I recently decided to get back into the fish keeping hobby. I used to have a few tanks when I was little, and absolutely loved it. After stumbling across these forums, I've been doing alot of reading as I planned and setup my new aquarium, with a Betta in mind as it's first tenant.
Today, I went to Petsmart and picked up a 'Twin Tail Halfmoon' male, and he is now getting used to his new home. I went for a Marineland 10 gallon LED kit to give him some room (the tank has been up and running for close to a week now with appropriate chemicals, and a stable environment so far).
He seems to be doing well so far, actively exploring and inspecting the aquascape with no signs of distress (that I'm aware of anyway...)
Comments and suggestions are always welcome. I'm a bit rusty at this, but I want to provide a healthy, stimulating environment for my new Betta.
I look forward to contributing to the community :)
