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.
