Hello out there!

This is my first post and I just wanted to say hi! My husband and I got our new betta today. He's my avatar picture, and his name is Franklin. He seems very happy to be in his new 5 gallon home as opposed to the little thing they were keeping him in! I used to have bettas a long time ago when I was little and I'm so happy to have one again.

Welcome. That is a beautiful boy you have there.

Betta Warning: Betta fish are addicting. One fish will become two fish, which will then become three fish. Eventually, you will have no counter space that does not have fish on it. Consider yourself warned.

Why thank you!

Your fish is gorgeous too! I don't think I've ever seen a Black Veiltail before! The added red wash to his fins is also kind of a cute thing too! Oh wait, or is he blue and I just can't see it? Lol sometimes when Remmy turns just the right way he goes all black with some orange in his fins.

Either way Franklin is a cutie! And yeah, it is difficult to get pictures of our Betta's haha, it's nearly the bane of our existence I think sometimes!

EDIT: Lol @ NeptunesMom but it is certainly true! I came home with Rembrandt one day and the next day I find myself with 16 Betta's and 2 on the way! Not to mention 7 other fish XD

Haha, see I know my fish XD Well...actually it was only an after thought that I decided to throw in haha.

But that's great though, he's still beautiful! And I totally think you should get more....lol I'm a bad person to talk to XD Actually I think Catw0man is the worst here haha, she's got 90 betta's and counting and most of them are from AquaBid which is a horribly blessed site. It's like ebay but you buy fish stuff and the Betta's on there are just amazing!

I feel like a warning is an appropriate thing to do.. as I am an enabler who will tell you to get another one. .
