New Betta Fish keeper

Hi everyone:

I stumbled across this forum a couple of days ago. I recently acquired a beautiful red male betta fish. I am still learning a lot and right now I currently have him in a holding tank. He came from a home where the owners didn't change his water or anything, so I adopted him and they even gave me the money to purchase his own 10 gal tank. So anyways, I have him in his quarantine tank until his tank can cycle. I am monitoring his Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, etc...at least once a day. I am currently doing his cycling the fishless way.

I think he is taking his time getting out of his shyness phase. This is my first time owning a betta fish and being so thorough about it. I didn't know about the Nitrogen cycle or anything like that with the last fish I had; luckily, he lived about a year or year and a half. My new betta fish's name is Louis, in honor of Louis XVI of France.

Hello and welcome to the forum

It was nice of you to adopt Louis. It sounds like he's going to have a real palace of a home.
