Greetings from Georgia

Hi!

Finally introducing myself cuz I didn't think it right to come on and ask a question without saying Hello first...

I had a couple betas back in college (before the Internet) so when my daughter asked for one for Christmas, I didn't hesitate. I've learned a LOT about betas since then! I bought a second betta a month ago kind of on a whim (though I had been contemplating another betta since January.)

The first one is my daughter's veil tail, "Lucy." The second is my crown tail, "Shimmer." I'm Lready planning on adding a third to the collection!

Hello and welcome to the forum

You have two pretty boys there :) And it seems like the betta bug has got its claws in you. It happens to even the most resistant of us.

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

Your Bettas are absolutely gorgeous! I love Lucy's pinkish colors, and that is a great picture of Shimmer, it really shows off his colors!!!

Georgia, the US state, and fish names...

Hi, all!

Thanks for the friendly welcome

I am born and bred in the American South, US that is.... And though I do appreciate the names Georgia (and Savannah,) I am glad my given name is neither as I actually live in the city!

And my sweet six-year-old said about Lucy: "Well, he has girl's colors so he's gonna get a girl's name!" What can ya' do
