I decided to join this website because it's nice to know there are other people as crazy about Bettas as I am.
I got my first Betta, Pyro, 3 years ago during my freshman year at college. Shortly after getting him I bought 3 other male bettas(in separate tanks of course) and named them, Captain Bubblesworth(cause thats just funny), Picasso(fish looks painted), and Champagne Supernova(bright orange guy) because I simply loved these fish. They're beautiful and hardy, and they traveled with me from college to home every summer and vice versa, no problem. I still have Pyro, Capt. Bubblesworth, and Picasso. Sadly, Champagne passed away last week, very sudden and it still confuses me why exactly he died. It could've been old age, he was approximately 4. I felt ridiculous crying over a fish, but 3 years is a long time and I got attached to these guys. I couldn't stand just feeding 3 fish every day so I decided to find a new Betta as my fourth. Now I have Topaz, little blue eyed crowntail male that cheers me up with his interesting colors. All the time I'm finding new ways to keep these guys happy and decorate their tanks. Its an awesome hobby, it just sucks when you lose one! Anyways, I'm hoping to gain more Betta knowledge on this website and learn other peoples' stories, so feel free to share!
