Hello! My name is Mandi and I'm a brand new member here, but a long time betta lover. I have been keeping bettas for 7 or 8 years now. Anywho. I currently work at a one location all natural pet store in MA and I am an inventory manager. We pride ourselves on carrying locally bred livestock and we handpick all of our fish and if it isn't healthy looking it doesn't come to our store... anyways enough of that, I currently am owned by two betta fish. One I left at my mother's house when I moved to my apartment with my husband, mainly because she had lost hers and she really liked him. He is a red butterfly delta tail boy who was turned into our store (instead of being flushed... how nice of his former owners to think of him, eh?) and I fell in love immediately. He's super awesome and wicked quirky and he's HUGE! Has a massive appetite too. He's probably around 3 or more years old and has had a little fin rot so he isn't as beautiful now as he once was but he's currently healthy and doing well.
resting on his leaf. He loves that plant!
his pretty little self. I love my Brucey!
My new betta (yet unnamed) is a black orchid crown tail male. He is awesome. I saw him and had to get him as soon as he came into our store. I just recently moved him into a new 2.5 gallon setup and he loves it. He swims around flaring at everything that moves and he's definitely a spunky little thing. I have yet to pick out a name for him, mostly since I'm totally horrible at naming things... lol
and just because I love it, his new tank. I think it is very classy looking compared to the acrylic "critter tank" he was in before, lol!
That's that. Just wanted to introduce ourselves! Thanks for looking!
