So, am I doing everything right? I just wanted to know since this is my 2nd month of betta keeping. I also want to thank everyone on the forum for helping me out when I was a newbie. I appreciate it! I had no clue what to do in the beginning. When I was a kid I had a little bowl who I kept a betta named Prince in. He stayed with us for one whole year until I found him floating on the top. :( I obviously didn't take good care of him, but I know better now. :) Thank you!
