Starting from Scratch

Hi everyone,

Great forum here! I am getting back into fishkeeping after several years, and I really just have to have a betta again.

Last time, my Petsmart betta made it two years and a bit, without me knowing anything about what I was doing. This time, I really want to focus on making a fantastic environment for a rescued or rehomed fish.

To that end, I will be creeping all over the Planted Tank area. I live in Southeast Florida, and we have a wonderful freshwater aquarium store about an hour south of me. Not an everyday drop by, but worth the drive.

Thanks to everyone who ever contributes here. I have been reading everything obsessively, and look forward to being able to make some contributions of my own someday.

Mojo is adorable! Beautiful color.

I an currently running down a craigslist ad for a ten gallon full set up (including heater! Yay!), so I already have violated my 5 gallons max rule.

Sigh. So addictive.
