Hey Everyone!

So, I might as well be new to the whole "Betta proper care thing" because my first two bettas were kept in 1 gallon bowls. My first lives for 3 years and the second live for 2 I believe...

I recently just lost my most recent Betta, a male Half-Moon...passed last night 08/16/13. I kept him in a 2.5 gallon tank that had a crappy filter so I took it out and just did lots of water changing.

I am thinking about getting another fish possibly with in the next few weeks or depends on a lot of factors as I am getting ready to return to college.

Anywho not that ya'll want to know about my personal life...I plan to ask lots of questions and learn all that I can to make my next finned friend a happy one.

welcome to the forums :)

1 gallon bowls are okay... If you find a way to safely heat them, and make sure to constantly clean them. I find larger tanks easier to manage personally

You have questions, and we have the answers :)
