New to the Betta World :)

Hi! I'm Niki, and my family is the proud new owner of two bettas! We received an Aquafarm for Christmas from my parents, and my daughters were so excited! They are 6 years old and 10 years old. We went to Petco to pick out our new betta, and my oldest daughter decided that she wanted to spend her Christmas money on a 20gal tank for her room. So now we have two! Their names are Gilly and Squishy and they are such pretty boys! I have been doing a lot of reading on here on how to care for these guys since it has been a while since I had an aquarium and I had never had bettas before. This place is such a great resource! Here are a couple pics. Gilly is the all red one, and is in the Aquafarm he is camera shy and more reserved than Squishy. Squishy has a 20gal tank all to himself atm, and is a very happy fish :) I keeping a close eye on the Aquafarm, 50% water changes every other day, and 100% 1x a week and added a heater. I have a feeling that it's going to lose its novelty in a few weeks and I'll be getting a bigger tank for Gilly.

Gilly



Squishy

Hi, and welcome -- gosh, what lovely fish! Gilly's rather special, imo.. I have a doubletail, too, a cello marble.. but I must say, the reds are so pretty! (I'm a huge fan of red fish..).

Bettas are so addictive, ha. Looking forward to your posts, glad you found this site such a good resource, it really has been incredibly useful to me. And the people are so nice! :)

Thanks for the welcome :) These fish are so cool, I've really been enjoying them. I can totally see how they become addictive. I already want to bring home more!

Welcome to the forum, and I'm glad you've found it to be a great resource! It certainly helped me when I bought Merlin.

No, one is never enough! I agree completely!

Your fish are beautiful and I totally agree that this place is such an abundance of knowledge! The members here could write books on betta care!
