Smile Hello From Virginia - New Betta Owner

Hi guys. I'm a new betta owner! I was in a Petco, totally not intending to buy a fish, but there he was, and I fell in love. I was determined to do things right, so I did a lot of research. I got a cycled tank from a friend who was moving out, and she also gave me a tank heater and a bunch of fish supplies. So far, it's been a bit stressful. I've been worried about everything from fin rot to fish night-lights.

My avatar is my new fish. His name is Remus J. Lupin. He was sold to me as a Halfmoon betta, but I suspect he may not be. His fins are a little damaged from moving him from my friends house to my apartment, but they've already started to grow back. He lives in a 10-gallon and gets fed twice a day "Omega One Betta Buffet" (I have no idea if that's good, but he seems to love it). He shares his tank with a Marimo.

I found this forum while doing some of the research, and I hope I never have to spend too much time in the sick fish forum.

Remus seems happy, blows bubbles, and swims energetically.

Welcome to the forum! Remus is simply beautiful! Omega One Betta Buffet pellets are a good choice. You'll see on here that NLS (think I got that right XD) and Omega One are the top recommended brands for betta food.
