It's been nearly 6 years but i've fallen back into bettas! My Last betta fish died nearly 6 years ago and only three months ago have I finally purchased a new one.

Goldfish have been my passion for many years and I have been preoccupied taking care of my pond and larger tropical tanks. When my favorite angel fish died du to a freak accident I disassembled that tank, re-homed all the fish and set up a 5gallon with the intention of getting a nice betta.

Cycling the tank was easy this time around as i had the help of a well established 20gal with ample filter material!

Right now i'm only using artificial plants because my local fish stores live plant stock is so terrible. If i can ever

So far it looks like this:

and that weird black blur is this guy

I got him from a family run local fish shop that takes great care of their fish! Plakat thai will always be my favorite type of betta as i get enough long fin trouble from my goldfish to last a Life time!

so hello to you all! this seem like a great forumn and i look forward to meeting all of you and your fishes!
