Yesterday I bought one very beautiful betta fish which has a body length of about one and a half inch, color of sapphire blue spectrum and violet-striped tail with white edge. I named him Tommy. Tommy is, strictly speaking, my first fish, I owned a handful of guppies 4 years ago which then ended up in my neighbor's yard aquarium, cuz my dad had been tired taking care of them in my stead LOL. I never thought of keeping a pet fish since then until I accompanied my cousins into a pet fish store yesterday morning. The decision was made within few seconds, now taking good care of Tommy becomes one of my new year resolution. =D
I was in the rush of purchasing fish tank before I got to know this site, and Tommy is now residing in a tank of about half a gallon. I am going to buy him a larger tank tomorrow with some underwater plants, thanks to the guidance from this awesome site!
