I am new member to this site. Well we all know y i am here....BETTA FISHES
I got interested in betta fish about a month back but i do not own one as yet...I am waiting until i can afford everything i need based on the posts i have read.
The main reason i have decided to get a betta fish is I still live my mom until i finish university and she has pretty much forbid me from having pets..i love cats..so i decided on a smalled caged friend..
Seeing as it would be the first time i would be owning a pet i decided to go the pet fish route..After much research on what type of fish to select i came across the bettas...and i instantly fell in love with them.. They are so beautiful its unbelievable..
So i am doing my research and making sure i know enough and have enough money before i get one.
I have visited my local pet shop several times to see if they have bettas ..they do (lucky me)....everytime i go to the pet shop i get excited...lol...they store their bettas in a little clip on thing inside the other fishes aquariums...
Today i visited the shop and i saw this really amazing red (my favourite color) betta, it was so small...i think it may be a half moon i am not sure..still dont know how to distinguish all the types...but it looks in perfect condition...I hope they still have it when i go to buy..
So i am planning to get a betta in may...i have too many extra expenses right now but they will be over in may...(yay...lol)...im getting excited just thinking about it...
I live in jamaica which is pretty near to the equator and the temp gets really hot occasionally but generally its warm...i was wondering if i still need a heater for my tank..i am hoping to get a 10 gal. tank..
You can give me any other tips that may have not been stated on the site..can never have too much info..
