New here, introducing myself!

Hi all you fellow betta lovers! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 24, live in the USA and have been keeping bettas since I was 11. My first betta was a VT I named Oscar-he really fit the name. He was with me for 5 years before he passed away, and got me hooked on bettas!

Currently I have 1 Dragonscale betta- Draco, 1 Halfmoon betta- Shadowfax and 1 VT betta- Big Red. If I had more space, I'd have a bunch more.

One of these days I'll have myself a community tank as well...once I have space somewhere! hehe.

Stunning boys! <3 I love Shadowfax's smoky-looking coloring, and red on Draco and Big Red is so vibrant. :3

Thanks! :3 Shadowfax was an impulse buy...He is so intelligent. He follows people when they leave or enter my room and loves to people watch. I couldn't leave him there.

Draco is a blast to watch! He reminds me of an oscar.

Here's a pic I just took of Big Red and his tank. (Excuse the sticker on the front. I haven't had a chance to scrape it off...I cleaned the tank 2 days ago and like a dummy, arranged everything in the tank backwards...xD His tank is also a work in progress)



His tank

Hello and welcome to the forum and betta addiction land.

I'm in love with Big Red but all of your fish are beauties.

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