Hi from the Sunshine State!

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing great!

I just bought my very first fish ever from Petsmart last Friday (translation: I am a total newbie in everything aquatic). He is a dragon scale betta named Ninja (don't ask). I never thought I would like fish (I've grown up with dogs) but he is so pretty and I'm already attached to him!

I love these forums!!!

Welcome! Your definitely among friends. I must warn you though, you can't just have one when you'r apart of this group lol. It's contagious. One person get a new one (or joins the forum with their new fish) which makes you and everyone else want a new one. and then they get a new one, which nudges the ones who have held off to get a new one. Then they do and post pics of their new fish. and then the vicious cycle resumes :P that being said, pictures?

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

welcome to the forum.
I grew up with hunting dogs my self, being a good dog owner is closer to being a good betta owner then one might think so im shur you well love it.
My hunting dogs love to watch my tanks, sometimes i think they like the bettas more then i do lol.

Ther is nothing on tv... time to watch the fish tank. Bettas hours of fun.
