Hi, all!

Hullo everyone! I'm Red, just joined. I've had betta since I was in fifth grade, have always loved them. Just recently acquired two more, a halfmoon (Tardis) and an EE (Bowie). Tardis is recovering from not feeling so well. I believe he had a little swim bladder issue, and his fins were in pretty bad shape. But he's on the up and up, and is spunky and active once more!

They're both in one gallon tanks, but I'll be upgrading them to 2.5 gallons soon (come on, tax refund!). We currently don't have the space for anything larger, but eventually they'll be in 5 gallon tanks, once we have our own home again. Currently using silk plants, will eventually have live plants once I learn a bit more about how to keep them alive, lol.

I also have a German shepherd dog and a ball python. I'm incredibly passionate about animals, and my husband is resigned to the fact that our house will be a zoo/aquarium one day (I have a 55 gallon tank just waiting for me to move into a home of my own and fill with cichlids!).

I will probably do a lot of lurking and very little posting, as I am shy and self conscious about the formal way I talk on forums. I'm not stuck up, just polite, I swear!

Hello there MadameRed and welcome to the forum. Looking forward to what you share with us here. I prefer "reply" to "make a thread" myself lol, shy... yeah for sure in many ways this forum is really good therapy for that. Enjoy!

Hello! Welcome.
No worries. No pressure here. There is so much material to read here one could go years without ever having to post.
One thing though, you have to brag on your Betta and we need pictures!

I swear
