First Bettas Name: Pooh
Lived for: a few weeks
Type: ?
Color: never got any :(
How old I was: 52
Home: 5 gallon filtered but not cycled

I succumbed to the baby betta fad. since the tank was not cycled, I think the ammonia spike killed her. I did not do it right.

Everything went perfectly with my second betta. Now planning a third!

i could not remember my first betta (I was like 4 or 5) but i remember the one that got me the betta craze
First Betta Name: Skylight
Lived for: 4 months
Type: Veil Tail
Color: Blue
How old I was: 12
Home: first a half a gallon, then i moved him into a 27 gallon (alone)
i only have a blurry shot of him:

i gave him away to my little brother (i was forced), and he kept him with 4 neon tetra's, he soon got fin rot, i wanted to help him. but my parents had no money for no medication so he died suffering

Karebear, your Comanche looks similar to Poseidon or what I imagine he will look like soon. Sorry for the loss. ):

Thats so sad!

I don't have a pic of my first betta. He lived in a 1g bowl with no heater. I was 14 and all my fish care info came from my friend who kept her fish the same way. His name was Fishy if I recall correctly...
