Hello!! (newly de-lurking)

I decided to finally register, instead of just poke through here and sneak on by. ;) I've had enough of wanting to make comments, having to hold back!

We finally allowed our kids to pick out a fish last weekend, knowing full well that care is pretty much going to be MY responsibility... our son is almost 10, but away a lot; our daughter is only 4. *sigh* XD

They decided on a betta, so after getting things settled around the house, I tried to pick out some relatively healthy-looking boys and let them decide between those. Our new boy is a gorgeous blue/red CT, with lots of oddities. He's been LOVING his new space, about 1.5-2g hex with two plants and a cave. ^_^ (and light and heater, yadda yadda, no filter; I'm dealing with changes)

I hadn't kept fish in over a decade, but I'm re-hooked again already, and annoying my husband to no end. Just today I saw a beautiful boy I'd love to take home and OOH and AAH over. From what I could see (I'm short, he was on a top shelf, and I wasn't going to risk shaking him around just for a look) he's a white iridescent with a few small black marblespots, and maybe a bit of DT in him as his fin has a nice 'dent' right in the center. I behaved. (still sulking, admittedly. ;) )

We need more space in the house. THAT isn't going all that well, though; we're crowded enough in as it is! Too much junk to get rid of, then I might be able to go adopting. ^_^;;

anyways.. enough rambling! HI! Pictures of Fishy (*still* otherwise nameless) forthcoming, after I get them off my darned camera....

Welcome! Sounds like my house! I hadn't had a betta since college (About 8 years ago) but got one in December. Now I have 7...or 8?? Nope, 9. And now I work at Petco in the summer (I'm a teacher). We're not really running out of room at my house, but we're running out of plugs!! Maybe no lights on the tree this year? Hehehe.

Anyway, welcome!

Hola, welcome to the forum! ^_^ Just remember two things....

1. If you have ANY questions, ASK. It's what we're here for xD
2. .... PICTURES :P This forum thrives on them.
3. Have fun. We're people who LOVE to have fun.

And thereby I show that I cannot count. And that I'm too lazy to go back up and fix it. YAY for the interwebz :3
