I am so glad to have found this forum. There is a lot of helpful information here.
Sadly I'm am betta-less. I lost my last betta last year and haven't really given much thought into getting another one until lately. I really miss having them around. They always seem to have made things more lively.
I used to go to pet stores and pick up the not so well to do ones and tried to get them back into good condition, fortunately it usually turned out well. They made it through hurricanes, power outages,tornadoes and the cats. I got made fun of for having bettas everywhere though
I'm not sure where to get the new guy from. I've always wanted a solid white(probably a HM) male. I found some from overseas that I love, but I have no experience shipping from there and am scared something may get messed up. And sadly the local pet stores have a poor selection. Not sure what to do yet.

Anyways enough of my rambling. Hello everyone! Looking forward to learning and having fun on the forum.

Hello and welcome!! If you were closer to me, my local breeder (who bred my avatar plakat) has a spawn of opaque HM's. Shame. They're beautiful.

Hope you find that special fish soon!
