Talking Hey everyone! Newbie here!

I just brought home my little betta buddy earlier today :) His name is Charles Wallace (after the character in A Wrinkle in Time), or Chuck for short. He's absolutely great. That's him in my avatar. I think he's a veil betta? I'm not totally sure what the different names are, or how to tell.

So I'm almost completely new to caring for fish, but I hope you guys can help guide me to do what's best for my betta!
Nice meeting you all, and I'm looking forward to becoming a part of this community.

Hello and welcome...
Keep an eye on your water quality ( ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) and I'm sure your fish will prosper!
Good luck

Thanks! I'll make sure to do that. He seems content at the moment, he swims around and rests inside the little log.
I'm happy I found this website! It's helped me a lot.

Hello and welcome to you and Chuck

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