Your first Betta

What was your first betta like?

Mine was a beautiful Blue and Purple CT named Ickthoose. I'm not sure how to spell it. Haha it means fish in greek. He amazingly survived 2 years under my care. I got him when I was about 8. He lived in a 1 gallon fish bowl. I loved him a lot. It was very sad when he died. I couldn't even bury him, I made my dad.

Name: Flounder

Color: Blue and might have has red wash

Type: Veil tail

Tank: Mini bow 5 (same tank as my old boy Namu)

We couldn't bury him because he died in the middle of winter and the ground was too hard.

Betta two:

Name: Nemo

Color: Blue with lots of red wash

Type: Veil tail

Tank: Mini bow 5

I remember I told my dad I wanted to take care of my own fish. About a month later he died :( He was already two or three years old. I thought he was sleeping but when I noticed he hadn't moved at all. :((

Betta three:

Name: Namu

Color: Blue with green and some red wash

Type: Veil tail

Tank: Mini bow 5

I like to consider Namu the evil fish who brain washed me :P He was the one who had the worst water at PetsMart. The night I put him in the tank I had a red light in the hood of the tank and he started flaring at me XD. As soon as that happened I rushed to the computer and looked up bettas. I found this site: www.siamsbestbettas.com . And soon after www.bettatalk.com and that was it. He also murdered two fish. One neon and one white cloud but managed to be best friends with his cory cat.

Namu is living happily in his tank. He's gonna be around for a long time. Why right now he's riding his current on the filter :P

Name: Lt Shin

Color: Red/Purple

Type: CT

Tank: 1 gallon fish bowl

Shin refused to eat and stayed at the bottom of his bowl all day, I only had him for 4 weeks. =(
I'm going to put my other fish too, because they are pretty new (got them 2 weeks ago)

Name: William

Color: Black/Grayish Blue/Red

Type: VT

Tank: Half gallon

I feel terrible for keeping him in a half gallon. =( He is very small though. It was all I could afford. In November I am going to put him and my other fish in a divided 10 gallon tank I have, I just have to buy the supplies.

Name: Kiro

Color: Blue/Orange/Violet/Dark Purple (he's the fish in my avatar)

Type: VT

Tank: 1 gallon bowl

He'll be with William in my 10 gall in november. :)
