Greetings from a new Betta lover!

Hello everyone! I have just found this site and thought of how helpful and fun it could be to join! I'm glad to be here and I hope to meet many more betta lovers like myself here :)

I had a Veiltail Betta named Mila not to long ago, but she dies after 4 years of care. I miss her quite a bit, but now that I am over the mourning fazes I have decided to give it another go and save another betta from the store.

Before I didn't know much about betta care and after looking up on it, I'm surprised that mine had lived as long as it did. (Maybe my love for her kept her alive for so long :) )

None the less if any one can give me any advice I would totally love you guys!

If it helps any I live in Colorado :)

Hello and welcome! This really is a very nice site, and people are very helpful.

I love veiltails - sorry to hear you lost yours. Four years is a pretty good life span, though.

There's a lot of good advice on basic care in the sticky care threads here, so you might like to read through those. Good luck with your next betta!

Hello and welcome to the forum

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