I am starting with nothing, so I thought it would be fun (and educational for me) to play a little game with you more experienced and educated people.
Imagine you go back to no fish, no tanks, no plants, no nothing. Yet you have this burning desire for bettas. The tank is going in your office, where you spend waaaaaay too much time. Not a huge office, but there is a window with bright afternoon light, and little traffic.
Just for fun, let's say money isn't a limiting factor.
What would you do? What would you avoid like the plague? Extra points for wild flights of fancy, and practical advice that pertains to my situation.
