Well I'm completely new to fish keeping. I just started living on my own sans roommate and really needed some company. I just happened to be at PetCo with a friend and thought I'd check out prices.
Well, I fell in love with my betta, West.
I feel a little bad for him, I just kind of came home with a crappy tank and starter kit. In fact, I was on here last night kind of freaking out because he seemed so pissed. But he is happy and doing well.
Just picked him up a...size 10 (gallon?) tank today so I'm about to get him moved into there. Unfortunately, this is a tank my friend happened to have, so there is no heater with it. I don't know if the smaller tank is better for him until I get a heater? But I'll do some research and figure it out.
Anyway, pictures will be posted soon once I get his tank all set up and ready to go.
I'm very glad I found this forum. Seems like I can get some great guidance in making sure West has a nice happy home.
