Smile I'm back!

Hello everyone! I've missed you all so much. I went through some things this past month, and I've decided to return. So, yesterday morning, I woke up to a very sad sight. My little Snowbird (Salamander HMPKEE) had passed away. I also had an incident in which my guppies died off. Right now I have a panda male platy (oddly I haven't named him yet) and my precious boy, Merlin.
Hard to think that two weeks ago I owned over 10 fish, and now I'm down to 4 (including my goldfish). Anyways, I am happy to be back, and even though I may not get too dug into the fish keeping hobby (as in community tanks and such), I look forward to continuing posting here.

And for anyone who is wondering, yes I do plan on re-starting a betta rescue. Most likely next spring after marching band (yay! I'm super excited) when I have more time to dedicate. I feel that I would rather have one or two permanent betta pets, and then five or so during the spring so that I can focus on education. Please pardon if I am not able to post more frequently once school starts, as I'll have my hands full with AP classes and marching band.

So, yeah. I'm really glad to be back!

Nice to meet you :) I love bettas and I was so sad when they started dying from old age (for petstore fish), that I decided to start rescuing again.

So sorry about Snowbird, at least he's not suffering anymore. If you like, I'm going to be breeding my bettas and plan to find out how to ship them, so I can set one aside for you.

Thank you all. Yes, Snowbird's passing was unfortunate, but at least she had a good life. The guppies seem to be doing much better.

Thank you for the offer, but I do not currently have the money for shipping another betta. It's very sweet of you, though! Good luck, I hope you enjoy breeding!
