Just wanted to say hello!

Hello, everyone!

I'm Emily and I've been lurking here for quite awhile. I'm a little shy about posting, but I figured it was time to introduce myself.

I caught the betta bug about six months ago when my boyfriend and I were fish-sitting our friend's betta. I grew attached to the little guy during the week we had him, which lead to the idea of getting a fish of my own. I put the idea on the back burner, but then I stumbled upon this site, had a Visa gift card that was about to expire, and before I knew it I had a tank set up with my very first betta. It's been a little nerve wracking being new to this, but he is such a joy to have around that I don't mind. I just want to give him a good home.

I also want to say thanks to everyone. If it wasn't for all of the advice and information that everyone shares here, I probably would have done everything wrong. Though I think this place might be enabling a betta addiction. haha

Welcome. Yes it's an addiction. If I hadn't walked away today in Petco I would have had 8 more!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

It's good to be among people who understand what it's like to not be able to walk out of a pet store without at least considering getting another fish. Everyone else just thinks I'm going to turn into a crazy fish lady.

We're all crazy. Lol Yeah, I've been so tempted to walk out with a half dozen. Where I live now I don't have access to a petstore so no new fish for me. I order from breeders now.

If my place was bigger I'd have more. I like to sit and watch them swim about. My problem is that I still have to go to the pet store for the other animals. And petco is just down the street. Ugg!
