New to forum, Old to bettas

By way of introduction, hi! I'm a pediatrician and animal lover, had a betta as a kid that I loved for 2 years, just got another 2 months ago- "Keller", (not "killer" as he will never be bred to fight or kill). He's adorable, he moved into a 10g tank today, wiggles like crazy when he sees me, has incredible curiosity about the outside world, and my goal is to keep him healthy and happy. I'm a novice re: betta fish, but my cat has lived 15 years (80 in human) and still thrives on love so I'm hoping with the help of occasional advice from this forum I can provide the same deserved care to Keller.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Bettas are addicting aren't they? I've got 6 boys and if I had any more room, there would be more.

Keller must be one happy fish with all of that room in a 10 gallon.

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

Thanks for the welcome! Keller's a blue male VT, striking colors if you can catch him still enough to see. You've got to sneak up on him when he's sleeping...

When I figure out how to make my Android phone talk to my computer I will post a picture:)
