I got Floyd 3 weeks ago to the day! To commemorate this occasion, I decided to post a couple pictures. He's definitely looking male to me, and kind of like a crowntail (maybe? hopefully? =P)!

If you can keep a betta alive for 7 years I think you can handle a baby, lol. Sheesh, you'll have the baby for 10 years!

Some one is in love! They look great. The new little one has a beautiful red color. I'd say post update pics, but I don't think I need to say that to such a proud betta parent. If we start carrying little pics of our babies in our wallets you know we will officially be considered the crazy fish people, lol.

Lmao I've been bitten by the betta bug, that's for sure.. it's real bad! I've been looking for a soothing hobby, though, something healthy. Think I definitely found it. Thank you very much! ^.^ I will definitely keep posting! I've been trying to refrain from doing so every day, it's so difficult sometimes lol.

she was like my first betta, I got her when i didn't know how to take care of them. I honestly don't know any tips on them:) I guess she was just one of those bettas that live a long time. I do have one tip though, keep up on water changes, feed a variety of foods, and always keep a sharp eye on them! She would have lived longer I'm sure, but I noticed when I cleaned out her tank after she died that one of the decorations was rusting -.-

Me too! I'm with everyone in being morally outraged that Petco sells betta babies, but on the same note, it's just so rewarding to be able to give them good housing and care from such a young age.
