Just wanted to say hello!

Hello, everyone!

I'm Emily and I've been lurking here for quite awhile. I'm a little shy about posting, but I figured it was time to introduce myself.

I caught the betta bug about six months ago when my boyfriend and I were fish-sitting our friend's betta. I grew attached to the little guy during the week we had him, which lead to the idea of getting a fish of my own. I put the idea on the back burner, but then I stumbled upon this site, had a Visa gift card that was about to expire, and before I knew it I had a tank set up with my very first betta. It's been a little nerve wracking being new to this, but he is such a joy to have around that I don't mind. I just want to give him a good home.

I also want to say thanks to everyone. If it wasn't for all of the advice and information that everyone shares here, I probably would have done everything wrong. Though I think this place might be enabling a betta addiction. haha

Welcome. Yes it's an addiction. If I hadn't walked away today in Petco I would have had 8 more!

Welcome! It's easy to have a betta addiction. I have 5 of them myself but would love to get more!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

It's good to be among people who understand what it's like to not be able to walk out of a pet store without at least considering getting another fish. Everyone else just thinks I'm going to turn into a crazy fish lady.

We're all crazy. Lol Yeah, I've been so tempted to walk out with a half dozen. Where I live now I don't have access to a petstore so no new fish for me. I order from breeders now.

If my place was bigger I'd have more. I like to sit and watch them swim about. My problem is that I still have to go to the pet store for the other animals. And petco is just down the street. Ugg!
