Hey Everyone!

Hello!

I got my betta a few weeks back. He's a halfmoon and I named him Rocky (after Rocky Balboa).

He's technically my third betta, but I had the first two when I was really young. I was shocked when I went to get Rocky, and I saw all the variations in color and tails I could choose from. When I was a kid, you could get a red or a blue veil tail.

He's currently in a 1 gal, but I'm getting him a 5 gal tomorrow. I've been reading up on betta care (mostly on this forum), and decided that he would be happier with a bigger tank. (And of course, since he's getting a new tank tomorrow he decided to build a bubble nest today).

He won't let me take a picture of him right now since he's working on his bubble nest, but I can upload one when he decides to take a break from his hard work

Hi! Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you and Rocky here! Gosh, I know I had bettas when I was a kid and I know I had no clue how to properly care for them, I just can't remember how many I had as a kid. It's been driving me crazy not remembering! But, yeah, you only had a choice of red or blue. I am amazed myself seeing all the beautiful bettas available today.
Rocky is going to love his bigger home! I have 5 five gallon tanks, 1 three gallon, and a ten gallon. My boys love all the space! Haha, I do water changes every Thursday and what do I wake up to today? Puddles, determined to build the worlds largest bubble nest. He was so intense and focused on it that I had to make a video of him working on it. He is going to hate me so much tomorrow. Can't wait to see pictures of Rocky!

My lovely bettas are: Dagger, Egg, Salsa, Marble, Augustus, Miles
Puddles, Oz, Nate, Monkey, Picasso, Feng, and Maui

Got some pictures of him! He decided to pose for these ones. I fell in love with him because he's really beautiful. You can't really tell how iridescent he is in pictures though :/
