Long-Time Lurker, First-Time Poster

Okay, not *long-time* but a couple of weeks. ;) I came across this forum while doing some research to see what kind of pet would be a good choice for our family. My hubby and I have two daughters (Bug is almost 10 and Pearl is 7), and this is a case of ďyou can have a pet but only if you take care of it!Ē

Knowing that I will actually be responsible for much of the care even if the girls donít lose interest or drop the ball, I was just looking for a small pet that would be as low maintenance as possible. That being said, I also know that thereís a difference between low maintenance and doing the absolute minimum, which is what led me to this site.

Iím happy to say that I do think a betta is the best choice for us right now, and Iím really looking forward to setting up a nice 5-gallon tank with my girls. Theyíre very excited, and I want them to have a pet they can enjoy and successfully take care of (with lots of Momís help).

I hadnít expected to find bettas so interesting, but everything Iíve read on here has really given me an appreciation for them as more than just pretty fish. :) Iím actually pretty excited, myself! ;)
