I found this site when researching the Betta. I've decided I want to get one for my daughter (10 months, but she'll enjoy it) and really needed to read up on them because I couldn't imagine keeping them in that itty bitty bowl! We don't keep cats and dogs contained in such small areas, how is it nice to coop them up? We haven't made any purchases yet, I need to do a lot more reading on here so I can do this right the first time! I definitely have a few questions, but I will try to find the answers around the site first! I know people hate repeating themselves when the answers are already out there, but if anyone can direct me to a thread of acronym meanings that'd be great!
I've decided to to a 10G, soil bottom, live plant set up. It seems snails are pretty vital, but I'm hoping to get away with 1 non asexual snail (assassin?) and some ghost shrimps and possibly an angel fish down the road to keep the betta company!
Anyways, hi from Canada!
