) and one of his female spawn mates shipped from Thailand. Luckily, one of the main trans-shippers is local for me, and is willing to let me pick them up in person rather than shipping them. I have plans to start a Sorority later this year, after I get my newbies settled and happy.

I currently have one dark blue Crowntail male that I rescued from the local Petsmart, with the two from Thailand on their way.

I am hoping to find more people in Colorado interested in Bettas but Iím willing to talk to anyone. I also noticed thereís no local IBC chapter.

Glad to meet everyone!

Hello, and welcome to the forum. ^^
Looks like the betta bug bit you, good luck getting cured!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

welcome to the forums! i was wondering how much your transhipper charged you for local pick up? I think it's linda?

Colorado is a nice place, i got stranded there one day and saw prairie dogs on the roads, lol, pretty interesting to see.

It is Linda. She's charging 2 dollars per betta to cover the import fees.

No problem at all! I like it here in Lakewood, which is a Denver Subarab, but I love the area around my work! I work in Blackhawk, which is about 45 minutes into the Mountains from Denver. It's wonderful up here! Cool in the summer, and still mild enough in the winter that we can get to work daily. There are a lot of things to do in Colorado, especially for outdoorsy people (which I'm not lol). Trips to Estes Park make up my childhood, and I still remember them fondly! We moved here when I was six, and the rest of the family slowly followed from Pennsylvania to escape the humidity. Well worth it!

Hello and welcome to the forum

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