Hey my names Kyle and my girlfriend Kate and I are new betta owners. This is our betta story. I got my girlfriend a minibow 1and slim heater from that fish place for Valentine's day and a few days later we went to PETCO and she picked out her baby an named it squishy. In a short week i have learned alot from the people on her and changed alot. The minibow 1 was returned an a tetra 5 gallon aquarium became squishys new home. We got a few plants and went with a adjustable heater after the slim heater stopped working only being 4 days old. Squishy is happy in his new home and we love watching him swim around. Thanks for all of the help!
