While searching for helpful information regarding betta care I was directed to this site over and over again, so I decided I wanted to join this awesome community. My first betta was a bright red VT named Ember, sadly he died last winter during two-day power outage. I recently decided to get another betta (the second noob of the story) and ended up purchasing this guy. He's what petco is calling a "king" betta. From what I have read he's a half-giant PK betta... is that right? Anyway, his personality is amazing! When you watch him he stares right back! He's currently in a 4 gal tank, but I will be upgrading him as soon as I move into my new apartment. His name is Leander, I wish I could have gotten some better pictures, my camera was refusing to focus.
If you have any advice, it's welcome! I look forward to being part of this forum!
