So... I've been lurking about on the forums for a couple of weeks now, and finally decided I may as well register and introduce myself (and my fishies!).
First of all, I'd like to thank the community for being a wonderful resource. Even just lurking I've learned a ton. My two bettas thank you too. Before I stumbled across this forum they were cohabiting one of those teeny "divider" bowls and were listlessly laying about. Now, one of my bettas has the bowl to himself and another is the happy new inhabitant of a 2.5 gal planted tank. Because, of course, I immediately focus in on the harder stuff to begin with. *sigh*
Thankfully, I did research! And this forum, along with the links I found to other forums and sites were a tremendous help. And I'm super happy with the way my tank turned out. It's still really new, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll be when it's fully established.
And Riemman, who wasn't particularly happy with having his picture taken. He kept trying to run away.
Josselin is a much more agreeable fish when it comes to having his picture taken. I swear he was posing for the camera...
So, again, thank you all. I'm looking forward to being an active part of the forums!
