First betta ever!

Hey guys! As the title suggests, I just got my first betta ever so you could say I'm relatively new to the world of betta fish/this forum so any help will be welcomed with open arms. Here he is.

Solomon He's black with a red tail and fins, with little tiny spickle spackles of blue. What a beautious halfmoon.


Sorry pics were taken with my girlfriend's iPhone so they're not too good but i hope you can see well enough.

He is beautiful !
I have my boy about 6 months. Look at Betta Fish Care Made Easy on here.
This is a great website, my boy was on his side. I looked up what to do and found out he was constipated. I nursed him back to health with the advice from folks here and he is back in the community tank, from a hospital 2 qt container, about 3 weeks now and doing fine.
Best wishes, they are amazing fish !

Thank you, and yes they are amazing. I've had him for a day but I've noticed that he already has a routine and a favorite spot, he has a such a cute personality. They're so interesting, can't wait for another

Did you say can't wait for another? Just be sure the other is in a different tank. I'd get the hang of caring for this one first for a while. Yes, I see with all my fish (I have 14 incl my Betta) that they do have personalities, eating styles etc.

Thank yooooou shannon and Olympia!
Oh Shannon it's like jet black at the front and then at the back it's red out lined in black and the top of his body is the same only with a stripe of blue going from his tail to the end of his top fin :)
And thanks for the advice, mama!
