Hello from the ATL

Hi there!

I stumbled across this forum while trying to find more information about proper care for betta... It seems I came to the right place. :)

I recently adopted my first betta from a Walmart, and quickly followed with another from a small town pet store (ironically to me, the pet store betta seems more like a rescue than the Walmart one... :/). I'd been going by my memory of how a former roommate cared for her betta, but found that I didn't really know as much as I thought. Just reading over some of the posts here helped me learn quite a bit more! So, thank you all for your informative posts and helpful nature, and it's nice to meet you all!

So, now that I've sorta semi-introduced myself, here are my boys~

This is Kipposhi, the Walmart-bought Veiltail.
-- I bought him Monday, and he's quite the active chap.

And this is the pet-store rescue, Jubei.
--I got him only a couple days ago, and this is how he looked in his tiny cup that I bought him in, too. He's really timid right now, but I hope that as he adjusts to the bigger environment, he perks up. :)... I'm also hoping that his coloring is how he was bred, and not a disease that I haven't recognized...

Both are in smaller bowls at the moment, but I'm planning to move Kipposhi to a tank I bought today soon, and find another tank for Jubei when he seems more adjusted, and a bit healthier.

Welcome to the forum, you will meet many very friendly and knowledgeable people here. I found this forum the same way! Every time I had a betta question, and searched on it, this forum came up.

I actually took those pictures last night... since then I've done a water change and added small artificial plants to their bowls, so the timid guy has a place to hide if he wants, and the not-so-timid one has something different to look at. I might get some real plants later on when they're in more spacious environments, but my wallet's pretty light at the moment, so that will be waiting until I'm not so broke.
