Greetings from Florida!(:

Hiya! I've been apart of the forums since summer 2011 when I started up again with bettas and was given a lot of help on the proper care of my fishies. My name is Joel, I'm 14, and I live in Florida! Yes, yes. That magical place that doesn't require heated tanks except for in the winter time (trust me- I went down that road in the summer time too!) is always blisteringly hot (82 degrees out today in the middle of summer!)

I'm the proud owner of 5 beautiful bettas, Garland, Douglas, Heather, Skyden and Brent.
So, hi. (:

Love the handsome guy in your post. Since Texas is in such a drought bet we beat your blistering heat this year :). Sounds like you have quite a crew on your hands, so Merry Christmas to you and yours also.

Hi Joel,

Nice to meet you It's currently 24 degrees F here in the Northeast.

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

Hey Joel and thanks for being my first friend on here. You helped me plenty. Awesome to know the're some people from Florida on here : )

"Next time you feel small and insignificant, look at your betta, his whole world is on your table or whatnot. See how small his place is in such a big world? Now think of every time that fish has made you smile. If something as small as a betta can have that effect on a person, imagine what an effect you can have on the world."~ Olympia
