Smile Ah well, I couldn't resist. :)

I'm a new betta owner, and this is my first post.

One month ago, I went to Petsmart. They recommended bettas as the 'easiest fish for beginners.' One little female caught my eye. (Probably because she was blue, and I *heart* blue!)

That night, I found this website. And I watched my little blue girl swim around her cold 1 gallon tank, while I read lots of posts.... The next day, her home was upgraded to a 3 gallon Critter Keeper with a heater and silk plants.

Two days ago, I needed more water conditioner, so I went back to Petsmart. A blue VT male caught my eye. "No no no," I said, "I don't need another fish!" So I grabbed the water conditioner and walked away. Then I went back and looked at the fishie again. He looked so sad in his little icky cup..... But no. I already had a fish.

For some reason, I wandered around the store. Lots. I kept going back to stare at the sad little fish. And then, I picked up the cup, bought another 3 gallon Critter Keeper, silk plants, heater, thermometer.

So now, I have TWO little blue fish. Two days later, he looks MUCH better than he did in his cup. He's is definitely a VT. I'm pretty sure the female is, too.

So here they are. I haven't come up with names yet....

I noticed the crowntail bits on the female too.

Congrats on your fishies!

Oh. Really? Because I'd thought she had just shredded her fin, and needed to regrow it. LOL! I've been anxiously checking for signs of disease or fin rot. It's a BIG relief to think that it could be something like that!

Ooooo. Crowntails are *pretty*! She's a feisty little thing too. She swims all over the tank, and gets excited whenever she sees me. (She probably hopes that I'm going to feed her again. LOL)

Oh my. My brain just shorted out thinking about that.

I'm just a fish newbie, hoping to keep two bettas alive. Not sure I want to take on a the process of breeding, with all its potential risks and loads of responsibilities.

I could just see myself with 50 three gallon critter keepers - each filled with a little blue fish. LOL
