So new I don't even have any fish, yet!
C: Hello~ My name is Violet, but I go by Viola.
I've become interested in betta fish for the past two or three months, now. Slowly putting things together so that I can actually buy fish in May or June.
C: I'm in my early 20's, college student, full time employee. And I have two cats.
Right now I'm trying to fight the urge to attempt a NPT. Right now I have a 10g tank set up with some gravel, filter, and a few live plants. (Some anubias that petco didn't specify, as well as another type of plant I don't remember the name of) Will be purchasing an API master testing kit after the first few days of May (Payday~) so I can see where my tank is at. I've had it up and running since the end of March, I believe.
If I decide to go the NPT route, I'd like it to be heavily planted, so that I can (try to) have a male betta, 5 glowlight tetra, 2 red cherry shrimp, and 2 ramshorn snails. (I am not knowledgeable on shrimp or snails, but I've been trying to learn about how to balance stocking my tank, as well as having enough live plants for everyone to be happy.
8I Does that sound good? Or? No?
@_@ I go to petco about once a week just to stare and check out the bettas.
