Before I go continue on, I would like a chance to introduce myself.
My name is Samantha but I prefer to be called Sam. I am 18 years old and have been a fish lover most of my life.
Growing up my mother wasn't the biggest pet fan and with my father being in the military it was just easier to keep fish in case we have to ever move. A favorite of fish of my mother's are bettas and the first ever family pet we had was a blue/red/orange male veiltail named "Celebration Rainbow"; I was 5 so cut me some slack
Over the years we had many more bettas, numerous amounts of fair won goldfish, and my baby, Buddy, until finally, when I was 9, I received a 10 gallon tank with my choice of any fresh water fish for my birthday... the choice was obvious, I got a royal blue male veiltail whose name I cannot remember and my own personal expedition into the betta world began.
The following is a light of pets I have had over the years that have passed:
Bettas (Mail and female, all but 1 veiltail)
Goldfish (Black Moors being my favorite)
Catfish (all types)
African Dwarf Frogs
Countless other breeds of fish
I really hope I haven't forgotten any...
The following are my current pets:
- 12 year old Husky/Black Lab mix
This boy is my #1 baby <3
- African Dwarf Frog
Hemorrhoid, Harry and Ronda
- Zebra Danios
(Hermione, Harriet, and Ronald have unfortunately passed, excuse the odd names, I am a huge Harry Potter name and I attempted to choose similar names for opposite genders for my other fish)
- Red Veiltail
- Blue Vieltail
- Blue Veiltail
- Yellow/Blue/Copper Halfmoon
