So a friend gave me some fish supplies, she had guppies but sold them all and gave her stuff to me.
I wanted something simpler so I browsed the web and decided to get a betta. Today I went to the store and picked up a new silk plant, water conditioner, and food. I also got my first betta.
She is a crown tail female, I picked her out because she had the most colour and the local fish store never has crown tails, they only have a bunch of veil tails and a tank with a bunch of females. The females have round tails and thick bodies and the other ones look like a smaller version of the male veil tails.
My new girl is going into a 10 gallon tank, she has lots of decorations to play in and I got all this stuff and her for under $15!! Don't you love free things?
She is still in her bag and I am working on filling up her tank right now.
She needs a name still so if you think of anything give me a shout, she has a soft pale pink body with red and white fins.
Her belly is really big but I read it is from eggs.
Right now she is very pale so I will need to let her settle in before I get good pictures.
Looking forward to talking to other betta keepers!

Welcome to the forum! I'm sure your new girl will love her tank! (My boys like their round leaf plants with flowers that I see in your tank too)

Welcome to the forum

Looking forward to pics. of your new fishy friend. She's not going to know what to do with all that room.

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