Hello from New Jersey :)

Hi All!

My name is Alyssa. I have had bettas for maybe 6 years or so, but when my last one Rio, died my parents didn't want me getting anymore. I've been Bettaless since 2007, so recently I decided why not try again? I've browsed this forum for a few years, but now I think joining makes more sense. I got the Betta boy today. He is a yellow/black VT. Name suggestion? I was thinking Buzz, because he's the color of a bee..but I am not sure yet. Here are some pictures. He's in a ten gallon with a feeder guppy that I've had for awhile. He actually didn't bother the guppy at all. I am planning on a getting a few Cory's along with him but that will be later on! I also have a Pug/Beagle mix named Mikey and two hermit crabs!

Hello and welcome to the forum

I like the name Buzz :)

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

Welcome to the forum! Your a Jersey girl eh? Me too!!!!!!!!!

"It's just a fish". So? Just because it's a fish they don't deserve love and proper care? They have a heart, they feel pain. They should be treated just as well as a dog or child, with love and respect.
" it's just a fish" Ok, well then that's just a dog, and just a cat, and you are just a heartless human that deserves a slap across your face.

Welcome!! What a beautiful fish-nice choice!!

I'm from NJ too-lived here most of my life.

Fairly new to this forum, but have been keeping Bettas for over 2 1/2 years. I'm a more frequent visitor here now! Wonderful people, great advice. Good luck with your new fish. Let us know what you decide to name him!
