Unexpected Betta Keeper

Hello!
Although not new to fish, I am new to bettas. I have kept guppies for quite some time now, and never expected to end up with a betta. Upon moving back into the dorms at my college, a girl who graduated was walking by with a tank. Curious, I asked her what she was up to. She was going to flush the poor thing! ...So now I have a betta on my desk in a 3 gal filtered tank. I'm looking forward to learning more about my new and unexpected pet with the wise help of the many members here.

I can try, but wouldn't a better option be visiting this sites parent site: TropicialFishKeeping.com? That's where I received help for my guppies. There are plenty of people there that I am sure are better qualified to help you than myself ^.^

Thank you...I will check this site out today..I'm starting to panic because I know one of the guppies is pregnant and not sure when she will be ready. I don't know if the other fish will eat the fry or not.

Its no problem ^.^ I know my first experience with fry was accidental. I came home from my LFS with a pregnant one unknowingly. Only 4 survived due to my lack of knowledge, but they are alive, beautiful and well cared for today. I hope they can help you like they have helped me.
