My name is Sarah and I only just decided to get my first Betta within the last few days. I recently graduated from college, and since where I live doesn't allow cats or dogs, I went with a fish (Which I had to get special permission for). I live in what is lovingly referred to as "The Great White North", also known as Michigan, and work in a campground. I really don't know what else to say....I'm a capricorn, who tends to be introverted (so if I don't answer right away you know why), and I love how relaxing watching fish can be. (The campground is on a lake so I watch Bass and Bluegills mostly, sadly usually while I'm trying to catch them for dinner though)
Hello, and Welcome to the forum Sarah, I would love to hear more about your betta, do you have a tank picked out that you have in mind? Also if no tank yet, how are you housing your betta, what color is he/she do you have some pix you can show us?
They are very exiting to watch, especially when they have a lot of swim room, and I have currently 3 bettas all male..2 of which are rescue fishy's I love my lil guys so much, they all have incredible and different personalities, Did you give your betta a name yet? Keep us updated on your new fishy:) And if there is anything you want to know, do not hesitate to ask:)
I've been dying to get a girl just so I can name it Bijou :) Problem is, I keep finding stunning males at Petco of all places. The one about 1/2 hour from me has a great supplier of males and there are always so many to choose from.
I'm holding at six only because I've used up every inch of available space with tanks. Be warned that they are addicting.
Lol, that's why I'm restricting myself to one 2gal tank. Which is sadly all I have room for in my very, very small apartment. I was going to get a female at first and name her Beatrice, after the character in "Much Ado About Nothing".
Well I can't wait to see what you end up picking out. It's hard to resist those fabulous male tails if you're limited to one betta only. But some of the ladies have those big eyes in a tiny face and they can be hard to resist too.
