Hello everyone. I'm new around here. You can call me Zee. I recently got a betta, and while I had bettas in the past, I must admit it was back when I was under the misconception that they could be in a bowl at room temperature. I'm much more informed now and want to take better care of the one I have.

My betta's name is Typhoon, and while I've only had him for about a week he's already showing himself to be a little Grumpy McGrumperson. He's an alert guy though and often swims up to glare at you through the glass when you are within his line of sight. I know he's a Half Moon, but not really sure what his color is. I know it changes from green to blue to purple depending on the angle.

Here is a really bad picture of him finishing a flare.

Hi Zee

Welcome to you and Typhoon. He's a real beauty!

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

Hello and welcome, I'm new too. I had the same misconceptions as you, I never knew about bettas until I literally googled "fish for 25 litre (5g) tank" and was surprised to see bettas pop up!
