Hi Everybody!

I am new to this forum, but not to fishkeeping. I have had a 10 gallon with five guppies, but totally did it all wrong. However, when I moved, I gave it away and decided to get a betta, since I had been into the idea of one for a while. Needless to say, I thought they were amazing fish with loads of personality, since I did my research and got him a five gallon tank, heated and filtered, with an anubias and a little cave, with a few silk plants. He's happy and thriving, and was, truely, my gateway fish. Right now, the fish, cleverly named Mr. Fishy, is happy and thriving. A close up of him is below, along with a shot of his current tank. I found my little guy at Walmart, while I was browsing. That's right, Walmart. My Walmart can have some beautys, and I couldn't leave him there, to be bought for a little, 0.5 gallon tank. I am happy to be here, and hope you guys are happy to have me!

Oh wow! He is a looker. He looks a bit like my new boy, Raku.

Exclamation Welcome

Hello! Good luck with your new betta! I just wanted to warn you about something. I think I have seen that beehive decoration on a thread that said it was dangerous (paint chipped off)It might not have been the same one but I suggest that you keep an eye on it just in case.

Thanks for the warning! I will keep an eye on it, and if it bubbles, I'll take it out. It's so adorable though, I might have to put a layer of aquarium silicone over it to lock in the paint
