Hi, my name is Tonya, and I am finally a first time Betta owner. I've been wanting one for a while, because I find them to be beautiful, but never found one that I ''just HAD to have''.
Until yesterday. Completely random and unexpected, but I couldn't walk away. LOL It was a beautiful betta, marked as a female (although I have doubts).
So, I grabbed some tablets to make the water safe, a 1g tank, the Betta, some gravel, and some food. (Bought a little fake plant for the tank today, and a snail...no reason, I just like snails).
Now, I plan on upgrading to a 5g in the near future, hopefully, but I grabbed what I could to accommodate the Betta for now, until I find the 5g that I want.
Anyways, feel free to say betta care facts (although I will be taking advantage of this forum and reading through all posts to soak in information!), and if you know his (or her?) coloration, please my curiosity and let me know! :)
Here are pictures I took this morning (and he's featured in my avatar). Also, feel free to guess the gender, because while I'm pretty convinced it's a male, if there's reason to suspect that the cup WASN'T mislabeled, I'd be interested in knowing.
No name yet.
