Hi, just like you I lurked for a few days before finally setting up an account :D
He's gorgeous btw! I've had mine for only 3 days and already I find just watching him makes me feel calmer and happier, so I think he's the perfect partner for your emo issues :)

Aww thanks Kali @:)

I've been struggling with PTSD for a couple of years, but I'm stubborn and refuse to take medicine for it (Well, I did try about 6 different kinds before but all of them made me sleep too long or made me feel numb and distant). I wanted to get a pet to help combat my inner loneliness and having him in my life has really made things more manageable for me.

btw I love your username... Is that your real name? Reminds me of the goddess Kali from Hindu culture @:)

Hello and welcome, I am quite familiar with the fish picking me instead of the other way around. After my first betta passed, I thought I was going to hold out for a true green betta, which is pretty rare. Despite the cool shimmer in his pic that appears green, Rocky is generally blue and violet, but green is his stirred-up color change. I really like the shells you plan to add for substrate, and as for tankmates, I swear by bristlenose plecos (one in a 10 gallon). they clean the place for you, but do make water changes more frequently necessary

Hello Cotton19! I just saw your post tonight for the first time!
@:) it is very sweet how the fish chooses its owner <3
tankmates-Picasso's got 2 corycats (Salt & Pepper) and he used to have a blue mystery snail friend Helix, but Helix passed away (leaving behind 53 babies **bites lip**STRESSED)
I wish I could sell them to people on here, but I havent been keeping up with my posts!
