Smile Long story, not short!

Hello all : ) I realized I never properly introduced myself, I'm 19 and come from the land of Las Vegas. I've had bunnies and ferrets as pets but never fish!

Here's how it all started:

A little over a year ago, in senior year, my teacher got a betta for the class from a student. He lay in his little .5 gallon w/ no filter, heater, and just a few rocks at the bottom. He looked miserable :(
I didn't know anything about bettas at the time, I just knew what they sold them at Walmart. I began to research up on them and the more I learned, the angrier I became.
Unfortunately, they took the betta home before I could snatch him up.

A few months later, while visiting my aunt in California, she came home with a betta and claimed it was mine from now on. A red, double tail halfmoon male :) I was in love. However, I was scared that he wouldn't make the trip home, something my aunt didn't really think through. Eight months later and he's still swimming! He survived through all of my noob moments being the first fish I ever owned, even suffered a little bit of fin rot (I kick myself over it to this day ) but has since recovered very nicely. I plant to keep him spoiled and happy for as long as he's my little Tales <3
