Hi everyone! I finally decided to create an account and participate. :)
I recently purchased 2 bettas a couple of weeks ago and I am so pleased to have fish in my life again. All my life I've had aquariums around, as my dad has always kept multiple aquariums in the home. I learned a lot from observing the fish interacting with each other and it's also a great source of relaxation for me. There is something so beautiful to my eyes about the naturally planted aquarium with happy fish swimming about.
Right now I have a baby betta from petco and an adult male. They are in their own separate aquariums. I am excited to see how the baby will turn out and the male is loving his new planted home. However, the shrimp are bit scared of them so they hide until night so that they can come out and forage.
