Hey! I'm new too. I've had bettas for a few months and been reading this forum since before I got them, but I've never posted. I figure it's about time.
*waves*
So greetings to you and hello to everyone else!

That sux!

[quote=bribri92;544034]Bad news everyone, I checked with my Hall Advisor and she said she doesn't want a fish on our hall because they are messy to clean and unsanitary... I'll be getting mine over the summer!

I work in a hospital and infection control allows me to keep my betta on my desk in a one gallon heated tank. They do not allow filters because that can spread whatever is in the tank in the air but as long as I clean the tank once a week IC has no problems with the "sanitary" conditions of the tank.

Your dorm advisor is a fish hater!

*sputters* I would do more water changes for a 1 gallon than once a week...I prefere 100% every other day but some people do 1-50% and 1-100% a week. :)
