I am new to this forum, but I have been a lurker for awhile now. I cannot tell you how much I have learned by reading threads and such. Thank you!
I have never owned a Betta before, so Bubbles (yes that is his name) is my first. I grew up as most kids did, with goldfish.
Anyway I got Bubbles on Thursday of last week. Today I got my first bubble nest from him! So I can tell he is happy and feels safe. His personality is starting to show. He flares up a lot and just is cute as can be.
He is a beautiful Betta (I think!). I just adore his colors. Not sure what kind he is, but regardless, he is beautiful.
I have 2 cats, who now love watching Betta-Fish TV. They just sit and watch but they don't ever try to go for the tank. He doesn't seem to mind them either.
The only minor mistake I have made is getting him a 1 gallon tank. After reading this board and various other online sites, I have decided to get a bigger tank for him. So I ordered a 3 gallon online tonight. So his home is about to get much bigger! I am sure anything beats that darn cup they come in.
Anyway here are a few photos. Hope it's okay to post them.
Thank you again!

Not happy I interrupted her program.
