New Here n_n

Hey there! My name is Kelly and I'm new to fish but definitely not new to keeping animals I currently am a member of my local livestock club, a member of the American Rabbit Breeders Associacion, and breed pedigreed and show quality mini rex rabbits on a small scale (I have seven at the moment). I love my bunnies, they're my babies
As I said though, I'm new to fish. I've had bettas as a child but it was the little bowl routine, which as far as I knew was how you're supposed to keep them. Yesterday I bought a lovely betta and a small bowl on impulse (I know, I should know better). I got home and started researching. Uh oh Some things need to change. I LOVE watching Elmo so in the next couple days I'll be purchasing a 10gal and dividing it into three. Is that alright? It'll have a heater along with some lovely aquatic plants.

Here's Elmo

Thanks (: I got him on Saturday and did a 50% water change a few minutes ago. I can't wait to get my new tank so I can quit bothering him so often, haha.
