New Betta, New to fish too.

Hello, I started a 55 gallon fish tank in January, after an ich outbreak and losing several fish, I now have this all under control. I have guppies, neon and x-ray tetras, sunburst wags, suckers, black and gold snails, panda/ peppered and spotted catfish. I just got 2 pea puffers cause the snails breed like crazy.

I have this extra 5 gallon tank so I decided to get a Betta. He is blue with red. I'll get better picture of him later to show you. His name is "Anton". The English translation for Anton (short for Anthony) from Greek word meaning "Flower". He sure looks like a flower…thus his name.

Hope this will be a good place to learn as I go.

Welcome, Antoni! Anton is a great name for your betta!! Was your 55 gal your first experience with fish? Pretty daunting for a first-timer, if it was. Glad you've got that tank under control now. It's stressful and awful when the tank is not running right, stressful for the fish AND the humans!! Looking forward to more pics of your water babies!

Yes this has been my first time, my brother n law gave me the tank. I did a lot of research and bought a lot of different things trying to make this an awesome tank for my fish. (I kindda spoil ALL my pets, I used to have finches and had my hubby build an aviary in my kitchen one night).

I am going to post more pics soon.
