Hi everyone! I thought it was finally time to properly introduce myself, since I've already asked for help and have been lurking around for a little while.
I had 2 betta fish in college, but neither lasted very long. When my boyfriend announced he was starting up his 35 gallon community tank I decided it would be nice to have a fish for my desk at work. After getting Mason, a marble VT male, I began to do some research into bettas and realized exactly how little I knew! That led me here.
Let's see...about me...I love reading and I enjoy writing, but horses and horseback riding are my passion. I live in Michigan, but grew up in Pennsylvania. I currently have 3 cats, lease a horse, and have 2 bettas. Mason, mentioned above, was my first purchase just over a month ago. Harley, my red VT male, was just purchased on a whim last Thursday. I was at Petco and saw him struggling to swim despite being bloated. Since I knew no one else would take him he came home with me!
That's about it...I'm glad to meet you all.
