My first Betta Tank

This is my first Betta! And I am loving him.

Little back story: So while I have other fish tanks this is my first Betta. About 6 weeks ago I set up a planted desk tank and let it cycle (I noticed alot of people don't cycle their Betta tank coz they are a hardy fish. That doesn't mean it won't harm the fish and cause them pain!) And then my journey began to find my dream Betta. I absolutely will not take a fish home unless I love them! So 6weeks later and many many trips to every lfs and petshop in my area I finally fell in love today with the one Betta type I swore I didn't want. A blue veil tail.

Isn't he just! I've been really fussy and looked at so many Bettas and went home empty handed every time. But something about him made me want him.

Gorgeous veil tail! It's always odd when you pick up a one that you didn't think you'd get or be interested in! I'm glad Kabluee found a good home :).
