I am Kim, I'm 33 and live in NY. I have a husband named Sean, a 3 year old son named Henry and a fat beagle named Jack :)
My son has been fascinated with aquariums since he was very small (what kid isn't?). I have thought on and off that it would be nice to get a small tank going so he could have the excitement of a fish at home, but with me to look after it and do the mom-duty. The other day I decided to just go for it - but I needed something a beginner could handle, and also didn't want to start out dropping a small fortune. I always liked bettas and their elegant look. After some reading I headed to PetSmart and picked up the essentials. I know perhaps getting a fish from a big box store isn't "the best", but I wanted to try my hand and give one of the poor dudes floating in a plastic cup a new start.
He was labeled as a dragon scale crown tail male. He's a pretty turquoise color in the light, darker blue in the shade. He is yet unnamed but I am sure we'll have something good soon :) He's living in an Aqueon 2.5 MiniBow tank with live anacharis. I look forward to expanding/changing/elaborating on his living space but I want to see how the first few weeks go like this.
Thanks for reading and I hope to have fun here!
