After reading and learning lots and lots from the members here, I finally decided to join. I am not a newbie to Bettas, but I have learned a lot from members as tried to nurse my aging fish back to health. Phil finally crossed the rainbow bridge a few weeks ago and now I have (Pope) Francis. He is young and red and a wild thing! Growing fast and almost taking pellets from my finger. So, thank for the help. I enjoy reading the posts of others who enjoy these beautiful fish!
