Also he is the same fish as the same with the 3rd fish in my signature. I just realized that he grew some black bands within a week or so. I just got him for less than a month not sure exactly

My new (and first) Betta!

So I am brand new (as in bought him today) to the Betta fish owner club. Ha.
I've used this sight a lot for researching how to best be a Betta care taker. I've never even had my own fish, but my boyfriend got me the Back to the Roots Aquafarm for Christmas because I wanted a fish and because I like gardening.

Well here's my new Betta! He has no name yet, so any suggestions are great!
I've been calling him "Corn Cob" because in the pet store he TOTALLY looked like a corn cob with the green silk/husk. So cute. That's why I picked him. It was him or a solid blue veiltail, but the blue was very aggressive. He attacked my fingers on the cup when I picked it up to look at him. This little guy on the other hand was the only yellow, very unique looking and he was really friendly/curious seeming.

Anyways, here he is!




Not sure his technical color name... but he has a light, LIGHT yellow/orange body, with light green fins that kinda turn to turquoise at the ends... he also has a slight bit of pink and turquoise at the face and blue eyes. His top fin has a curly-q and has been damaged a little, probably during shipping.

He's VERY curious. Since we put him in his new home he has checked everything out.

He's in a 3 gallon tank with a small heater. I'm gonna try to keep him at about 80 degrees. I put plants in there, smooth rocks and a Betta hammock. I'm gonna add a little cave or something so he can hide in it, but they didn't have one at Petco that wasn't sharp near the entrance (and I don't want him to tear fins).
Later I think I will get him a oto catfish or snail as a ''buddy'' to clean. He hasn't flared or acted aggressive at anything, and sadly the tank kind of has a mirrored side with the water in it.
I also got duck weed (fake) for the top of the tank, but because the aquaponic garden is above it just got clumped up. Plus after opening the package it was too sharp feeling.

Let me know what you think! Name or tank suggestions!?

Thanks for all your great tips and allowing me to join the fish community! :)
