My name is Scott, I've just sold my house because my partner and I are in the process of moving to Hudson River valley. However I'm sort of stuck in Yakima, WA for a few more months. The partner took the dogs with him to NY, and so I decided to get a betta for company. The new guys name is Draugur (Icelandic for ghost). If you look at my profile pic you'll know why. He's ablsolutly lovely, and seems to be adapting to his new home.
I've dabbled with fish keeping in the past, but only once before with a betta. The fourm was a valuble resource as I was researching how to best provide for my new ward. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences.
Check out my album with a couple of pics of the new tank. And, if anyone has suggestions for traveling with a betta. I'd be grateful. I'll be moving across the country in December or January. Guess I didn't think too far ahead.
