Hello there!

I have been stalking this forum for the past couple weeks, figured I might as well join!

I kept a betta fish several years ago, but he was sick from the pet store, I was inexperienced, and sadly he did not last long.

Today I finally got another fish and it's love all over again!!

He really spoke out to me- such a cute little personality and my absolute favorite color combo. I still can't get over how shiny his scales are... my goodness- not what I'm used to!



At first he was shy, but now he swims over to meet me, follows me around the glass, and is an absolute piggy (maybe he is following for food- lol)! He totally reminded me why I love bettas.

Despite having a bond already, I still have no idea what to name him! Any ideas?

Anywho...just sayin' hi!

Hi there Alu so nice to have you join us ! Your betta is so pretty and I love those colors also, its amazing how fast we and our Bettas form a bond so quickly I was the same way when I got my guy. As for name how about Shimmer because from your photo it looks like his blue scales shimmer. I hope you enjoy your time here with us and welcome abroad

Remember the Light at the end of the tunnel may be You.

Thanks so much for the welcome and name suggestions! :D My sister actually suggested Justice too, and Shimmer is really cute! I finally decided to name him Curie though. I seem to have a science (and scifi) theme starting in that tank and it kinda goes along with my major. XD

Welcome to the forum. =] I stalked the site for a couple of weeks before joining myself. Anyway, you have a beautiful Betta! Love his colors. I can't say I've ever seen scales that shine as his do. Nice name you picked for him by the way. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Good morning or almost afternoon from where I am. Welcome to bettafish.com. I like the name Curie, because it describes who you are which is most important. I like the two-tone colors he has too. Just remember to keep him warm; he is a tropical fish and loves to be in water between 78-82 degrees. Also, show a picture of your tank. We enjoy watching how other betta owners decorate. I am about to update mine soon.

Thank you so much! He is really living up to his name. Reminds me of curious, and that he is!

Thanks countyrd, he is being kept warm.

This is what his tank currently looks like,



I'm not sure how I want it set up as far as design goes, but this is how it is for now.

I'm looking forward to your update!
