I started out as another betta owner misguided by pet stores, so this forum in particular really helped in realizing how to actually care for my little buddy. Even when I tried to right things for my betta Leviathan, I made mistakes - but various threads in this forum were still there to help me along with those OH NO and HMM moments.
It's high time to stop lurking!
This is my little buddy, Leviathan. He's extremely active and the lone bro in his 5.5g home. I'm too lazy to bring in extra lighting, so I've got to sneak up to the tank with my camera once he's still and I'm certain he hasn't noticed me in order to get a clear-ish shot of him. Today I brought in a few live plants and must have rearranged things in his house about a thousand times, so I'm still waiting for that to settle and have the plants grow into it a bit more
Still, there he is and that's his home - thank you! I'm looking forward to becoming a part of the community that's helped us so much.
