Forgot to introduce myself

I just realized I just started jumping in answering posts and never introduced myself first! How rude!

I kept a few guppies as a kid, but then moved on to four legged critters (dogs, cats, hedgehog, hermit crabs-ok, they have 6 legs, but hey)...then a friend of mine asked me to watch her Betta, which was in a tiny bowl. It seemed weird to me that a fish could live like that, so while I watched him, I did some research. One thing led to another as I purchased a Betta of my own and started learning more about them. Then at one point I had seven different fish tanks or single specialty tanks (reef tank, Southeast Asian biotope tank), but though these came and went, I always had a Betta. Keeping Bettas was love at first sight and though I have had a number of Bettas over the past 13 yrs, (most living 2-5 yrs) there is still so much I don't know. I am glad to have found this forum with so many knowledgeable folks; it is by far the best forum I have ever belonged to. I look forward to expanding my knowledge so I can provide the most up to date and best care of my Betta(s) as possible. Thanks ahead of time to each of you!

The more I think I know, the more I think I don't know much at all!

Oh, I forgot. I have a couple of pics in my album of my current gal, Esmeralda.
Can anyone tell me how to put my tank info here, where it says user on one tab and aquariums on the other? Thanks.

Ok so I must have had a senior moment. Of course hermit crabs have 10 legs, not 6. Just call me OCD worrying about writing the wrong thing. Sigh.

Hi BettaFran and welcome to the forum. Glad you are liking the forum so far. I too, find it quite friendly and easy to use in comparison to others. More over, it's quite interactive here. Quick responses too if you ever find yourself tangled in a mess. Hope you like your stay. :)
