Me and the hubby were walking through Walmart the other day and we saw them and started talking about how neat it would be to have one. I know/knew nothing about them so I did a google search and came up with this site. Have learned a lot about them and caring for them and the like and so we went to Petsmart today (the only animal store in this area, which was still an hour away! but the fish staff did seem to know their stuff about Bettas) and got a 10g. tank, all the fixin's, ornaments and a male betta we named Raxicor.
We have the tank set up with the filter on, water conditioner in and the heater on as well and have Raxicor in his cup off to the side. Here is a pic of the tank, I don't have any of him yet but will once we get him settled into his new home in a day or two (not tonight and probably not until after the kids get home from school tomorrow).
