I don't have a betta fish anymore, but I'm looking to get started PROPERLY.
As many of you guys know, many newbies about betta fish are often misinformed. I kept my first and only betta fish in a small container (half gallon?) with water temperatures fluctuating from 60-82 degrees Fahrenheit. The betta fish crossed the rainbow bridge and went to a better place after 6 months of having him. I always wondered if there was a better way to keep these fish since they always looked bored in the little container. My betta fish was very active, would stare as I walked by, watching me all the time. He sat on the breakfast counter of the house so he was always occupied watching my family do stuff. Now that I've read so much about betta fish care I feel extremely bad about not providing a safe and wonderful home for the betta fish. Like I am seriously depressed about it. I think I almost cried... Is that weird?
But I know much better. Better now then never! I'm still not 100% sure about getting a betta fish but I'm on the fence with this one. Anyways, I hope the betta fish forgives me for being such an ignorant person and he is in a better place now! So hello everyone!
So hello everyone! :)
