I decided that i liked the idea of keeping fish a while ago and got a tank and accessories to start my first fish tank.
I got a red betta and 3 tetras and they get along fine, but I am not sure that I am doing everything right because my betta has some silver scales and a silver chin. the tank was cycled before putting them in it and the tetras seem to be going fine, i was just wondering if my betta was fine. i found this on one of the threads so i filled it out;
