Hello everyone, I'm Emily :) I have never had a fish before, but I did a lot of research into betta care and decided it was a good fit for me. I got Opal 2 days ago and she now happily swims nearby, darting through her hideout and watching me walk around the house. Her colors have brightened quite a bit since I've had her, when we got her she was almost transparent (her body is a shimmery white color) and her fins a dull burgundy. Now she shimmers and her fins are bright red with glittery lines through them. I have grown quite attached to her, I love watching her swim around and follow my finger. I look forward to being on this site so when I have questions there is a lot of helpful people to ask. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of bettas! Feel free to talk to anybody here, we'd be glad to help! But just a fair warning... most people once they get one betta end up getting more! It's addicting!
