Smile First Betta! :)

Hello everyone, :)
Well after a year now of checking out this site and seeing hundreds of beautiful bettas in different pet stores, it finally happened. I brought one home! :D He was just so tiny I couldn't leave him there- he can't be more than an inch long minus the tail. I know he is a double tail but have no idea of what to call his colors. Anyways... Here he is!

DTail, your "profile" pic appears on your public profile page, as compared to your "avatar" which you also have to set. Confusing, right?!

Click on the User CP link near the top of the page on the left hand side. That will take you to your personal control panel where you can set up your avatar.

Btw, I like your fishie. I'm very fond of the double tails, both of my current boys are DTs. :)

Sparkeyjoe- thank you!!! It worked :D

And to eveyone, thanks! :) I'm interested in finding out his true colors with some better food and bigger space.
I do have a question though, I checked the ammonia level in his new tank (he is not in it yet) and it showed .25. Is it safe to put him in once it is the right temp? Thanks! :)

0.25 already?
Your water plant must add ammonia to the tap water. Not sure how to fix that.
How big is his tank? You may need to cycle if it's big enough.

It's a gallon and a half. I know its not great but the 3 gallon I bought was cracked and I figured it was better than the cup.
And there is no plants, so I don't understand. It's just sand and a temp gauge in it....
