So a friend gave me some fish supplies, she had guppies but sold them all and gave her stuff to me.
I wanted something simpler so I browsed the web and decided to get a betta. Today I went to the store and picked up a new silk plant, water conditioner, and food. I also got my first betta.
She is a crown tail female, I picked her out because she had the most colour and the local fish store never has crown tails, they only have a bunch of veil tails and a tank with a bunch of females. The females have round tails and thick bodies and the other ones look like a smaller version of the male veil tails.
My new girl is going into a 10 gallon tank, she has lots of decorations to play in and I got all this stuff and her for under $15!! Don't you love free things?
She is still in her bag and I am working on filling up her tank right now.
She needs a name still so if you think of anything give me a shout, she has a soft pale pink body with red and white fins.
Her belly is really big but I read it is from eggs.
Right now she is very pale so I will need to let her settle in before I get good pictures.
Looking forward to talking to other betta keepers!
