Hello everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself!

My name is Shannon, and I am 28 years old! I live in beautiful Southern California, born and raised, although I did live in Reno, Nevada for a bit due to work! I am now a stay at home mom with my first (and probably only!) child, Hayden, who is 20 months old!

As for my current pets, I have a 7year old blue nose American Pit Bull Terrier named Poker, a 5 year old black shorthair cat named Jill, a 25 year old Musk turtle that my parents got for me when I was 3 named Gopher, 1 gold fish (unnamed) who lives with the turtle who surprisingly hasn't eaten him for 2 years (was supposed to be a snack for him......), and 2 beautiful male bettas!

I've kept many aquariums in my life, I've always had a love for them. My favorite tank ever was my 50 gal saltwater seahorse tank, that was a lot of fun!

After a year or so of having no fish at all (besides that darn goldfish haha) I was browsing the fish section at a local pet store and eyed the bettas, and instantly fell in love with my first betta ever, Diablo. I've had him for about a year now, and I really love him dearly. I don't know much about them, but I have been reading and browsing this site for quite some time now, and finally decided to join!

Because yesterday, I got my second betta (my avatar pic), his name is Leonard. He was my friends fish, but she had been telling me for a while that she didn't want him anymore. And when I visited her yesterday and saw him in person, I couldn't leave him there! His water smelled terrible, there was a mucousy clear film all over everything, looked like some kind of bacterial growth, his tank was just in revolting conditions. She gave me his tank and everything with him, although I threw out the gravel and plants and will get him some new stuff next time I go to the store.

Anyways, sorry this is so long....ill wrap it up...each of my bettas are in their own 2 gal tank, but I do have plans to get a 10 gal long tank with divider so they have some more room to swim around and more live plants to nibble. There's only so much that I can fit in the small tanks haha.

I don't really know either. My iPad would never let me upload pictures to this site (but my phone does, weird...). Maybe try syncing the pictures to your computer from your iPad and upload it from there?

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I'm glad to have finally joined after just browsing the site for so long! I'm not much of a forum person, but these bettas are taking over my life....I got 2 more given to me today by my local small pet store owner lol.

I see a new hobby in my future.
