Hi - newbie here!

Hi - I've lurked here a bit.

My office mate & I got a betta - Freddy (that's him in the avatar) last spring for our office & now I'm getting one for home

I have a 6 gal that I'm starting to set up this weekend. I want to get the gravel & a few plants in then look for my new friend next week.

The office tank is tiny - the one in the pic is under a gal office mate already had it. I upgraded to a Betta Cube - a little bigger but still too small.

We really don't have the room for much bigger (we're in cubes ourselves!) - but we're trying to be creative so I'm hoping to come up w/ a better solution soon. We change most of the water every week & he's been ok so far.

Anyway - my home tank will be much better!

Years (YEARS) ago I had a 10 gal w/ a variety of fish & then we went to a 20 gal saltwater. Loved it - had sea horses, then a yellow tang, sea urchin & cleaner shrimp.

So I'm not a fish virgin

But I am a bit rusty (that was bad!).

I love Freddy - he's very cool - & need a simple easy to care for set-up (health issues) - so figured a Betta is just what I need at home.

Love this site - such great info!!

I hope to learn lot's & show off my new buddy when I adopt him!

Welcome to the forum! I love this site too, I'm certainly not an expert so it helps to get input from different people. Freddy is gorgeous! Is he a black VT?

Welcome! You have such a pretty guy, and it's nice that you're upgrading his living quarters. He'll love it.

Is that wood in the tank?

Welcome to the forum! I warn you, once you get one, you never go back. I now have eight :) It's totally worth the time, though. Beautiful boy, that Freddy is!

Hi Zoragen;

Two Freds in one day, do we qualify for some sort of record? I live in two 12x12 rooms plus a bath, so I get the space premium concept. I also tend to a jack loom, some metal smithing tools and a few other extraneous items, like piles of textbooks.
I'm not an aqua-virgin either, but like you, I have a few barnacles. FredFish and I just survived the first crisis, I'm sure you will do fine.
Keep is posted!

Giypsy & FredFish

Thanks guys!

The first tank was one of those little ones w/ a plastic office set up & he's under the desk in the pic.

I'll post a pic of that one & then one with his new set up.
