First-Time Betta Mom!

Hey all! Like the title says, I'm a first-time momma, who hasn't owned a fish in over a decade! I've been lurking on here, reading the advice for a few days, and I'm glad to have found you, or else I'd be lost!

Actually, that's slightly embarrassing to admit, considering that I'm a Licensed Veterinary Technician in NYS! Granted, I don't practice on fish, but all I remembered from my school days was the term "ich."

Anyways, I picked up a beautiful double-tail male at the store, and he's so cute and funny! He's in a very small tank (prepares for scolding), but he has a heater, thermometer, and conditioner, and I do partial water changes every few days. He interacts with me, and I've already seen him blow a few bubbles at the top! I plan to get a larger tank soon, but for now, this one will have to do...

No name for him yet, maybe you all can help?

Picture time!

Welcome! So long as you're doing the appropriate water changes his current tank will work. He's a pretty boy.

Thanks guys! He's kept me very entertained so far with his antics (he's already got quite the little personality), and even the cats have been doing well with him!

One is jealous because he's getting attention, another thinks he's pretty when he flutters his fins, and the rest just leave him alone...
