After a little over a year of owning betta and lurking on this site I have finally become a member! You can just call me Orenjii! I am a girl and I have been into the betta fish hobby since March of 2011.
I have owned three betta fish so far, Ryan, a navy blue veil tail who is about a year and a half old, Moon a opal-color like double tail who passed away unexpectedly after only 4 days of owning him, and Snowy who is pictured in my avatar who just passed away from a bad case of re-occuring fin rot yesterday who was about 10 months old. He was quite a character and he will be missed.
I am currently looking for a new fish and I hope to continue the hobby(with more success :P) in the future! See you around!
