This is a perfect example of what I dislike the most about this forum. Everyone tries to be helpful, but the tank size issue is beaten to death! What better way to scare someone away from the forum and from potentially learning better and better ways to care for their fish than to hound them in one of their very first posts! If we were to all just congratulate a new member on their new fish and realize that ANY tank is better than the filthy, nasty cups these fish live in at the pet stores, most likely the member will stick around here and do enough reading to piece together what they need to give their fish an ideal home.
With that, let me say - Congratulations, jloyer, on your new fish. He's a beautiful boy. And thank you for rescuing another betta from his little prison cell. Stick around... there really is some great information to be learned here.
