New to Bettas

I have been lurking here for a bit and decided to introduce myself. I am new to Bettas but not fish keeping. I had freshwater tanks many years ago and more recently saltwater reefs. But, I hadn't had fish for a couple years until my husband bought me a Betta.

He is currently housed in a planted 6 gallon with 2 ghost shrimp for "buddies". However, we like him so much we are building him a 36 gallon planted Betta heaven. That leaves the 6 gallon available for another Betta!
We are in love with this little fish. He is so personable and delights us with his almost dog-like behavior. I had $$$$$ saltwater fish that couldn't hold a candle to this $3.99 PetCo VT. He's just that awesome.

So hello! I am enjoying this site a lot and learn something new everyday.

I realized I didn't have a picture of him so I fixed my avatar. He's there now.

My husband named him Chips - as in fish-n-chips. Ugh.

Oooo super jealous of your 35 gallon my perentals wont alow me to have anything bigger than a 10 gallon. I highly sugest corydoras and sand they are the cutest things ever. I recently rescued three from walmart (they had them in the OSCAR tank!)and they play hide and seak and graze along the bottom of the tank in little herds.

Thanks, it's a lot of fun to watch them zoom around and interact with each other.
