Hi guys!

I'm new to this site but not exactly new to Betta fish ownership! I have had 2 bettas so far and just lost my first little buddy a week ago after 3 long years with him! I was very happy that my first ever betta fish lived so long! His name was Jimmy and I never did find out what kind of betta he was exactly. About a week ago i gave in a got another betta who I believe is a halfmoon male betta. His name is benny and I signed up for this site so I could give him the happiest and most enjoyable life possible!

Welcome to the site and addiction :p
Sad to hear your previous betta died, but you gave him a great long life for 3 years, so he was obviously very happy with you!

If you can get Benny to flare (hold up a mirror to him) then maybe I can help you clarify if he's a HM or not!

Best of luck.

Welcome to you and Benny

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