Hello, everyone. My name is Layni and I am new to fish keeping in general. I chose to go with bettas because I have heard they are incredibly hardy and forgiving fish. Well... unknowingly I was about to kill them before I found this forum. 60 degree water, no heater, tiny bowls, no filters. A few hundred dollars later and each betta is swimming happily in their own three gallon tanks with heaters, live plants and nice filters that I baffled. I also have two platies that are in with one of my bettas and they all love to circle around each other, but the betta has been good. Barely flares at them at all now that he's gotten used to them.
This hobby is incredibly addicting and I love watching the fish swim around their tanks. They are so beautiful and just make my day when I come up and they follow my finger. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself to some of the other wonderful keepers around here.
