Just became interested in Bettas...

Hi I'm new here, just registered today and have been reading threads on here for just a few days. Can't wait to tell you all about my betta that I plan to get. I have cared for a lot of fish in the past, but bettas just recently intriged me and I decided to get one and start up my tank again. I was wondering if you had any tips on the best kind to look for? Or anything a newbie betta owner should know? I DO know never to put two or more males together, anything else important?

P.S. I am going to get a manual for betta care as well.

Hello and welcome to the forum! Look for one that is active and looks healthy and has a bubblenest going in his cup. A 2.5 gallon or largertank is what is usually recommended. Also, a heater would be a good thing to have. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Thanks, and I'll be sure to post every step of the way, and of course when I get him, I'll get pics.

Sounds about right. Another thing is not to house males and females together. They'll fight just as much as two males. And no tank buddies unless you have a tank 10+ gallons. Drama pretty much covered everything else. Good luck
