Smile Hello Betta People!

I'm new to the board and to fish keeping. I wanted to introduce myself before going back to lurking and reading.

I live in Alabama with two cats and a husband. I've recently given a lot of thought to getting a betta. I figured there was more to keeping one than a tiny bowl so I'm in the research phase. I won't lie, there have been several times at PetSmart where I almost had an impulse purchase but I want to wait and have a nice, planted tank properly set up first.

I've been enjoying the wealth of information here and hopefully plan on joining in on the fun once I've got a guy (or gal) to take pictures of.

Thanks for having this forum. It's great!

Welcome, glad you're taking time to research and plan for a betta before going and getting one. I had to talk a friend from buying one this weekend because she thought bowl, rocks, betta and that would be enough.

I tried to put my signature but the ink wouldn't go through my screen.
