Smile New to Betta Keeping and the Site!

Hello Everyone,
My name is Chris and im 14 years old. Yes maybe a little young for fish thought by some but I got mine today and both of us (myself and fish) are enjoying each others company. I've been ready for awhile because I've read 8 books on fish, aquariums and betta's in the past few weeks. Also I have watched videos and gone onto numerous web pages. I got my Blue Crowntail Betta from PetCo today and I've named him Squirtle but everyone calls him Squirt. If the sun hits him in a certain spot you can see some purple and green. I've made a feeding chart and set up the tank, acclimated him to temperature and put him in the tank all by myself. During my care he was never in danger because I knew what to do and my dad was across the room if I needed any help. Soo anyways about myself is I like food and listing to music. I also like to make films with my sister on YouTube and here's the link to the channel.
You can always send me a friend request or chat with me because it's nice to connect with fellow Betta keepers! Once my mom gets her camera charged I will take pictures of Squirt!

Hi Chris and welcome to the forum

Congratulation on your new buddy Squirtle.

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

Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.
RIP Nightmare!
